Hi everyone, I have recently joined Lollipops Patten Street and I wanted to share with you some of the great experiences myself and child have had since joining. Wyatt has made several friends, he has transformed and grown so much in such a short space of time and he loves his teacher Janet (and so do I!). He has become so very confident and all my worries are taken away because of how excited he is to go to preschool and because Janet is such an amazing person who is so approachable and  ensures everyone is welcomed, reassured and communicated with”. Can’t say enough how much I love this preschool.  Mel

Our daughter has thrived in the nurturing environment created by the wonderful team at Lollipops Patten Street.

Jeanne & Warren

Lollipops is an inviting and inclusive community of teachers, children and whanau, where all children are valued as individuals and treated as such. We have loved the strong home/school connection where the teachers have worked with us to provide consistent care and gone above and beyond with creative solutions to meet the needs and goals of our son.

Lolliepops is a brilliant service, the staff are kind professional and my children adore going there every day I wouldn't have it any other way couldn't be happier with this place :)

Dave Wilson

Absolutely love the place and my son does too! They made us feel safe and welcome from the first site visit and my son is thriving thanks to them.
