Testimonials

  • I am really pleased that I found Learning Adventures Airport Oaks for our son. He started in the under two’s classroom as I began maternity leave, and was welcomed and settled in well. He was supported extremely well through his transition to the over two’s classroom, and only two months into it, he is so comfortable it feels like he has been there much longer!

    We have really enjoyed the events put on by the centre and the welcome given to other family and friends.

  • Our daughter has been attending Beachkids Katikati since 2013 and has absolutely loved it there! From the beginning, we have always felt a part of the Beachkids family.

    We have really enjoyed seeing the transition our child has gone through from a 2 year old to a school ready 4 year old, as well as the many exciting programmes that have been on offer during her time there. We like the central location and the security of the centre.

    The teachers are wonderful and friendly and our child is very well looked after. We love our Beachkids family!! We think they are the BEST!!!

  • I first enrolled my son to start at Learning Adventures Warkworth when my husband and I began planning to purchase a business. As we moved through the business purchase process we needed flexibility with my son's daycare needs as we often had changing appointments. Learning Adventures Warkworth were always able to accommodate our needs, and our son got to have a wonderful time developing and playing with resources that we don't have at home! I love how comfortable and confident our son is with going to daycare, and I know he is being well cared for by all the lovely teachers and staff. Thank you!

  • 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.

  • People make a place and I have found the staff at Learning Adventures Warkworth supportive and helpful while providing quality care of my two children, and would not hesitate to recommend Learning Adventures Warkworth to anyone.

  • 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

  • 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.
