Testimonials

  • I am so grateful that we have StoryPark up and running... now let me give you insights how 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". Frances became imaginative which is a good sign that's she's growing up with good and positive outcomes, and it all goes along there for her skills upliftment. And to all the Teachers in Lollipops - thank you so much you all are amazing! Kuddos!

  • Lollipops Vickery, what a wonderful place, they treat our kids like stars. The teachers there are a friendly bunch and we share a friendly laugh.  My girl Zoe loves her teachers, her friends and bush kindy.  I love to hear all the stories that have happened during the day.  I love the fact that some of the kids like to sit down with me and read a book before I go to work.  I couldn’t think of a better place to put my child while I work.  She has been there since she was one and she has learnt so much from all the cool experiences and teachers and especially the friends she has made.

  • Shakira had a great start on her first day at primary school yesterday without an orientation! Huge thank you to Sangetta and her team for being part of Shakira's learning journey.

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

    Being a busy parent is important to choose a daycare that will make a big impact on your kids learning journey and I will highly recommend lollipop Central Park to any of my friends n work mates.

    Thank you Sangetta!!!

  • 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.”


  • To be a Lollipops Teacher is not just a skill but it’s a gift. Gift to love kids to life. You are all God’s blessings to us. You gave us peace in leaving our little angels in your hands. And we are so grateful to have you as daily interim mother to our kids especially to our Ezekiel. God bless and more power to all of YOU!

  • Sue, ever since day one you have always been so polite and positive, always sharing how my child has interacted with others what he does on a day to day basis. Every morning and afternoon you are so churpee it’s great.


  • We have noticed our daughter talks about her friends a lot more now and has formed some good friendships and gets excited about seeing her friends.


  • 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

  • We love how Connor has been encouraged to develop at his own pace. The stories about Connor on Storypark are great, we really appreciate the teacher interactions with the stories that we post. 

    We appreciate the communication from Susan and Flo regarding Connor’s transition into the Mini Todds room. We like how Connor is learning to talk and this is being encouraged through talking to him at his level.

    How the room is set up differently everyday to provide Connor with new challenges and to suit his interests.We love the new skills, actions and songs Connor comes home with. The nature of the teachers by way of excitement and pride when he achieves or maters a new skill.
