large outdoor area

I should have taken my toddler there sooner, as there is a bigger room, bigger and varied outdoor area, and the children are more adequate to her age than in other centers. She has been thriving big time since she started 5 weeks ago, there are many activities and different types of toys, plus the other children are very kind and the carers are very nice, so 100% happy. And she arrives home very tired from all the games and has a big nap. Happy place for my kid.


Great friendly staff. My son loves it there!


My daughter is 4 and she is in lollipops day care Bell Block for the past two years and I really found her school setting safe place for her. The staff manager and members all are good and updated the story of the kids in the story park app which I found very interesting to read about my daughter activities at school. The staff members are very kind, the play area is safe, the inside play rooms for the children are very neat and clean and moreover the school has plenty of activities and play toys to keep the child busy throughout the day. overall, I rate the Lollipops Bell block day care school 5 stars ⭐️


Awesome day care!!


Our daughter has settled in well here at lollipops bell block. The staff are lovely, kind and caring. The indoor and outdoor space is large allowing for lots of different play options and there are always fun arts and crafts resources on offer. Would recommend 100% to other families.


As a new parents and a newcomer in Bell Block, it was very difficult to take care of baby alone, and luckily I found Lollipop at that time.
For me, Lollipop is not a place to drop my child, but a good place that help me to educate my son in his golden age. This place is vert attractive with very good facilities that help parents to stimulate the babies brain, and what is important to me is their staff. All the staff are professional and well trained, they are always take care by love, so I never worry about leaving my child in this place.


My children have just started at Lollipops and I can honestly say they were so good during the phasing stage, very supportive and understanding. My son is in the junior room and has eczema and the staff has been awesome to work alongside with, willing to go above and beyond within their means 😊 my daughter in the preschool room has advanced so much within the small time she has been at Lollipops Bell Block. Definitely recommend.


Excellent Daycare Facility


My son has just started at Bell Block Lollipops and we love it. He calls it "the nice/good daycare" I'm so grateful for all the help and support that both the admin and teachers have given us through this time of change for us.



My son is in the infant room, the teachers were so amazing at helping him settle in and work through his separation anxiety. Now he absolutely loves going. They are so friendly and caring with the little ones.
