She made friends very quickly and didn’t want to leave, she loved her time at Little Sparks
The enrollment process was super quick and easy to understand at Little Sparks and ever since the first moment we stepped in the door at Little Sparks Olive (3 years old) felt comfortable and safe. She made friends very quickly and didn’t want to leave, she loved her time at Little Sparks. The children get along so well with the staff, as a first time Mum “my” separation anxiety was alleviated when I saw Olive with the staff sharing laughs and cuddles. There was a great cultural awareness at Little Sparks, the facilities were clean, engaging and safe and the location was good with good parking and easy access. I am very happy with my experience with Little Sparks and it is sad to say goodbye because we had to move for work as I felt like we were leaving our family.
Tai has loved his time at Little Sparks and even though he is at school now he misses you all.
We are truly thankful for all that the staff have done for Tai and our family. The staff have been amazing providing a caring and loving learning environment. Tai has loved his time at Little Sparks and even though he is at school now he misses you all. I would highly recommend you guys to anyone. Thank you again I am really grateful for all you have done for us.
She has had an excellent time with Little Sparks, it is a great learning environment, good resources, excellent routines and structure.
Sophia still talks about the staff and the other children from Little Sparks. She has had an excellent time with Little Sparks, it is a great learning environment, good resources, excellent routines and structure. The teachers are so lovely, David and Jo still her fav’s!
I was very fortunate to be a part of the Little Sparks family and will hold the memories and teachers close to my heart.
Eden was well cared for by the team. There were no health and safety issues with her and the help and effort you all put in with helping her with her speech and language skills was very encouraging for me as a parent as we worked together as a team. This showed as her confidence grew day by day and so did her voice from being a silent child to growing in to girl who can’t stop chatting. I also must commend the team and you who worked alongside the therapist from MOE.
Your door was always open and the working environment always happy and everyone always ready to have a chat and share what was going on for the day. The one thing which was good I found that each teacher knew about Eden and where she was at and showed interest up until her last day encouraging her, boosting her confidence.
As a parent who has had two children attending Little Sparks from babies and has seen management and teachers come and go and the centre caretaking decline. It was wonderful to see the improvements made and the kids enjoying the transition and new tools they have for learning and play.
The healthy eating and good food also made a lot of difference as being one of the few child cares who offer meals was peace of mind for me and I am sure other parents as the children never went hungry and were introduced to different meals regularly.
You have a great team environment and a wonderful centre. It can only go from strength to strength. I was very fortunate to be a part of the Little Sparks family and will hold the memories and teachers close to my heart.
Little Sparks became an extended part of our family instead of just another childcare.
Little Sparks services went above and beyond for our boy Archie, the teachers we came into contact with day in and day out have a heart of gold towards not just Archie but all the children in the Pepi room. One thing I struggled with initially, was the rotation of teachers but that was due to their opening hours being so accommodating which was a positive for us. Little Sparks were great to us when we were in financial struggle and continued to support our family even outside of the childcare. Little Sparks became an extended part of our family instead of just another childcare.
Thank you for all you did for our big boy Viliami, he misses his friends at Little Sparks so much and wants to come back
Hi Little Sparks thank you for all you did for our big boy Viliami, he misses his friends at Little Sparks so much and wants to come back, haha. We are forever grateful for all you did for our boy and appreciate the effort you made in teaching him so much, he is such a smart boy active and full of energy. To all his teachers, before and now, you will always have a special part in our families lives. I will so recommend this day care to anyone for their babies. Their staff are awesome, caring and loving. Such a safe environment for our babies.
You all definitely provide a warm, safe and educational environment for our children.
Absolutely love and appreciate the service and care provided by the Little Sparks whanau/staff. They were a huge part in thepositive upbringing of my eldest daughter Tamara from the age of 2 years old up until she left for primary school at the age of 5. Because of their amazing work with Tamara she was well prepared, confident and excited to begin her new journey at ‘big’ school. My youngest child Barbara has also been attending Little Sparks since she was 4 weeks old and she is now 2 and half years old and thriving! Thank you for everything you do for my tamariki te whanau o Little Sparks. You all definitely provide a warm, safe and educational environment for our children. Mauri Ora!
