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.

  • 13 years ago, I had to go through the terrifying decision of where to take my son for day care so that I was able to return to work. I found Lollipops Greenlane after looking at many different centres. I walked in their door with my son and have never wanted to leave. I have sent all 3 of my children to Lollipops over the last 13 years because of the friendly, caring, dedicated, special staff who have looked after and loved my children. They constantly look at ways to enhance our children's learning - they now use Storypark which gives us parents the chance to share home with the teachers and the teachers get to share the day with me that they spend with my child. My kids and I have loved every teacher and every minute that we have spent with them.

  • When it was time to return to work after the birth of our first child, I was apprehensive about choosing a child care centre. From my first visit to Coatesville Learning Centre, I was impressed by the genuine care shown by the staff and teachers. Since attending, our daughter has grown in confidence and at the end of each day she is eager to tell us about the activities she has taken part in.

    Parents are kept well informed about their children's progress and the lines of communication are always open. It's wonderful dropping a happy child off in the morning, knowing that they will be nurtured in every way. The large open playground is a huge bonus! Thank you Coatesville Learning Centre for giving our daughter a great start to her early education.

  • Lollipops is an inviting and inclusive community of teachers, children and whanau, where all children are valued as individuals and treated as such. We have loved the strong home/school connection where the teachers have worked with us to provide consistent care and gone above and beyond with creative solutions to meet the needs and goals of our son.

  • Thank you Lollipops, Korbin was very shy and use to take a while to start new ventures, since starting with Pukekohe lollipops Korbin's confidence has grown so much. Korbin loves to learn and create, and was given the opportunity to do both at your centre. Thank you all for loving our son, and supporting him with his development. Korbin is loving school and I believe this has a lot to do with the preschool work the Tui class provides. I'm glad that Ella will have the same opportunity

    Thank you Ladies xx

  • My son thoroughly enjoys his time at Lollipops in the Super Tots classroom. His teachers encourage his development in all aspects, and ensure that he is happy and having fun at the same time. We have open communication between home and daycare, and know that everyone is working for the best outcome for my son. It is great to see how happy all of the children are and the different learning experiences they are having.

  • 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.

  • For a first time mum I was so nervous about putting my little boy into full time care at only 5 months old, the ladies in the little kiwis room were amazing really put my mind at ease from day one and enabled me to return to work relaxed that he was in great hands. They are so friendly and know days when he needs a few more cuddles. The ladies helped me so much with tips and tricks for sleeping and feeding, teething etc and I luv hearing what the lil guy has been up to when I pick him up in the arvo, such a great team! Thank you so much.
