Testimonials

  • Most of the Teachers are friendly and sociable.  My daughter has really taken to a couple in particular.  The food the children are given always looks really yummy and nutritious.  During the summer the centre has good ‘sun-safe’ practices.    There are lots of opportunities to get involved as a parent and regular events for the whole whanau to attend.


  • Our children love the Coatesville Learning Centre, the staff are extremely welcoming, caring, creative, happy and fun with the children.  Ella-Rose (2 years old) is most upset if we pass the centre without dropping her off.  The facility is extremely well organised and clean, the meals are tasty, balanced and healthy.

    My son Nathan loved the grass hopper soccer sessions that are also run at the centre, and the Coatesville primary school visits they ran, set his mind at rest to starting school.  We are pleased to have such a well run centre in the community

  • Lollipops Hastings is a place where I can leave my son with confidence and piece of mind, I know my son will be well looked after. A great place for children! The warm feelings starts from the reception, get a warm welcome with a beautiful smile at reception. Teachers are awesome they know everything about kids, what they had to eat, how long they slept, a neat and clean place, flexible for working parents. A safe place for your children. Highly recommended *****

  • My daughter Hazel loves the teachers and environment at Lollipops Aubrey Street. She feels comfortable and there are so many opportunities for her to learn.

  • Lollipops Aubrey Street has enabled my children to flourish by encouraging them, respecting them as individuals and building exceptional relationships with them. I know from the feedback and insights I get from the Kaiako that my children are nurtured here and their achievements noticed.  I feel like the centre is an extension of my family, a relationship I will miss when my youngest moves on to school.  It's always a welcoming and fun place to come as a parent, and to me this means it's a great place to come for my children.

  • 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 Lollipops North Harbour Team have cared for my daughter since she was seven months old. During her time her at Lollipops North Harbour she has grown into a confident two year old.

    She loves her time at Kiwis and often does not want to leave at the end of the day. I know she is in caring and kind hands when I leave her at Lollipops.

  • I was pleased with all the teachers at Little World, how patiently and kind handling the kids and teaching them good manners that now my daughter has become a well mannered one. It was a very big thing and a good practice for the young ones to bring when they grow up and my daughter is one lucky child. I cannot thank Anu and Naveen enough for accepting my daughter in Little World, you are so kind...thank you words are not enough but we really "Thank You" for making a big changes in my daughter's motor development knowing she's having delays but now she's coping a " LOT". F became imaginative which is a good sign that's she's growing up with good and positive outcomes. And to all the Teachers in Little World- thank you so much you all are amazing! Kudos!
