  • Our son went right through the Lollipops Hazeldean classes (from 6 months old and is now at school) and our daughter has done the same (and is now in the prep room).

    We would highly recommended this fantastic preschool as the teaching staff and management/admin are very friendly, skilled, and supportive, and have helped immeasurably in shaping the lives of our children.

    Also with delicious and nutritious meals provided and the ability to adjust hours to suit makes it so convenient. We never considered another preschool option, and have never changed our mind that Lollipops Hazeldean is the best place for us and our children!

  • I'm a happy mum and happy to see Dovi settled in lollipops. I would definitely recommend Lollipops. All the credit goes to loving, caring affectionate teachers sharing knowledge with kids and parents

  • I enrolled my daughter Jia with Lollipops Ellerslie centre about 6 weeks ago. She was new in the country when she started with them and I am happy that we chose Lollipops (Ellerslie) as her first childcare in New Zealand as it has turned out to be the best decision. When she started , she didn't know the language at all and hence settling her down was little more challenging compare to other kids. But the teachers in the centre are so supportive that they went extra miles to give her that level of comfort and not just took care of her but encouraged her to get involved in different activities and used multiple ways to communicate with her. The teachers are so friendly with her that she settled down really quickly and even on the weekends she is talking about going to school now!! I can see that my daughter is learning something new every day and that’s what we want as parents. Thanks you Lollipops!!!


  • I just wanted to send a quick message out to everyone involved at Lollipops Central Park. Tomorrow will be Adele's last day at Lollipops and I sincerely want to thank every one of you as part of Adele's extended family. To all her friends and their families - thank you for being part of our lives, we often hear stories about you during the weekend and I know how much your children love and care for adele, some of the older ones give Adele a pat or kiss on the head goodnight! Which is just awesome! It has been a pleasure to receive hugs, smiles and watch your children grow alongside ours. To Sangeeta & her fabulous team - every hour of every day that Adele has been in your care over the last year has been crucial to her amazing development. Your care, love, understanding and desire to give these children only the best is evident and I truly can't thank you all enough for everything you have unlocked in Adele. You have been encouraging and supportive with our views/feedback and we can only recommend/advocate for the center.

  • Lollipops Waiuku has been a wonderful place for our children to start their learning journeys. The staff are warm, friendly and clearly love what they do which made my transition back into the workplace so much easier knowing they were in great hands. The communication with teachers has been amazing, with regular updates on how our children are going. Lollipops has helped to spark a love of learning in both our children and they are consistently given opportunities for this to flourish with high quality learning opportunities. We are so very happy that we chose Lollipops.


  • Thank you for looking after Cooper, you have all made us feel like part of the Lollipops family. We will be highly recommending you guys to anyone looking for care for their children.

    Thank you for everything and we will miss you all


  • 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.

  • Lollipops Greenlane is one of the best decisions I have made. To call this place a day care would not be fair. This is my daughter’s second home basically. She loves it. The curriculum doesn’t JUST include playing outdoors on the swings, but it actually includes exciting activities. From painting to making mosaics and from play dough to baking cakes. All the teachers are amazing. They understand how hard it is for families to leave the kids at the centre and they look after the kids as their own. WE ARE ALL ONE BIG FAMILY….

  • Dear everyone at Lollipops Oteha Valley, thank you so much for all of the love and support you have given to Georgia and our family over the past year. You have helped make her totally ready and confident and have embraced her individual spirit and love of dress ups. Without you guys life would be very tricky for us and it is lovely to know that when you drop your child off they are happy. Thank you so much
