What our families say...
"Our son Tom had the most amazing few years at D&D. When he first started he was 3 years and 3 months, and he had only just said his first word due to his speech delays. Over the months and years he grew in confidence and in his talking ability, so much so you would never know he had a delay, and I believe the close knit caring community of teachers and families really enabled Tom to feel comfortable and confident to shine and grow in all his abilities. We are forever indebted to D&D for helping our little boy grow into the confident & social boy he is now; his transition to school was so easy and not at all daunting. The D&D teachers deserve the world - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and will miss you tremendously, but promise to always stop and say hello."
"Dandelions and Dragonflies Childcare is fantastic and my son is very happy here. Not only is the centre well equipped with an awesome indoor/outdoor play area with plenty of resources, the children are always engaged in a huge variety of activities. The teachers are brilliant and take time with the children as well as constantly contributing to their learning and development. Communication to parents is of a high level. I would highly recommend Dandelions and Dragonflies Childcare to other parents."
"We love it so much! The space is nice and open inside making it feel light and inviting, the playground and outdoor area is soo big and full of adventures and activities. The staff are incredible, so supportive and kind! They feel like they are on that parenting journey every step of the way, they share genuine excitement when our tamariki reaches new milestones! The transition to the Onewhero Area school was a big tick for us, as the visits/inclusion and familiarity with the school will make a huge difference in the transition there later on for our boy! And for our sons egg and nut allergies they are extremely careful and thorough and making him feel included in kai time as well as feeling safe! Harper has come a long way and even showing signs of big improvement in his confidence and eating and trying new things!
We love it here and all the staff! Looking forward to seeing how our son grows over the next couple years!"
"Am so happy to have found such a lovely team to care for my little fella…such a wonderful space for him to learn, socialise and play with others. He asks to go there every day…couldn’t rate Dandelion’s and dragonflies highly enough in their care for our tamariki."
"We swapped over our son to Dandelions and Dragonflies at the start of the year and have never looked back! He has grown to be so much more confident in the short time he has been there. It's purely down to the amazing, kind, caring and friendly staff that make him feel so comfortable and happy 😊 can't recommend them enough!"
"A wonderful daycare centre with kind, friendly and caring staff. An awesome space for the young ones with plenty to engage their wee minds and encourage play. Nutritious food provided too which our preschooler really enjoys. We’re thrilled with the level of care and environment at Dandelions and Dragonflies."
