What parents say about us
When it was time to return to work after the birth of our first child, I was apprehensive about choosing a child care centre. From my first visit to Coatesville Learning Centre, I was impressed by the genuine care shown by the staff and teachers. Since attending, our daughter has grown in confidence and at the end of each day she is eager to tell us about the activities she has taken part in.
Parents are kept well informed about their children's progress and the lines of communication are always open. It's wonderful dropping a happy child off in the morning, knowing that they will be nurtured in every way. The large open playground is a huge bonus! Thank you Coatesville Learning Centre for giving our daughter a great start to her early education.
I would like to let you know, how grateful I am for the love and care you have shown myself and my granddaughter. As you know, we have had some individual needs. Not once were we overlooked, and without hesitation, every team member dedicated time, research, other services available, knowledge, understanding, compassion and a listening ear.
Lollipops day-care centre, the programs, policies and procedures are always focused on our child's/moko's and whanau's best interests, whether that's educational, physical, cultural, diversity or self-discovery.
Each one of you, holds our children's/grandchildren's lives in your hands, they hold, your trust, in their hearts, every time, I walk out that door, you have my entire world! and that, is the privilege, I have entrusted, with this day-care.

I just wanted to thank you and ALL staff for the way you have supported …, myself and her Dad transition to the preschool. Your kind, caring and very approachable manner has meant that I can officially start work today knowing that my baby is in amazing hands. The fact that I have rung everyday and have never felt that any staff member annoyed because it’s ‘that Mum’ ringing again. The fact that nursery staff pack her bag at the end of the day ensure they that give me a detailed run down on her day has all contributed to a wonderful experience.
We are truly so thankful our local preschool is so great! Thanks again for your flexibility, support and care!
It has been a second home for Aadya from the time she has joined the centre, initially it was very difficult for me as a mother but the love, comfort and care provided by the teachers in Taniwha room compelled me to forget all my worries...
I have seen amazing transformation in Aadya (be it her walking, talking, social) etc, over she is growing to be a more independent girl and I am so proud to see that.
Lastly, I would like to give special thanks to her primary care giver, Parminder who has been a source of relief for me specially in the initial days.
Vrajesh returned from his India trip in Feb-end and after being at home with mum for some time, we are keen to re-enrol him at Waiwhetu Lollipops again as he misses the teachers and children there.
Lollipops Aubrey Street has enabled my children to flourish by encouraging them, respecting them as individuals and building exceptional relationships with them. I know from the feedback and insights I get from the Kaiako that my children are nurtured here and their achievements noticed. I feel like the centre is an extension of my family, a relationship I will miss when my youngest moves on to school. It's always a welcoming and fun place to come as a parent, and to me this means it's a great place to come for my children.

Storypark took me a while to work it out. The girls put photos up so I feel part of some of her events. It is great. Thank you
Lollipops Greenlane is one of the best decisions I have made. To call this place a day care would not be fair. This is my daughter’s second home basically. She loves it. The curriculum doesn’t JUST include playing outdoors on the swings, but it actually includes exciting activities. From painting to making mosaics and from play dough to baking cakes. All the teachers are amazing. They understand how hard it is for families to leave the kids at the centre and they look after the kids as their own. WE ARE ALL ONE BIG FAMILY….

Our son went right through the Lollipops Hazeldean classes (from 6 months old and is now at school) and our daughter has done the same (and is now in the prep room).
We would highly recommended this fantastic preschool as the teaching staff and management/admin are very friendly, skilled, and supportive, and have helped immeasurably in shaping the lives of our children.
Also with delicious and nutritious meals provided and the ability to adjust hours to suit makes it so convenient. We never considered another preschool option, and have never changed our mind that Lollipops Hazeldean is the best place for us and our children!

A massive thank you to Liz and the team for organising the trip to Staglands. Olly had so much fun and told us all about the bus and the animals he saw. Debbie said the trip was well organised and Liz did a very good job running the day and making sure everyone was safe and having a good time.
Hopefully Next time I can come too.
