What a great service Care-a-lot is providing with its minibus morning pick-ups
I also wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all the lovely photos and stories about Leon and the daily diaries. We always thoroughly enjoy reading them!

Evie instantly felt at home - this is testament to the loving staff and small scale of the centre
Evie instantly felt at home at Care-a-lot, and clearly thrives there despite only attending one day a
week. This is testament to the loving and engaging staff, and the small scale of the centre. We enjoy
hearing all the new songs and things she has learnt - and feel her time at Care a lot is invaluable to
her development.

We truly love the centre.

Thank you for giving both my children such a good start in their early education
Issie has really enjoyed her time with you and has really blossomed especially in the last couple of
months. Every single teacher at Care-a-lot has contributed so much to Issie's development, each in
their own way, and I'm sure she will take with her lots of fond memories.

As this is my last offspring to go through Care-a-lot, I really want to thank you for giving both my
children such a good start in their early education. But Care-a-lot has been much more than this in
that it has really been an extended family for the kids and I appreciate all the time that you and your
staff have cared for the girls.

A safe and nurturing atmosphere that has allowed Oliver's social skills to develop
Our son is a gentle, sensitive soul who finds it stressful when he is away from the extended family
environment. However, the staff have provided a safe and nurturing atmosphere that has allowed
Oliver's social skills to develop in leaps and bounds in the two years he has been at Care-a-lot.

We love to listen to Oliver tell of his adventures each day; playing, singing & learning. Seeing his
confidence develop correspondingly is delightful.

It's great how you separate mat time for the younger ones so they can build their confidence
My daughter has loved Care-a-lot since day one. Having one primary caregiverreally helped Kate
to settle in and feel safe. I also think it’s great how you have separate mat time for the younger ones
so they can fully participate and build their confidence.

I would also like to thank the team for supporting our use of cloth nappies and being so positive
and helpful during the toilet training phase.

We scouted for a well-rounded kindergarten - we are so happy we made the right decision
My husband and I would like to give our sincerest thanks for all the wonderful experiences and
learnings you've shared with Cailyn. She has progressed every day and made wonderful friendships.
She has also learned how to be independent and be more expressive with what she feels and sees.

Care-a-lot has given Cailyn proper grounding to be an outstanding (I hope!) student as she will start
soon in big school. She is all geared up!!

We will misss the community of Care-a-lot so much! It just seems like yesterday we scouted for a
well-rounded kindergarten - we are so happy that we made the right decision.

We really love how the teachers get to know every child individually
We have had 2 kids who have been lucky enough to go to Care-A-Lot and we really love how the
teachers get to know every child individually. I am constantly impressed by how they provide
unprompted anecdotes as to what your child has been up to, the amazing little things they notice in
their development, and their interests that you can follow up with at home. Such warmth and
experience.

We also enjoy coming along to the family events that Care-a-lot organises
My boy has attended Care-a-lot for the past year. He always enjoys coming and getting the
opportunity to try lots of different activities. He especially loves the big sandpit and the carpentry
table. The staff are friendly and caring and it is obvious that they love what they do.

We have also enjoyed coming along to the family events that Care-a-lot organises such as the
Matariki celebration and the Christmas concerts. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Care-a-lot to
other families.

Our boys are truly thriving in Care-a-lot's caring and supporting environment
Our two boys love going to Care-a-lot. They have formed strong bonds with the teachers, and are
truly thriving in the caring and supportive environment provided by Care-a-lot. Thank you!
