Dan is generally very happy to go running into Little Wonders Oanaka, drop his bag, find his friends, get into things and wave us goodbye. Little Wonders Oanaka has been a great 'second home' for Dan. The environment and classrooms are well equipped, well thought out and the teachers create new and interesting spaces and places regularly within these.
The centre has an open welcoming feeling for kids and their parents. The teachers are amazing and the best part of Oanaka! Knowledgeable, approachable, fun and passionate about teaching. The team works so well together, and that is reflected in settled and easy manner of the kids in the rooms. I enjoy the philosophy behind the teaching approach, appreciate the time the teachers take to talk things through, identify important learning points for Dan and generally just love and enjoy him.
I find drop offs and pick ups a really nice time - the management staff ensure that as you walk through the door there is time for a chat, the teachers in the classrooms are happy to fill in events of the day and there is always a chance to talk to other parents along the way. It is just an all round great place!
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.
The staff at Little Wonders Oanaka are friendly and caring. They have a great outdoor area, and philosophies that are aligned with our beliefs of raising our children. It’s been a great learning environment for the kids
