My granddaughter Olivia has been attending Lollipops 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 evident by Olivia's communication, literacy and numeracy skills. Olivia has benefited 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.

My husband and I have been very happy with the standards of care and have never had any concerns about leaving our son (& daughter downstairs) in their capable hands. Both teams go the extra mile and look to actively engage the children on many levels, for example the Xmas fashion shows, gardening, waterplay. Our son has thrived under the care of Sunita's team and through their commitment to learning he has developed more rounded interests ie drawing and writing not just cars and activity. Similarly our daughter is happy under Janelle and her teams care and love, and has honestly never fretted at being left in the loving embrace. There is evidence all around that the centre's child-centric approach is more than a value written on paper.

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.
