Testimonials

We have really been impressed with WanaExcel. My daughter loved it from the get-go. The purpose built facility, really cool resources, yummy meals are fantastic... but most importantly the teachers are just amazing! They have also been very flexible when we needed to switch days or add more time. I highly recommend WanaExcel.

Wonderful family run preschool. Amazing facilities. Our reason for loving this place so much is the 3 and 4 year old programme which gets the kids to swimming lessons, playball, breakthrough nature at the park, a dance school and various other things!!! I think they can now even go biking!!!

I love WanaExcel and am so grateful for the personalised care my daughter experiences there. The staff and owners are all extremely friendly, kind, and knowledgeable and genuinely care about my daughter and our family. It is clean and full of interesting toys, books and other educational materials. There are so many indoor and outdoor spaces for them to learn and play. Their snacks and lunch are cooked/baked fresh every day. The teachers communicate with us constantly about how our children are developing and provide stories and photos of their experiences. From the age of 3 they can take kids to swimming lessons, dance lessons and exercise activities in the park. Makes me want to be a kid! But mostly it just makes me happy to know my daughter is at a fantastic place that she loves to be at.

We couldn't be happier with WanaExcel. The facilities are amazing but even more so are the Staff. They are so attentive. Everyone there seems so passionate about not only caring for the children, but helping along their development”

WanaExcel is second to none! We have experienced a number of ECE centres and WanaExcel far exceeds our expectations. The facility and resources are excellent, all staff are passionate about EVERY child's development, the learning stories are regular and relevant, the centre has its own curriculum which is based on the children's interests and the centre utilises our community experts and environment. The field trips the children have are exceptional!

WanaExcel has ticked all the boxes for our whanau. We have really noticed the family feel and how beneficial this is for our tamariki. The facility really is next level. An on-site gymnasium with endless opportunities... movie nights/discos, changeable rooms which we have witnessed the benefits ourselves. The investment of the staff into everything they offer is really above and beyond, I couldn’t speak more highly. Swimming lessons, dance, biking, ball skills, nutritious meals... seriously what more could you ask for? We are able to enjoy our weekends and save money and time not having to do those extra curricular activities knowing our boys have had fantastic learning opportunities and experiences with amazing friends and kaiako supporting culture, science, music and a Park right next door too. We feel blessed to part of such a great team!

Every day I walk in to collect my little man from Daycare, I feel like I'm picking him up from family - who love and care for him as much as I do. As a first time mum, the girls at WanaExcel have been such a wonderful support to myself and my family in navigating my sons ever changing wants and needs as he grows and develops. The patience and understanding that my many questions have been met with, does not go unnoticed, and it's so lovely knowing that when he is not with me, he is surrounded by people who lovingly create such a great space for him to thrive in. Thanks Team.

We are incredibly lucky to be part of the amazing WanaExcel family. It is such a well resourced centre with a warm, welcoming and professional teaching team. We love seeing our little one grow in confidence and develop such great friendships along the way. The catered meals are an amazing bonus too!
