Our Story

Our mixed aged centre is an inviting, nurturing environment where children are empowered to learn and grow together.

We offer a rich variety of learning experiences, within a beautiful, stimulating and fun environment.

We teach within a unique concept, where we provide families and their children the opportunity to learn and play alongside each other. We are very family orientated and encourage all members of the whānau to be involved in our centre curriculum.

 

ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.

Testimonials

  • The team at Little Wonders are absolutely amazing! The bonds they create with the children are genuine and strong and the staff are like an extension to our family. The children all show kindness to each other and a genuine care for the teachers, other children and the centre environment. The teachers help support each child's interests and constantly set up new and fun activities to extend their knowledge in really fun ways.  All teaches are approachable and accommodating.  I would have no hesitation recommending Little Wonders.

  • We've been attending Little Wonders for just over three and a half years now. Over that time, Cooper has grown into the most amazing little man who is confident in himself. He has developed the social skills that allow him to interact with his peers but also remain independent when he needs to. He is surrounded by the aroha and support of his teachers and they definitely have become his family. If he could, he'd happily attend 7 days a week. We love Little Wonders and the relationships with have with everyone, they've made us feel very loved over the years. 😁

  • I am so incredibly happy with Little Wonders, the staff who work there and the philosophy they operate under. My boy has established such strong relationships with his teachers that he will confidently ask for help or seek comfort from them should he need too. He has also grown into a sociable little chap, learning the importance of friendships and understanding how these are built with other children. He still has a strong hold on his independence, which is nurtured and encouraged at the centre. As a parent, I couldn't think of a better environment for my boy. 😊

  • We have been attending Little Wonders for three years now and could not recommend a better place for our children to grow. The environment is nurturing, warm, supportive and loving, this shows with the special bonds that have been developed between the children and teachers.

    The centre is very inclusive, parents are engaged and the children are so respectful and happy. The teachers are the stars at Little Wonders, constantly creating new activities for the children to challenge themselves and explore. I can't recommend Little Wonders enough!

  • When we drop Maiaorere off, she's always so inquisitive, curious and constantly looking around at all the different people and environment.  When we pick her up she's always so happy and joyous and it feels good to know that she feels happy there.

    It's really important to me that she be enrolled somewhere with a happy and loving wairua. So it's reassuring to me to know that she is happy when we drop her off and still happy when we pick her up.  That tells me the teachers and children there are loving towards her and she feels that.

    All the staff are so helpful and wonderful. Other than hoping Maiaorere is immersed more in Maori, I could't fault Little Wonders.

  • After struggling to find a day care to suit our daughter Kaia due to a job change, we were having a bit of a hard time. Kaia had attended an amazing day care in Hastings but sadly we had to relocate to the Napier area. We got her in at one close to our home, but it wasn't going to plan at all & simply did not suit Kaia's or our needs.

    Then one day Kaia & I were doing our groceries when we bumped into Sandy - Kaia's old day care teacher from Edu kids Hastings. We got talking & Sandy mentioned there may be a spot for Kaia at Little Wonders Greenmeadows, so from there we arranged to come & meet the team as soon as we could.

    Upon visiting Little Wonders, we instantly fell in love. Kaia was comfortable there straight away, everyone welcomed us & I instantly knew this was the centre I wanted to send our daughter to.

    Choosing the right centre for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make. Kaia attends Little Wonders full time Monday- Friday. As a parent you must make sure all your child's need & yours are met. I can safely say that all our needs are not just met with Little wonders but the go above & beyond. It is a lot of time every week to be away from Kaia & her from Ben & I but knowing we have chosen an environment like the one she's being nurtured & cared for in makes it all a bit easier.

    The teachers - From day dot these teachers have made sure not just Kaia but Ben & I are 100% comfortable & cared for. From all areas to do with both inside & outside of the centre.

    Kaia's whakapapa & Maori heritage is also another aspect we as parents are extremely invested in & this has been beyond respected & practiced with her throughout her time so far at Little wonders. For us as parents this makes us extremely blessed that what we practice at home is also being used with her throughout every day she's at day care. We are also very impressed by everything Kaia has been taught so far & all the philosophies that the centre follows.

    At the beginning of 2019 our whanau will grow by one more so that will mean Little Wonders will gain a new friend late 2019. I already feel content about having to return to work after maternity leave knowing our son will be nurtured & cared for by the whole team at Little Wonders Greenmeadows.

    Thank you again & again for everything, we are excited for another year with you all.

  • My son has been attending Little Wonders for a couple of years now and he absolutely loves it.  The staff are wonderful with him and I love the bonds he has formed with them.  I feel content knowing he is well looked after and gets the care, love and attention from everyone at the centre. The staff engage with the parents to find out what values are important to them and to ensure the needs of each child is met. It is a great centre with enthusiastic and kind staff and a bunch of great children!

  • My two children have been attending Little wonders for several years now. What can I say…..it feels like home. The teachers are so attentive to the individual children’s needs and interests, families are warmly welcomed and there is a real sense of comradery . I couldn’t recommend Little Wonders on Guppy Road more highly, I completely trust the team knowing that they will look after my children as if they were their own. Thank you for giving me a safe, supportive and nurturing environment for my children, giving me that peace of mind I was looking for when returning to work.
