I am so impressed with GROW ECE, both my children have attended since January and I have seen them grow in confidence and develop new passions and interests with the range of activities and interactions they receive. They love coming to GROW and have often left kicking and screaming because they want to stay longer. What I love most about GROW is that it is all about the children and Whanau, I know they always come first. I am so thankful to have such a caring group of people teaching my children.

I am so happy with this daycare. Being a first time mum you always wanna make the best decisions for your children. This is one of them, my child absolutely loves going to daycare and has settled in so quickly. The environment is fresh, new, clean and so exciting and fun for the kids. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Pop in and see the staff you won't be disappointed :)
