  • 18 months old daughter loves Lollipops. How do I know? Because she is smiling when the lift opens in the morning, because she waves and smiles to everybody we meet in the hall, because she gives high fives, because she hugs her teacher, because I see joy on her face when I arrive in the afternoon. That is why I love Lollipops, too.

  • We are so happy with Little World, the surroundings, staff and activities are all wonderful. Both G & H have and still are thriving in this environment. It is lovely to see the relationships that have been built and it is obvious that our children are very happy to spend time at Little World. I love the fact that there is so much thought and effort taken into creating play and learning areas for the children. The centre is always changing to keep things fresh and new to stimulate the children. I have been impressed with the multicultural aspects and love that G often sings songs and uses words from the Maori or Chinese language, G sang 'Happy Birthday' on her own in three different languages in front of extended family, it was a precious moment. The children have special relationships with the teachers, and because of the warm, nurturing manner of the staff, it makes me feel secure in leaving them in such capable hands. The communication from the teachers and owners to the parents is also excellent. The daily highlights, newsletters and screen show that plays all give a fantastic overview of what the children are doing through the day. What stands out for me is that Little World is very family orientated, the atmosphere is always welcoming. The centre is a 'home away from home' that is safe and supportive and where the children are treasured.

  • 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.

  • My granddaughter Olivia Malcolm has been attending Lollipops Educare Birkenhead for the last three years.

    During this time, myself and our family have been extremely satisfied with the care and education Olivia has received.

    On a weekly basis I have been at this daycare. Additionally, I have attended many functions.

    At all times I have been very impressed with the educational programmes, particularly evidenced by Olivia's communication, literacy and numeracy skills. Olivia has benefitted from a caring and nurturing environment and particularly enjoys a close ongoing relationship with Sunita. Olivia enjoys and enthusiastically participates in special days and events such as 'Superhero Day', 'Pyjama Day', 'Recycle Fashion Parade' and the Christmas Party. Parents and relatives are always warmly welcomed and personally greeted.

    Olivia is clearly thriving at this establishment and we are thankful for the positive experience our precious one is enjoying.

    I have worked in education from Primary School to Tertiary level over many decades. so feel that I can cast an appraising eye and make sound judgements.

    Shakira have develop her social skills, independence, speech and learning to share with the other kids at this centre.

  • I have a high health needs child and Kids Inn Fantails have gone above and beyond to not only keep her safe (no hospital trips related to daycare this year!) but to include her!

    They can alter the activities to keep things safe for everyone. Seeing her face the first time she was able to help make and then eat something not made at home was delightful.

    I continue to recommend Lollipops North Harbour to anyone I hear looking for a family environment for their littlies!
