Ice experiences at Learning Adventures Mangere East

Ice sensory experiences provide an opportunity for children to explore with their hands. There is no right or wrong way. You can touch it or taste it and smell it. It gets the brain working and our children enjoy it in so many different ways.

Testimonials

  • I have 3 super active boys who attend Learning Adventures Airport Oaks & they have the best time. They all started as 1 year olds & the transitions through each room seemed so smooth. I think the quality of learning has amazed me the most. Re-telling stories, reading numbers and some letters and pronunciation are just a few of the great skills my boys have adopted which I am truly grateful.

  • Learning Adventures Cobden is an amazing place to bring your children to. They have a lot of activities for the children to play with. Brand new heat pumps with a loving environment. All the teachers are very friendly and are willing to help with any concerns your child needs. Awesome place I would highly recommend as a preschool for learning.

  • The teachers support my child in his interest and provide him challenging learning opportunities.


  • My family have been treated nothing but warm and welcomed since we had our very first visit. Claire and Kim have made my 5month old and 17month old feel like they are part of their very own family. Even though both of my two are in the unders room, all of the teachers great both myself and my children as we step through the front gate. The staff are quick to give me a hand getting my kids to the car which is a huge help! 

    My 17month old just loves the outdoors and she is able to play outside as much as her heart contends. I know when she comes home all colourful in paint and sand that she has had a great day! She has advanced so much in her short amount of time, I am simply amazed. 

    I chose Learning Adventures Katikati because of the wonderful feedback and reputation they have. They haven't disappointed! I now travel from out of town just to bring my kids there because of how much we are all happy with the beautiful environment Leigh and Stormie and their team have created.

  • The children at centre are all great friends.


  • Friendly environment, happy to leave my child in trusted hands and he loves it too. My child has learnt so much in the short time he has been here. Thank you lovely ladies for your awesome attitudes every day and for all that you do for my little boy.


  • The greatest thing that i can say about Learning Adventures Katikati is that both of my daughters wake up every morning excited to go to "school" as we call it. They both love their teachers, friends and the environment they get to spend their day in. We notice nearly every day that our girls have learnt something new - a new letter, a word, a fact, a skill or a song.

    They are both more socially active also. The teachers are always very welcoming and available to speak to if i have any concerns or want to float an idea past them. Deciding to put our girls into Beachkids was the best decision we have made for children to benefit their learning and social interactions with other children.

Thank you all for welcoming us!!
