  • 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 just wanted to thank you and ALL staff for the way you have supported …, myself and her Dad transition to the preschool. Your kind, caring and very approachable manner has meant that I can officially start work today knowing that my baby is in amazing hands. The fact that I have rung everyday and have never felt that any staff member annoyed because it’s ‘that Mum’ ringing again. The fact that nursery staff pack her bag at the end of the day ensure they that give me a detailed run down on her day has all contributed to a wonderful experience.

    We are truly so thankful our local preschool is so great! Thanks again for your flexibility, support and care!

  • To all amazing teachers at Lollipops- I would like to thank you all for looking after Natalya since she was 7 months old. You guys did such a great job guiding and teaching her over the years. She achieved a lot already and started school this week and I truly believe that you helped her build confidence and passion for learning and people and life. I could not imagine her spending the last four years in another place. This centre is by far one of the best ones. Thank you once again

Every day that I drop him off he is so excited to go and see his teachers and friends. The teachers make him feel so welcome and really put alot extra into making his day enjoyable. I cannot recommend this centre enough, and I know Archie agrees!
