Learning links is more than a Montessori, it is a community with experienced teachers who really care about your child and your family. They make the effort to get to know you as a family so they can focus on creating an environment which incorporates values that are important to you. Our son loves going to Learning Links.
We recently moved our son to Learning Links the education and care given is wonderful and our son absolutely loves being there! I would definitely recommend it to any parents with children looking at there childcare/education options!!
Cannot speak highly enough about Learning Links. All their staff are so kind and loving that it does feel like family. They all care and know you by name. Its structured paradise!
They are just so good! Great community, great teaching and learning… My daughter loves it!
Our daughter is absolutely thriving at Learning Links, i’m so pleased to have this place, and its lovely staff, in our lives. Wonderful people who really care about the kid’s development and the happiness of the whole community. Very highly recommended.
I cannot recommend Learning Links enough! The teachers are absolutely amazing and are genuinely passionate about the children. The centre is incredibly organized and certainly doesn’t look like a standard chaotic daycare. The teachers are absolutely incredible at this centre and interact with the children throughout the day and help them flourish so well. This centre also thrives on low teacher to child ratios which is excellent. Above all, I genuinely believe that this centre sets a standard for other… centers to aim towards.

As a parent of a young 1 year old boy who attends learning links, i would highly recommend it. My son has been going for 3 months now and he enjoys every moment. As a mother i am consistently updated through storypark of his daily activities and all the fun he is getting upto. His teachers are lovely and very attentive, and all the teachers recognises my son by name. Such a wonderful daycare.
Super stoaked with how well my daughter has settled in to her new center and how lovely all the teachers are there. my daughter loves going and even asks on the weekends. thanks for providing such a great centre.
Learning links has been so accomodating to my girls needs, always a fun and happy environment. My girls are absolutely loving it
Learning Links is wonderful!!! The teachers have done such a fantastic job helping my son to settle in. My little guy had separation anxiety and they have gone above and beyond to help him and myself with the transition to daycare. I couldn’t recommend them more.
As the ‘Duel’ parent for my son, Learning Links has given me the confidence to know he’s well cared for & happy. Staff are amazing & always willing to support & action individual needs. Im also Grateful for there sustainability practices.
My daughter loves Learning Links! She started when the centre opened and has established some wonderful relationships with her teachers. They are getting the best out of her and ensuring her learning experiences are positive and appropriate for her age and social skill set. 100% recommend.
My daughter LOVES learning links! The staff there are So friendly and loving and caring, I would recommend this daycare centre to anyone!! She has so much to tell me about her day everyday when I pick her up, they do the coolest things there and she even sleeps the best she ever has! Thanks Team LL – you guys are amazing X

I would definitely recommend this centre to everyone because I can see how my daughter is growing into a confident girl. The teachers are amazing.
Highly recommend! Have both our kids enrolled and couldn’t be happier! Amazing teachers, facilities and location!
Highly recommend looking at enrolling your child here. Our experience so far has been amazing. The staff are so kind and caring, the environment is amazing for our kids to play, learn, create and grow. We have had no problems at all with this center and we are glad we chose to change our daughter to this center. our daughter has blossomed so much since attending learning links.
Would absolutely recommend this centre!! My son has been attending for a few months now and we love it! The confidence I have seen in him over the last months is amazing! The staff are all so welcoming and lovely. So glad we found this centre.
