Parent Testimonials

Karen Zhang

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.

James McCosh

I send my kids to Learning Links. It’s a great centre, the staff are lovely and really care about the kids.

Wenyu Liang

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

Min Wang

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!

Amber Courtney

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.

Gina Smith

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

Kristen Burnett

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.

Amanat Gaurav Arora

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.

Renee Ward

I feel very fortunate to have got my youngest daughter Lara into learning links. Lara absolutely loves going everyday to she her friends. Staff are always attentive to her needs, and are friendly and approachable. Thanks guys.

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.

Our purpose- built centre at 486 Alexandra Street Te Awamutu is right in town and only a short walk from most schools. We provide an amazing environment and a real focus on natural surroundings. With a nature based outdoor environment including challenge courses, sensory areas and even a fire pit we offer the best of nature and town.

The indoor environment is designed to create a real sense of community with a dedicated babies area and a large indoor area for the older children. With an extensive range of opportunities for children to play and learn and an amazing range of play areas for your child to excel, our team looks forward to welcoming your family.

For Parents there is a dedicated area for you to relax, have a coffee as well as catchup with friends before starting your day.

Some of our latest adventures!

Forest Programme (At Learning Links Hector Drive)

Connecting children to nature is something we are passionate about at Learning Links Hector. An enriching programme like this certainly isn’t something that was decided one day and began the next – it has taken a lot of preparation, consideration and dedication.

Well today, our passion became a reality! The group headed off on their expedition within our local community. They began this weekly ritual with a forest karakia and a willingness to explore and test their limits in the dense bush. We are very proud that our tamariki showed such respect for the beautiful forest and its creatures and this will be something that they will remember for many years to come – a huge thank you to our Kaiako, Rebekah and Ana for bringing our programme to life today everyone should have a good sleep tonight!

Our tamariki are becoming increasingly confident and familiar with the forest. They have already gained a strong sense of direction and able to show their kaiako which way could lead us to the destination.

They were lucky to find and try some kawakawa, which we learnt that the leaves can be made into medication that helps our digestive system. We even brought some back to our centre for our friends to try as herbal tea.

No doubt, the muddy puddles was the favourite. It was such fun for each of us to get wet, get muddy and be engaged with nature! We are also amazed to see the growing resilience of our children when they slipped into mud, when they got dirty and when they were in dilemma. They were determined to take risks and challenge themselves, physically and emotionally!

It was equally impressive to notice how tamariki cared for each other and helped their peers out of a challenging situation, they were demonstrating their growing social competence and caring nature in their bush play! We highly recommend getting out into nature - the children will surprise you!

As we continue to connect locally, to our Rototuna area, we discovered Rototuna means "lake of eels". In Pre-European times, our area had a lake named Tunawhakapeke. The lake and surrounding swamps had an abundance of tuna resources. As a result of our new knowledge the tamariki are discovering where the tuna like to live now and what they like to eat! Trying to coax them out of their hiding places, the children have been patiently dangling some food for them and to hopefully catch a glimpse soon!

Instagram post 2180370603069335217_8634969210 We have been undertaking our bush program for four months now, and over this time we have tried multiple ways to attract and feed the eels. Well.. this week we were rewarded!
Not long after arriving, in the rain, we set ourselves along the bridge ready to try and draw the Eels to our spot to observe them. We started off dropping a couple duck hearts into the water and a trail of blood (as advised by Richard). We didn’t need to wait too long before a New Zealand short-finned eel popped out. This one was however a little shy, choosing to move around in the grass to retrieve its food. Not long after this, the New Zealand Longfin eel showed itself, flicking up the dust from the bottom of the stream and quite greedily eating all the hearts that were offered.
As we explore why it is our duty to look after the eels in the Gully Jaxon, identified that if we don’t “there will be no eels to eat our duck hearts”. Building awareness and a willingness to care for and protect our precious taonga. .
