Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“Great centre, very clean & welcoming, great educators always very polite and helpful, I would highly recommend World of learning Waterford to anyone who is looking for a daycare centre for their children… This is the 3rd centre i have enrolled my son in & he would not settle in the other 2 since being at World of learning Waterford no more tears or stressful meltdowns not wanting to go to kindy… The staff at World of learning are fantastic!!”
“I have been with world of learning for almost 14 years, my 7 children have all attended the service. World of learning is an amazing childcare center, the educators go above and beyond and my babies love all the educators there. There is so much learning going on and my children love coming home at the end of the day and telling me what they have learned, I love the daily update of photos through Kindy hub as well as their observations. There is always something cooking which smells amazing and my children always tell me how good their food is. The staff are always ready to help with whatever you need as well as giving helpful advice and tips. I would recommend world of learning to anyone at all, it is the best childcare service and I wouldn’t send my children anywhere else!!”
“My daughter loves it at Waterford West World of learning. Every time I go to pick her up she doesn’t want to leave, she has to much fun. The educators are really lovely.”
“My son and I moved over from New Zealand at the start of the year and back home he was at the same daycare for 2 and a half years. Coming to World of Learning was so easy, the staff always made sure my son was involved with the other kids and made myself feel very comfortable with leaving him there. Am honestly so glad I put my son into World of Learning, we both absolutely love it!”
“I have three children attending the service 5 days a week. All Educators are extremely friendly and are willing to go the extra mile for everyone. The service is always well presented and clean. Each day my children are excited to check the chicken pen to see if they have laid any eggs. A lot of resources and learning materials are available at all times for each child. I highly recommend Waterford West World of Learning.”
“We first used Waterford West World of Learning when our daughter was 3 1/2 years old. She’s now 8 1/2 and now our son goes there and our daughter goes on school holidays. The teachers are amazing. The best ladies you could ever have to care for your children. Some of them were my daughter’s teachers and are now my son’s. They remember each kid they’ve ever had. You feel that there is a connection between the teachers and the kids, and that’s so important. The price is in the higher range as day care centres go, but honestly, I wouldn’t have my children go anywhere else.”
“My girls have been at the service for 3 years now I have found the staff to be wonderful they treat all children like their own. They are always full of smiles and welcoming. So nice to walk into a service that’s nice, friendly and clean place to leave my girls, I would never go elsewhere, World of Learning is the best by far.”
“My four children have been through this centre, and I can say without a doubt that the WWWOL is one of the best. Having been through a couple over the years, they have consistently improved their care facilities and programs, with extremely helpful, personalized service and attention to detail right from when you walk in the door. You can’t help but smile when you see the kids interacting with their friendly carers, their environment full of possibilities and activities and all their friends. They have fully featured indoor and outdoor areas, up-to-date technologies like tablets for the kids, iOS and Android apps for booking and staying up to date, and fantastic healthy meals for the kids. I can’t fault Waterford West World Of Learning, and can only tell you to give them a try. You will not be disappointed.”
