Leroy has enjoyed coming to Little Feet Childcare Center Mangere the past year. I am extremely happy and grateful for the care he has received. The entire staff is excellent, they are very easy to work with and talk to.
Leroy has been excited and happy coming to Childcare every morning and allowed his grandparents to leave without nagging or crying. The main goal for Leroy is to toilet train and i am sure with the help from the teachers . Leroy will accomplish his goal very soon.
Little Feet Centre provide fun and relaxed environment for kids to come everyday. I would like to say "Thank you" for all the teachers hard work.

Staff at the Center is very helpful and friendly. Its being only a month she is attending daycare. She is always happy in the morning time to go to daycare which shows she is being taken acre by lovely teachers. i like the way how teachers put in efforts to prepare them for school. center's infrastructure is really spacious and appealing.
In the short amount of time that April has been at Little Feet Childcare Center, her growth and development has been incredible. She is building relationships with the teachers and students and feels a sense of belonging as do I.
I would like say how well and how much my daughter has progressed during her time at Little Feet Childcare. Teachers are amazing and take a genuine interest in the child's progress and help to not only educate but to build their confidence. That is why my daughter is happy every morning when she comes to Center because she has the confidence to come and be with her friends. Also i love how to see all the updates on Facebook and get to see my daughter's photos. Teachers once mentioned that April is doing so well and looks like she's been there for a while even though she's only at the Center for 3 weeks and for that i am great full
I am happy to say I have seen my daughter make a lot of progress since she has been attending Little Feet Childcare and a lot of improvements and moving forward. I see that she enjoys going, she is learning a lot and also engaging with the learning and the atmosphere which I come to know that she will learn a lot more as she grows. The songs and also the programme you all provide for my daughter and the kids.
