This truly is a five star place to be! Since starting our son at the ole school house approx 8months ago we couldn't be happier! I'm actually ever so greatfull we found the place wouldn't want to be anywhere else. For us it all comes down to the staff they are amazing each and every one of them. Our son has a daily book were we see everything he's been up to also email pictures and stories we feel very kept up to date with his progress. They are very vigilant with nappy changes, and also provide wholesome an nutritious food. Every time I turn up there is not one kid out of place or upset, they are very in touch with every child's needs and its very obvious. Our son loves it there it is very much like a second home with a family like feel. Highly recommend!!!:-)

我有兩個小孩一個快四歲一個兩歲,去過ROTORUA幾個幼兒園參觀與學習過
直到遇到THE OLE SCHOOLHOUSE這個學校才讓我放心跟安心的將我們的寶貝小孩託付給他們
因為每個老師都很友善及細心,讓小孩子都不抗拒去上學,喜歡待在學校
有時候去接他們時候他們還不想回家,
所以讓忙於工作的我們可以專心工作。

My wife and I are so extremely pleased with the level of care and attention our daughter receives at the daycare that we only wish we had taken our son there before he started school. The staff are uber-friendly and so supportive. They made our daughter feel at home from day one and their communication is reassuring. The family-feel you get and caring nature of all the staff there is truly amazing. She has the best time there, and they regularly go out on trips and special activities away from the premises. I've recommended The Ole Schoolhouse to all our friends with kids and will continue doing so for many years.

I love the Ole Schoolhouse I have my two children there and the teachers are super supportive and work alongside parents to provide the best care for individual children. I feel confident to talk to the teachers about anything I have to. I changed my children from another daycare to the ole school house and it was the best choice I ever made. I love being apart of the ole schoolhouse and my girls love going to see their teachers and friends. :) :)
