All children possess great creative potential. They learn best when given the opportunity to experiment, discover and express their original ideas in a free and caring environment. This is the defining belief at WonderKids.
A purpose-built childcare centre, WonderKids offers a safe nurturing environment where the caring and experienced teachers help your child develop skills for life as well as school. "WonderKids is a complete childcare centre that offers affordable pre-school education," says centre director and owner Rekha Prakash.
A home away from home, the centre aims to create a community of life-long learners. "We value the uniqueness in each child; we encourage 
children to discover and explore their own strengths. But most importantly, the centre allows children to progress at their own pace," says Rekha.
Perhaps this is the reason why children are able to settle easily. In fact, parents often report they have a hard time dragging their children home!
WonderKids came about in response to the needs of children as well as the expectations of parents. Rekha is a mum of five children -- two of who are enrolled here -- and WonderKids is partly born out of her desire to have a quality childcare centre that would meet her own high expectations.
From its Torrens Rd premises, the centre is well located to serve the needs of families in Botany, Burswood, East Tamaki and the adjoining areas. The centre meets the demands of busy families who can now keep their child close to where they live or work. And with loads of easy parking outside, what's not to like?
It is true that children gain confidence with teachers who are affectionate. "The staff are committed, and go out of their way to support working parents, who know their children are in a safe, caring environment," she says. The registered teachers at WonderKids are hired for their experience as well as qualifications. Rekha herself has worked in childcare since 1996 in New Zealand and has a degree in early childhood education.
We have a teacher-child ratio of 1:8.
The teaching system is designed to give children confidence and a competitive advantage for school. The registered teachers focus on literacy and numeracy, and the under twos are able to recognise colours with the use of cards, books and toys. As well as offering a variety of opportunities for exploration and discovery, children who are about to leave the centre for school are encouraged to learn basic skills such as preparing their lunch and getting their school bags ready.
