1906 South Dunedin Kindergarten open in St Peter’s Church Hall, Cargill Rd then shifted to Wesleyan Church School room.  A new building opened in 1914 as Rachel Reynolds Kindergarten.  This was demolished in 1977 as an earthquake risk and the present kindergarten built in 1978.

“You have the wings to fly here”


All families and children are welcome to our Kindergarten.  At Rachel Reynolds 2 - 5 year old children have fun, play, and learn together in a caring and happy atmosphere where they are encouraged and supported to respect and care for each other. 

We have a strong bicultural focus with a daily emphasis on using te reo and tikanga Māori. We are proud that each year our children perform at the Māori Pasifika Concert.

Many schools, shops, and services are handy to our kindergarten.  We hope you enjoy your time at Rachel Reynolds Kindergarten as we aim to make it a happy one.  Become part of our community, meet other families, and maybe enjoy sitting on our comfy sofa for a chat.
