This is what some of our families have to say about us.

Lindsay Mackrill - Belmont - Sept 19

Beautiful, engaging environment. Awesome staff. So welcoming and caring. We ❤ Belmont Learning Space

James Ballinger

We are so very fortunate and blessed to be part of the learning space Whanau. From day one they have been nothing but caring and welcoming to our family. All of the staff are engaged and treat all the children with the utmost care each day. Children are encouraged to explore their environment and begin a journey learning and discovery each and everyday. All children and looked after and treated as unique individuals. Our daughter loves every day there and is racing out our door to get to Belmont Learning Space each morning. She has the biggest smile on her face when she walks through the doors. We could not be happier knowing our daughter is in such an amazing environment each day.

TLS is a respectful, caring centre and our son loves it here. He's been at TLS for about 2 years and right from the very beginning I could tell this centre was special. We are kept up to date with his daily activities and how he's progressing on his learning journey. Very highly recommended.


Our son Oliver has been attending Takapuna Learning Space since he was 6 months old and we cannot recommend the facilities and team there enough. When we walk in the door the teachers and children all greet Oliver by name and it is so reassuring to see how excited he is to see everyone. The carers have got to know Oliver and his routine well and the communication around his daily adventures and development is fantastic. It is great having the peace of mind that Oliver is in a safe, fun and above all caring environment every day.

Elissa- Takapuna Sept 19

This is a fantastic day-care, my daughter has been going there for two and a half years and I am really happy with the staff and the centre. I did my research and visited all of the daycare's in Takapuna before deciding on TLS and have not regretted my decision. I was really impressed with the settling in period initially and the fact that they always have primary carers making the transition to the different rooms, as she has grown, seamless. She has bonded really well with all of the teachers and they are all so great with the children and parents. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this centre.

Like any parent, the thought of leaving our daughter in someones else's care was terrifying! We could not be more grateful for the time, patience and understanding received from the staff at Takapuna Learning Space . Yve and Melanie are incredibly accommodating, more than happy to have my daughter and I visit daily for three weeks prior, in fact they recommend it. The time was invaluable, we felt comfortable with my new role as a working mum and importantly Ivy is thriving! Her teachers are truly an extension of our family, and the love, respect and interest they show her is genuine. The philosophy at TLS is a beautiful one and mirrors exactly what we want for Ivy. She loves the heuristic play and the whole family gets so much joy reading about her day in the Pipi room. We couldn't be happier!

Linda - Eden Terrace Sept 19

The Eden Terrace centre is an amazing space for our little boy. The staff are fantastic and caring and I swear he loves it here more than home. We've recently moved away from the area but have not even considered changing daycares


I strongly believe TLS has an easy understanding and amazing philosophy. Teaching, communicating and learning through the experience of watching children grow independently couldn't be done any way better. Everyday my daughter comes home, she has learnt something new. Even the smallest of things like a new word or pronunciation of a word being clearer than the day before making it easy for us to understand. Sometimes it could be a physical action like learning how to get up the step and the down the step. From the first day we walked in I felt such a warm, loving vibe in the space. This allowed me to be comfortable straight away, and I hadn't felt this elsewhere! Perhaps my daughter felt the same vibe and emotions around her as she had such a great transition. I look forward to watching her connections with her peers grow. 

Olivia- Eden Terrace

Amazing childcare centre with great facilities, but what makes this place really special is the incredible staff

Julie Rowe- Eden Terrace

Our daughter has been at The Learning Space for about a year now. We chose this centre in particular as we were following the RIE and Pikler philosophies as first time parents and were keen to find a centre that aligned with this. After reviewing the small selection of centres in Auckland that are Pikler inspired, we chose TLS based on its boutique size, the respectful, smart and passionate staff, and the beautiful well thought out space of the centre itself. Our daughter absolutely loves TLS and I feel that her time there has helped her grow into an independent, confident and loving toddler, thanks to their respectful and patient approach.
