Mariposa kids is great, our daughter literally runs in there every morning keen to see her friends and teachers. They really care about the children and the extra activities for parents and kids are really appreciated.

Our first child started with Mariposa when she was just over 1 years old and spent the next 4 years at Mariposa. In those 4 years she learned so many important pre-school skills and this was down to the very supportive and caring way the teachers at Mariposa teach the kids. My son now attends and is in his 3rd year and absolutely loves it and I have no doubt that he will learn just as much as my daughter did. They don't have a high staff turn over and both my kids are being cared for by the same teachers even tho they are 4 years apart. The centre has such a warm and welcoming feel, with the teachers always willing to assist in any way to make the morning drop off as easy as possible for both child and parent. When I drop my kids off, I know they are getting the BEST CARE and I feel very lucky to have found Mariposa! I would highly recommend Mariposa Kids!

Our daughter joined Mariposa at 11 months shortly after moving to Auckland and she has been very happy there ever since. The teachers are brilliant and clearly care about all the children and that they enjoy learning with new themes being developed regularly. Our daughter is now a confident, happy three year old who tells us all about her fun days st the centre.

We have been involved with Mariposa Kids for more than five years, with my second child currently attending five days a week. The Teachers provide a really, supportive, caring environment for the kids to learn and play. I love how there is very little turnover of staff, which means the kids can form great bonds with their Teachers. It truly does feel like a family environment, with parents, and extended family made to feel very welcome. Highly recommend!

Both of my children went to Mariposa from 10 months and 2 years right through to turning 5. We still have an association with the centre and find the staff not on only professional but caring and loving towards the children.
The teachers provide interesting learning experiences and go the extra mile to set up high interest investigations for the children.
