Testimonials

  • My son has been going to Learning Adventures Mangorei now for 2 years.

    They staff have been incredible with settling him in each day and making him feel apart of the great family atmosphere that they have.

    He has multiple food allergies so this been a great learning curve for the centre to accommodate him. They are amazing, finding different brands of foods that I have suggested to bring into the centre so that he can eat similar foods to the rest of the children and not feel left out.

    There is always fantastic activities around the place inside and out to do so this caters for all different children’s interests.

    I’m always informed of changes or important events happening at the centre which is great as a parent to know what your child is doing when you are not there.

    I highly recommend the centre to anybody looking for child care.

  • Thank you for making my child’s day special on his birthday.


  • 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.


  • Enrolling with Learning Adventures Airport Oaks has been one of the best things I have ever done for my son. His development has exceeded all my expectation and he just loves to go.

    In six months I have seen him learn many new skills including games, singing, dance, drawing and painting to name a few. Also with the development skills he is learning a lot of words, how to interact with others well and follow instructions. All of the carers are warm, caring, fun loving and friendly, whilst at the same time are extremely professional. I know and feel I am leaving my son in the best possible hands.

    The design layout of the classes are great, meeting all your child’s needs or wants and the daily structures are so well planned and executed even with the changing weather my little boy seems to have a fun filled and adventurous day, every day. I always feel he is safe and well looked after. To Trudy and all the Little Kiwi team at Learning Adventures Airport Oaks I don’t know what I would do without you. Thanks

  • The centre is very neat and spacious. All the teachers are very friendly and my daughter always looks forward to coming. Also nice to know morning tea is provided every day.


  • My children love Mangorei early learning centre. The management and staff are passionate about their work, they are very kind and caring. They are very helpful with giving ideas and tips on how to manage different behaviours that we can experience at home. 

    The facilities are great and they have fun learning themes throughout the year that the children really embrace. There are many daily activities for the children to choose from. My children love it so much that they are very reluctant to leave most days.

  • My child is getting the best care and learning here at Learning Adventure I’m very grateful


  • On my daughters first day at the centre, they made the settling in process so easy, I felt so welcome and my daughter settled happily into her new day care.


  • 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.

Thank you all for welcoming us!!
