Welcome to
Wana Excel Education Hub
Why our centre?
Providing meaningful learning experiences

No matter where you come from or whatever your background may be, experience has taught us that there is no better form of education than that provided through life experience.

Positive early experiences in a safe, nurturing, happy, stimulating environment shape the way children learn, think and behave throughout their lives and we are excited to host a wide variety of educational and cultural experiences for the children at WanaExcel. With specialised areas and staff catering to the needs of babies, children and young adults of all ages, WanaExcel will provide the best learning opportunities to support your child’s individual requirements.

Learning Community
Where its good to get lost in the right direction

WanaExcel is a leading-edge concept where meaningful learning and care are paramount and is the culmination of our family’s lifelong dream. We are fortunate to have purposefully built our innovative Centre on Cliff Wilson Street, within walking distance of all the local schools and right in the heart of Wanaka.

Breakthrough Kids

Our Breakthrough Kids Programme is an exciting time for your child as they begin the adventure of a lifetime of learning.

Discovery Centre

Our Discovery Centre works alongside our transition room to further support learning through sensory experiences that enhance cognitive, language, motor and social skills and a freedom to explore these concepts in the context of the wider world in our very own ‘mini world’ environment.

Exploration Lounge

Our Exploration lounge caters to our infant children and provides a safe, secure, home-style environment where your baby can learn, play and grow.

Transition Lounge

Our Transition Lounge allows our Team to provide children with a supportive environment that empowers them and allows them to feel accepted as they grow.

Does your child deserve the very best?

Together, our passion and commitment to working as a team will provide you with the best possible learning and developmental outcomes for your child/ren.

The Best Environment

Everything in our indoor and outdoor environments has been designed with your child’s needs in mind. Nothing is spared when it comes to the creativity and development of our learning environments in order to cater to the individual needs of your child.

THe Best Care

Adult – child ratios are at a premium at WanaExcel over and above the Ministry Of Education requirements to ensure our children get the added attention, safety, individualised care and learning opportunities they need. Our team show a real commitment to the loving care and education of your child no matter what their age.

The Best Parent Partnerships

The WanaExcel Teaching Team works alongside families in partnership, valuing parents as first teachers to enhance your child’s development. Daily communication is a top priority to keep you informed about your child in an informal way, while comprehensive records of your child’s photos, milestones and achievements are available to families online and at the Centre.

The Best Nutrition

Healthy bodies create healthy minds! At WanaExcel your child will enjoy food that is sourced from fresh, local products whenever practical and possible. Natural wholesome fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, meat and poultry will be served to children daily across Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea with a late snack for those still with us at the end of the day.

The Best Exercise

Our ‘Energy to Burn’ Gymnasium acknowledges the importance of physical exercise to your child’s development. Our all-weather indoor gymnasium area means that no matter what the elements throw at us, your child has plenty of opportunities to develop their motor skills and burn off their extra energy through dance and exercise.
