To the teachers in the Rising 5's and all the teachers throughout the centre who have supported Braden.  Thank you for all your hard work.  It has been a fun and also challenging journey and we will miss you all.  Braden would not have come as far as he has without the work you have put in, Lollipops Hastings.

Thank you very much for everything you’ve done for us, especially for Milla. It’s been a great journey with you Milla has grown into a very confident and happy girl. Wish you all the very best, with Love Milla and Irena.

We enrolled at Lollipops Hastings in 2013 when Stella was 3 months old. Words cannot express how grateful our family is for each and every one of the amazing Lollipops early childhood teachers and staff who have shared in our lives. At times, in Stella’s life so far, when all around us is chaos and changeable the one constant has been Lollipops; our second home. Warmest regards, Josie and Stella Morris.

Lollipops Hastings is a place where I can leave my son with confidence and piece of mind, I know my son will be well looked after. A great place for children! The warm feelings starts from the reception, get a warm welcome with a beautiful smile at reception. Teachers are awesome they know everything about kids, what they had to eat, how long they slept, a neat and clean place, flexible for working parents. A safe place for your children. Highly recommended *****

I would like to thank you all for all the support, caring and encouragement you all have given Reyansh. Reyansh has been showing interest in lots of different activities.

Thank you for creating such a challenging environment and learning for Reyansh.  He Loves the Peanut song with all the actions. He has also shown lots of interest in other nursery rhymes and dancing.  He has also been paying with balls – throwing and kicking them. He loves helping me and his Dad in the garden. Reyansh is also getting better. Reyansh has been saying a few words clearly.
