Both of my sons attended Little Wonders Oanaka from age 9 months - 5 years. The children absolutely loved their time at daycare and made many friends and truly fell in love with their teachers! The teachers in the classrooms were always very forthcoming with stories and information from the day, and loved sharing all the cute (and not so cute) bits with me.

Little Wonders Oanaka is like a real family, it always made me feel great dropping the kids off in this loving environment that was a "home away from home" my children both have wonderful memories of their time at childcare. The communication with the parents was flawless and we always knew what was going on. I would 100% percent recommend Little Wonders Oanaka. 


Little Wonders Oanaka, thank you!

The kind things that you wrote about our family and my wee girl warms my heart!

And I cannot even begin to imagine our time here in Wanaka without Little Wonders Oanaka. 

It has been such a fabulous experience for Chancey and ourselves. In all seriousness, thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Chancey has transformed and grown in so many ways in this short time that we have been inspired to follow your example. I truly feel that her time at Little Wonders Oanaka has changed the way we parent. 

Although Chancey may not have really solid memories of her experience with Little Wonders Oanaka, I know her little soul will always remember. 

What you and your staff do is beautiful and it shows through every day.