Thank you Little Sparks and all the lovely teachers and staff for allowing my kids to grow and be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
Both my kids went to Little Sparks, my youngest is still enrolled and my eldest son has left to primary but visits almost every day and never wants to leave. They both love all the teachers and love the friends they have made there. It took me a while to find a daycare centre I was comfortable with and I have to say I am absolutely sure I made the right choice for them, everyone is so friendly and make you feel right at home. They are well taken care of and I feel as though all the teachers are very loving and affectionate towards all kids. Thank you Little Sparks and all the lovely teachers and staff for allowing my kids to grow and be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
Since attending Little Sparks regularly my girls have built up the confidence in being themselves
My two beautiful daughters have been attending Little Sparks since they were both a year old, it's the best decision I have made. Since attending Little Sparks regularly my girls have built up the confidence in being themselves, they have both come out of their shells and found their voices to share what they are feeling and what's on their minds. They come home singing the most beautiful songs that they have learnt during their time at Little Sparks, the teachers there are amazing. 100% I can leave there assured my child is safe and secure. My girls are usually really shy and stick to themselves but Little Sparks has allowed them to grow at their own pace with no judgements and its just a beautiful environment to be around. One of my girls has left and started big girls school, I thank Little Sparks for helping her and me get ready for such a big step. Thanks Little Sparks, you are amazing.
Best centre ever!
Our boys have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Little Sparks over the past 3 years, and we would like to thank Jo and the team for all their love and support.
We have absolutely loved seeing Jackson and Aiden grow into their own and become the boys they are today, their individual personalities have come through as their preferences and interests were identified and nurtured whilst at Little Sparks.
As parents we couldn't have felt safer dropping our kids there every morning, we both enjoyed the time we got to spend talking with the teachers each day about the activities or just catching up. To us the entire Little Sparks team has become like family and we miss you all!
Thanks for everything and for always being flexible with us we appreciate you more than you could know.
Love the Lynch Family
We appreciate everyones efforts for her to have those memorable days
Jelianne had a great time there with you all. Actually, she had the hard time moving on in her big school during the first few weeks and was keep asking me if I can send her back to Little Sparks instead. She misses her friends, even these days. She still recognizes everyone every time I show her your pictures.
We appreciate everyone's effort for her to have those memorable and enjoyable days. We like how you engaged kids in different activities.
We also love those daily pictures posted in your Facebook page that gave us the idea what activity she had in that day. Lastly, we appreciate your staff and also you for being approachable and always ready to answer any queries we have.
I applaud all the wonderful teachers at the centre
I really felt like Lucas was supported so much from all the teachers including yourself during his time at little sparks. I have seen the changes in him since his transition to primary school being able to engage side by side with other children more comfortably.
I applaud all the wonderful teachers at the centre because without all the help from everyone I don't think Lucas would have learnt so much about himself and his capabilities. Lucas has developed really good relationships with the staff and I felt all my concerns for goals for Lucas were met and I cannot thank you enough for being such a close support system for Lucas and our whanau.
When Lucas finished his time with Little Sparks, I felt confident enough knowing that Lucas had the best start in his child development and we have enjoyed our journey together.
Such a privilege to be a part of Little Sparks
I am writing to tell you how pleased and happy I am to have had the privilege for my two boys Ethan and Owen to attend at Little Sparks. You have shown my kids so much love, care and patience. You have taught my kids so much from gardening to baking and even bug hunting and most importantly how to be kind to others. You have become like family for me and my boys and we thank you for everything.
Thankful every day!
I have so much thanks to give to you. Everyday I wake up and am grateful that I never took the kids out of the centre and that they thrived the way they did. I know you have a group of teachers behind you, but you have the most amazing commitment and welcoming vibe to your centre. I will never be able to thank you enough for everything you have done, its beyond words.
One big happy family
I couldn't be happier with my son's care during his time at Little Sparks. The teachers are very welcoming and kind, they would tell me how Blake's day had been and his achievements. I always felt very involved with my son's time, whether it be through the updates from teachers to the Little Sparks Facebook page.
If I had to describe the centre in a few words, they would be one big happy family. Which made my experience so comfortable and enjoyable, as I knew Blake was getting so much love, time and care. Thank you so much to everyone at Little Sparks for the care and support you have given me and my family, and for making my son's time there so special.
A home away from home
Little Sparks has been such a big part of our family, our kids loved their time there. All teachers are very warm, approchable and welcoming. Their day is filled with great activities and learning. We loved the meals were provided taking the stress out of having to prepare lunch boxes, not to forget they were very nutritonal and yum!
Our kids went to school well prepared, confident and set up for their next learning journey. We couldnt have asked for a better start, and are thankful to all the teachers for their guidance, patience and care.
We highly recommend Little Sparks as your home away from home.
One outstanding factor about Little Sparks
We are happy that we allowed Terabynth to choose Little Sparks as his learning space. We appreciate you letting him be himself, to discover, explore, chat, play, learn and care in his own way. We will miss the food, stories, chats, building, friends, teachers, garden and more. We are grateful that we have fond memories of Little Sparks.
I think you are all doing amazing with what you do have and we loved it when the kids had something to look forward too like dress up days, Bdays, graduations, occasions and celebrations. We love Terabynth's book and glad that we can communicate with you in different forums.
One outstanding factor about little Sparks is the presence of a male teacher. Awesome! Because males bring so many different tools and abilities to the learning environment than females.