Today marks last day of Arya at Learning Links but I am sure she will cherish every moment spent with awesome teachers, friends and other staff at the centre. Arya started at day care when she was 10 months old and she was very determined little girl. We all knew it was not going to be an easy transition but thank you to all the teachers for their perseverance and patience. It got easier and easier as days passed. I… knew Arya was in the best care while we were working. Arya has developed lot of skills and has become very social and confident girl. I personally think it would have been very hard for us to do this while working full time. We love how the centre chose different activities at different stages like for instance painting, making something out of grocery boxes, writing a book, art work (box full of those at home), celebrating different cultures, dancing, yoga and the list goes on.. Learning through activity and play is very cool and I can see Arya become more relaxed and creative, solve problems and engage with others. It is also great to see the concepts of sustainability introduced at the early age. This has definitely made Arya think twice before doing anything that will affect the environment and she will follow this for her lifetime. It has been amazing 4 years at Learning Links and we as parents have learned a lot ourselves. Teachers have been so great with providing the updates regularly and also making sure parents aspirations are met. It is always great to see stories on Storypark as proud parents. The meals provided at the centre are awesome and you looked after my girl very well. Thank you so much Krissy, at times I am told off for not making the lasagne as tasty as yours J Thank you all very much for nurturing Arya and bringing out the best in her. She has grown into independent little girl wanting to explore more. She is so ready for school and I am sure the learnings from day care will help her settle at school. You have all become part of our lives and we hope to see you around. We wish you all the success with your new centres. Hope it all goes well!! Read more “Falguni Shah”
I was a stressed out parent to settle my overly pampered child in new childcare after a recent change of place and a new born at home. I came along learning links and after enrolling my child here all my worries came to an end. With the type of support and attention received I found drastic change in my child’s behaviour within a month. He had been listening to us , understanding and adjusting to new routines. All this been… possible with lovely and caring staff. Thank you learning links. Highly recommend. Read more “Pooja Kakkar”
As a parent I’m happy that my daughter is happy in this environment. She adores her teachers and gets involved with activities that i wouldnt necessarily provide at home.
As both a teacher and a parent within Learning Links I could not recommend their Early Childhood Education environment more. I started my time with Learning Links as 3rd year student and they were so warm and welcoming. The past 4 years have shown me immense support, growth and professional development as a teacher. On top of this at 6 months old my son joined me at Learning Links in the Infants room. The teachers were beyond loving, engaging and… supportive towards him and he continues to grow so much in their care. Read more “Gina Smith”
I have a 2 year old and 4 year old, with my oldest starting as an infant. I was crazy fussy when it came to who I left my son with and since starting at Learning Links, both have gained so many new skills also making friends. I can’t thank the staff here enough, they also include and welcome parents and grandparents which is awesome.
My daughter started at Learning Links childcare when she was 8 months old and she is now ready to go to school next year . She enjoys going to the daycare everyday and has made so many good friends there. The teachers at learning links are so friendly, patient and professional. I would recommend this child care center to the parents who live in this area- your kids will love it!
As a parent at Learning Links, I love the warm and welcoming environment that my son learns in every day. The educators are wonderful and their kind nature has enabled my family to build a trusting relationship with them and the centre. I love that my son is well supported and encouraged often to step outside his comfort zone and try new things.
Don’t know where to start really. In two weeks time our second child will graduate from Learning Links and suddenly a period of 7 years will come to an end just like that. All the staff are absolutely wonderful and we cannot thank them enough for their support, enthusiasm and wisdom. Our children have flourished and have absolutely loved their time at Learning Links. We are extremely grateful for their care and support and we will miss them greatly. I… will still sneak in from time to time to steal some of Chrissy’s baking and for some banter. Thanks team and all the very best, you all deserve a medal! Read more “Tjitte Weistra”
Clean, well-run centre with low staff turnover. Great teachers and organisation. My daughter is so happy to go which assures me she’s at the right place. Highly recommend.
I highly recommend Learning Links. My daughter started in the ‘under 2s’ room almost a year ago and has since transitioned into the toddler room. She absolutely loves the activities that they do and her teachers are fantastic, she has lots of friends who she talks about a lot! As a parent I enjoy dropping her off to friendly smiles from the office team in the mornings (Tania & Marie) and the awesome cook, Krissy. The toddler teachers are so… energetic and engaged in what they do and also so very nurturing. The staff turnover is very low which provides a stable, consistent experience for the children there. My daughter loves it and we love it too. Read more “Nikki Thomas”
As a parent at learning links, I love that the teachers are so friendly and caring for my little boy and even me! they do heaps of fun things and keep me updated regularly. Highly recommend them.
As a parent at Learning Links I think I definitely made the right choice for my 2 year old daughter. She absolutely loves going each day and has learnt so much already! Her vocabulary is getting bigger everyday and she is definitely benefiting from the socialization with other children. It gives me peace of mind knowing shes in a loving and caring environment.
