Testimonials

  • Lollipops Greenlane is a great centre for our 3 boys. The teachers always make an effort to keep us informed of their learnings. Storypark has been a great addition to keeping us informed. The children are always happy and love their teachers. The environment is safe and caters to their interests and learning needs. Thanks so much for loving our boys as much as we do.

  • 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

  • Your induction into the centre and settling procedures have really helped, I feel I can totally trust that my baby will be cared for and happy after spending the past two weeks in the Centre doing settling visits.  I never thought they would be so happy. I feel that you understand


  • 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.

  • The team are great - professional yet friendly.  I feel confident leaving my daughter with them as I know she is supported in a caring and nurturing environment with people who genuinely care about her.

  • It was such a tremendous feeling dropping our  little girl off at a safe and caring environment. Thank you all so much for what you have done for Gabby and us for the last 4.5 years.  Thank you so much.

  • We would like to express a HUGE thank you for all your hard work. We cannot tell you enough just how grateful and happy we were to leave Rares in your care. We know every first time parent would probably feel the same but you are such an amazing team of teachers and it shows.

    Thank you

    Rares, Iuliana and Dragos Florea

  • I love how Tracy and Libby are with Ihaia they have so much love for him and are always bubbly.

  • A massive thank you to Liz and the team for organising the trip to Staglands. Olly had so much fun and told us all about the bus and the animals he saw. Debbie said the trip was well organised and Liz did a very good job running the day and making sure everyone was safe and having a good time.

    Hopefully Next time I can come too.

  • It's been amazing seeing the transition unfold from Tui Room to Kakapo Room. So much great stuff for our son and his little mates to take on being the little fishes again in the big pond. Thanks (teacher) for your support in our son’s development. We both have so much to be grateful for having him develop so well at Lollipops
