I have nothing but praises for this preschool. I have two boys and naturally, as we moved around Auckland city, we also had the exposure to various Preschools and Day Cares in the areas we have lived in (Henderson, Mt Wellington, One Tree Hill etc). This by far is the best Preschool- it's such a shame that I've only just discovered this preschool for my second child. The manager, Juliette Pertab, is highly skilled and knowledge. She has a lovely team and they are all clearly passionate about what they do. They go over and beyond their job descriptions. I have seen them genuinely care of the children in their care. There was one time they even shampoo'd yogurt out of my son's hair! Just one of the many examples. Great team, great facilities and great teaching program. Highly recommended.