Amazing place , great teachers highly recommend !
I have been to so many other centers and nothing compares to this centre. The teachers are amazing and genuinely care for the child. The fees aren’t extravagant. My son absolutely loves going there and doesn’t want to come home most days because he is having so much fun playing and running around with his friends. They have a playground out the back and on sunny days spend alot of time outside enjoying the sunshine. Love this centre!
This childcare centre is just amazing. Their staff are passionate, caring, kind and interested in you and your child. The small groups help to grow the bond faster.
Learning Links Childcare is a nice modern centre with a lovely learning environment and the staff are caring and attentive.
We are so happy our boy is in Learning Links…he absolutely loves it. We were apprehensive about sending him to another day care as the last day care he was in turned out to be a disaster, he didn’t like it there at all. He is happy now and settling in well.
We are so happy to have joined the Learning Links. My little one has never been the easiest at morning drop offs but at Learning Links she is always greeted by huge smiles and loving arms. I really appreciate the extra care taken to settle her in each morning and am always able to discuss her day in detail with her teachers at pick up. We love all the different areas for play and learning in the centre, especially the… beautiful vege gardens outside! Read more “Vanessa Slingsby”
As a parent of Learning Links I am so grateful I made the choice to send my daughter to such an incredible centre. Having moved from a different town, I was really worried how she would settle in, but as one of the first to start she absolutely loves it. I couldn’t ask for better carers to look after her while i’m at work, they have created such a special bond which is so reassuring to see. The centre is… such an awesome space, with so many resources and things to do, she never wants to leave. Could not recommend Sam and her team highly enough to anyone thinking about joining the Learning Links……..you won’t regret it Read more “Charlotte Bedford”
After searching high and low for a centre I felt comfortable with, learning links opened and from our first visit we immediately felt at home. Wonderful, welcoming environment! My children are thriving and have fitted in so well into a centre environment. Thank you so much learning links.
My son and I have recently joined the Learning Links and we are both loving being part of a nurturing, creative and fun learning environment. The centre is conveniently located and the staff here are caring, inclusive and student driven. Always lots to do, it is often a mission trying to get my son out the door – a reflection of how safe he feels here. Thank you for making his transition a smooth one.
Amazing centre. Friendly staff, very professional, and such a fun and safe place for children to learn.
As the parents at learning links childcare we would like to highly recommend you come to experience here if you are about enroll your kids to a kindergarten. Nice and friendly staffs, better environment than the others, and I bet your kids will surprise you when they showing what they have learned. Come to talk to them, you will find out more than I said.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Learning Links. My son started at Learning Links in Toddler’s room and the teachers were very caring and responsive which made it easy for him to settle down. The friendly supportive environment offered at Learning Links means that children can learn at their own pace and build their own independence and confidence. This is important as a baseline for their success as they continue their academic… careers. I like the fact that they are continually working on different projects, organizing different trips (like Hamilton Zoo, YMCA, etc) and have so many activities for the kids. I would highly recommend Learning Links as a child care that offers so much more than a traditional kindy and a richer experience than just a daycare. Read more “Rohan Patel”
Love the teachers and admin staff who have been so kind and supportive, brilliant at looking after my 3 children. Highly recommended.
As a parent at Learning Links, I was impressed deeply by their services from a few experiences. There were a couple of times that I didn’t pick up my kid in time. When I rushed into the center about 15 mins late, I saw two teachers sit patiently with my kid and they never mentioned late pick-up fine. They joined the recycle campaign and initiated a free reusable bag to each kid to carry their wet clothes, which shows the… center’s care of environment and did a good model to teach the kids to take care of our lovely environment. The whole center is like a big family. Every teacher, each admin lady, the cook and the cleaner are so nice to each one who enters into the center with a genuine smile. They even remember the kids’ names who already left the center a few years ago! Read more “Wenyu Liang”
Very friendly staff and clean and safe environment for kids. Kids always happy to be at the centre, as parents that very important.
I send my kids to Learning Links. It’s a great centre, the staff are lovely and really care about the kids.
