What parents say about us


I enrolled my daughter Jia with Lollipops Ellerslie centre about 6 weeks ago. She was new in the country when she started with them and I am happy that we chose Lollipops (Ellerslie) as her first childcare in New Zealand as it has turned out to be the best decision. When she started , she didn't know the language at all and hence settling her down was little more challenging compare to other kids. But the teachers in the centre are so supportive that they went extra miles to give her that level of comfort and not just took care of her but encouraged her to get involved in different activities and used multiple ways to communicate with her. The teachers are so friendly with her that she settled down really quickly and even on the weekends she is talking about going to school now!! I can see that my daughter is learning something new every day and that’s what we want as parents. Thanks you Lollipops!!!


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.

I would like to mention that he had such a great time and lot of learning in your centre. You and your teacher’s are doing great work in making centre a fun and vibrant place for all the children. Tejas has gained so much confidence and this make us all proud. Keep the good work up.

Tejas and I will surely miss you all.


My little girl Sam started Lollipops North Harbour when she was 4 months old. Every time I left her there she was happy and I knew that she is in the most loving, caring and professional hands of the staff. They always made learning fun and she developed very strong bonds with all of her teachers.

Kids Inn provides a stimulating ‘home away from home’ environment where she could safely explore and learn. She learnt new things each day which she would share with us when we got home. It is a very family orientated centre and they encourage parent participation.

Thank you Lollipops North Harbour! Highly recommended to all. 


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

I love how Tracy and Libby are with Ihaia they have so much love for him and are always bubbly.

As parents it is impossible for us to stop worrying about our child. But at the back of our minds we are at peace because we know C is in the good hands of teachers like you. We appreciate your time, your patience and all your hard work. Thank you for the cuddles. Thank you for understanding his body language. Thank you for the kisses that wiped away his tears. Thank you for making a difference in his life. Thank you for being there.

13 years ago, I had to go through the terrifying decision of where to take my son for day care so that I was able to return to work. I found Lollipops Greenlane after looking at many different centres. I walked in their door with my son and have never wanted to leave. I have sent all 3 of my children to Lollipops over the last 13 years because of the friendly, caring, dedicated, special staff who have looked after and loved my children. They constantly look at ways to enhance our children's learning - they now use Storypark which gives us parents the chance to share home with the teachers and the teachers get to share the day with me that they spend with my child. My kids and I have loved every teacher and every minute that we have spent with them.

Sue, ever since day one you have always been so polite and positive, always sharing how my child has interacted with others what he does on a day to day basis. Every morning and afternoon you are so churpee it’s great.

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