  • The Tui Room teachers are great with my child. They make such an effort to greet him in the morning knowing that he enjoys that interaction to help settle him in for the day. It's awesome that they are so proactive and such lovely people.”


  • Storypark took me a while to work it out.  The girls put photos up so I feel part of some of her events.  It is great.  Thank you

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Lollipops on Ruapehu Drive has provided excellent education and care for both of our daughters since they were seven months old. The educators at Lollipops are lovely, warm and caring who build strong supportive bonds with the children. The kids are always happy, relaxed and confident to approach their teachers with stories, questions or just for a cuddle. Our eldest daughter has now moved on to school and Lollipops has provided her with such good preparation that the transition has been seamless. Our youngest daughter loves it so much there that it often takes a good half an hour just to convince her to leave at the end of the day.

    Nappies and nutritious food provided throughout the day is great. Lollipops also take the time to investigate and implement extracurricular activities for the kids such as swimming lessons, bush walks, football lessons, and trips out of town such as to the Wellington Zoo. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the teachers are always available to talk about the kids’ day. They also make good use of Storypark, an online journal of our child’s activities which is lovely to see pop up at work.

    We would happily recommend Lollipops on Ruapehu Drive to any parent and will be sad to leave this community when both our daughters are at school.