As a first time mum I was so apprehensive putting my child into daycare, but the team at Learning Links went out of their way to make it a pleasant experience. I leave my child confidently each day knowing he is in good hands with the wonderful ladies in the infants room and I go to work happy that he is well loved. They say you’ll know which daycare is right for your child and that couldn’t be more true,… from the beginning I felt that Learning Links was the right choice for my boy and so far we couldn’t be happier!

As a parent at Learning Links I think the centre is second to none. We feel as though we have become a huge part of the Learning Links family, and have built trusted relationships with everyone inside those four walls. Our daughter has grown so much and I truly believe we have given her the best start in preparation for school next year.
It is with a very heavy heart I will be saying goodbye to the Learning Links family within the next month. Four years ago I left my precious four month old baby girl in the hands of Learning Links, and like any new mother had all the fear in the world. Within days I knew I had made the right choice, with loving carers to nurture her and a safe environment which allowed her to explore. What I loved most… about my decision to put my child in Learning Links was the caring teachers, the food (I have to put emphasis on this, as I loved knowing that Armani was getting wholesome meals made every day), the exploring and learning that is encouraged, and most of all the comfortable and safe environment that is provided for my girl to be excited to go to daycare every day. Armani is now reaching 5 years old, and I am proud to say that Learning Links has been a huge contributor to the girl she is today. Shes a bright, caring, happy and social little girl that is ready to hit school running. Read more “Alice Addy”
I highly recommend Learning Links Childcare. My children go to Learning Links. My older daughter was a shy, anxious little girl. Like all other first-time mothers, I had so much worries about her adjusting into a new environment. I was impressed with the teachers being so caring, self-confident, attentive, and responsive to my daughter. They gave as much individual attention as she needed. The teachers play and talk with the children, smile with them, and praise them for their achievements.… My older daughter was well encouraged with her social skills and positive behavior. I think I made a very wise decision sending her to Learning Links. Now my older daughter is 6 years old. She turned out to be such a positive, happy, confident, caring, social girl. Every time she goes to learning links, she still gets all the greeting from her teachers. My second daughter also goes to learning links. She absolutely enjoys it as well. There is low staff turnover, which ensures a secure environment for children. There are opportunities for creative work, imaginative play, and physical activity, and space to move indoors and out for all the busy children. Read more “Karen Zhang”
As a parent of learning links I love how they provides a fun and safe place for children to learn, create and explore with the guidance of the friendly and encouraging teachers my daughter talks so fondly about!
Highly recommend looking at enrolling your child here. Our experience so far has been amazing.

We have had no problems at all with this center and we are glad we chose to change our daughter to this center.

Learning Links has been nothing but outstanding for my son since we moved to Hamilton earlier this year. All staff from administration through to teachers in every area are friendly, welcoming and more importantly working for the benefit of every child in the centre and ensuring a rich learning experience which develops well-rounded young people at all ages. They are also extremely communicative with whānau and work with you to ensure the best for your child. Couldn’t rate them more… highly. Read more “Katie Blackett”

THE LEARNING LINKS APPROACH TO CHILDCARE
We believe that Learning Links stands out from the rest through its commitment to three important educational priorities:
Learning through play
Keeping children emotionally healthy
Educating with a sustainable environment focus
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Play based learning supports children to develop confidence in their capabilities, work creatively and discover an endlessly new world. As children explore with curiosity the environment, and engage with it, they learn foundational language, science and mathematical concepts in a meaningful way.
KEEPING CHILDREN EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY – THE ‘LOVE LANGUAGES’
Children express and receive love in different ways — some through acts of service; others through affirming words; gifts, quality time or physical touch. By understanding your child’s unique love language, we are able to develop a deep and strong individual relationship ensuring your child feels loved and cared for.
Learning Links is committed to sustainable practices and is striving to be a zero waste organisation. We have a strong focus on reducing, reusing and recycling. Children have the opportunity to take part in gardening, potting, growing, harvesting, cooking and eating. We believe that the link between nature, food and wellbeing is vital so we aim to make these links as visible as possible. Forest sessions are included in our program providing opportunities for children to learn and grow outside the centre and connect with the natural world.
