We have noticed our daughter talks about her friends a lot more now and has formed some good friendships and gets excited about seeing her friends.


The Tui Room teachers are great with my child. They make such an effort to greet him in the morning knowing that he enjoys that interaction to help settle him in for the day. It's awesome that they are so proactive and such lovely people.


It's been amazing seeing the transition unfold from Tui Room to Kakapo Room. So much great stuff for our son and his little mates to take on being the little fishes again in the big pond. Thanks to the teachers for your support in our son’s development. We both have so much to be grateful for having him develop so well at Lollipops


I can’t believe my child eats so well when he is at Lollipops, he loves Ela’s cooking and tells me mine isn’t the same as Ela’s.  You offer such a variety of healthy meals I don’t need to worry!


Your induction into the centre and settling procedures have really helped, I feel I can totally trust that my baby will be cared for and happy after spending the past two weeks in the centre doing settling visits.  I never thought they would be so happy. I feel that you understand


Knowledgeable friendly staff, fantastic location, convenient parking, great facilities, secure, clean, good values

I cannot fault Lollipops Petone. It's an amazing place to leave my son and I feel so lucky to leave him in such amazing and caring hands.
