  • Lollipops Greenlane is one of the best decisions I have made. To call this place a day care would not be fair. This is my daughter’s second home basically. She loves it. The curriculum doesn’t JUST include playing outdoors on the swings, but it actually includes exciting activities. From painting to making mosaics and from play dough to baking cakes. All the teachers are amazing. They understand how hard it is for families to leave the kids at the centre and they look after the kids as their own. WE ARE ALL ONE BIG FAMILY….

  • Ever since my daughter Aliza joined Lollipops, I have seen a world of difference in her. I was very apprehensive about leaving her alone without me not knowing how she would feel and acclimatize. But I was reassured by the caring nature of the staff who have looked after Aliza ever so well. They have not only helped out with integrating her amongst the kids at lollipops, but also with ensuring she is looked after from all aspects including her physical wellbeing, diet and help with toilet training! Every time I come to pick Aliza up she has a big smile on her face and it warms my heart! I would recommend Lollipops Greenlane to anyone!

  • To all the teachers- A quick note to say Thank you for everything you have done for Roman over the last couple of years. Roman is going to miss the centre very much! I cannot thank you enough for what an amazing centre Roman has been blessed to be a part of. You are all always so friendly, approachable and caring to all the kids. I have always felt safe leaving Roman in your care. Thank you once again for the important role you played in my little learner and the boy he is!

    Thank you for creating such a challenging environment and learning for Reyansh.  He Loves the Peanut song with all the actions. He has also shown lots of interest in other nursery rhymes and dancing.  He has also been paying with balls – throwing and kicking them. He loves helping me and his Dad in the garden. Reyansh is also getting better. Reyansh has been saying a few words clearly.

  • Vrajesh returned from his India trip in Feb-end and after being at home with mum for some time, we are keen to re-enrol him at Waiwhetu Lollipops again as he misses the teachers and children there.

  • Sammy loves going to Lollipops North Harbour. The Staff are very friendly and always greet us with a warm smile. It is a great feeling knowing your child is in a safe, nurturing and fun environment when you have to leave to go off for work everyday.

  • I would really like to pass on the feedback I got from my son's teacher after his first week at school. She said that he is definitely very school ready and they’re impressed with how he’s doing. A huge thanks must go to Mihiri and the preschool team at Lollipops Newton for getting him so prepared for school.

  • I was so pleased to see the wonderful display of Makaton at daycare that Jo had constructed.

    Sophia has been learning Makaton as a way of communicating for 2 years now due to a delay in her speech language development and we have found it so helpful for her and us.

    Embracing Makaton at daycare is so inclusive, as a mum that initiative from Sophia's teachers is just so wonderful to see.

    It is also a useful skill for the teachers and other children to learn.

    Thank you Jo!!


  • Dear everyone at Lollipops Oteha Valley, thank you so much for all of the love and support you have given to Georgia and our family over the past year. You have helped make her totally ready and confident and have embraced her individual spirit and love of dress ups. Without you guys life would be very tricky for us and it is lovely to know that when you drop your child off they are happy. Thank you so much
