Parent Testimonials

Nikki Martin

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.

Chanelle Bruce

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.

Pooja Kakkar

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

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.

Anna Roters

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.

Karis Anderson

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.

Shaun Sayer

A huge thank you to the staff at Learning Links Horowhenua for making such a huge impact on Barax’s learning and upbringing these past three years. For a single parent to be able to rely on others to help bring up a child can be hard. Knowing he was wanting to go along to daycare was a definite relief for me. The old saying it takes a village to raise a child is so true! Thank you for being part

We believe that Learning Links stands out from the rest through its commitment to three important education priorities: Learning through play, Keeping children emotionally healthy, Educating with a sustainable environment focus.

Our converted villa at 70 Queen St West offers an expansive environment and a real focus on enjoying the outdoors. With a refresh scheduled in mid 2020 this centre has a great reputation with the local community.

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!
