Thank you so much for all your hard efforts to get Jodie a full time place with you. We do appreciate that so much. Before I end my letter, I have to say that you and your centre are the best - it is fact - it is true and it is not a compliment.
Pascals St Johns is always making positive changes that don't go unnoticed. The team at Pascals St Johns certainly have the children's learning and safety at heart.
We feel 100% supported that our daughter is getting the best education and care. Rianna loves coming to daycare. She sometimes cries in the weekend because she wants to come to daycare. We know you are doing your best to find another awesome teacher for the Pukeko Room, good luck with that process. I am sure your wonderful centre will attract that person. Thank you for everything you all do for our children. They are in the best hands.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and care of Conor, you are outstanding!!! We have really appreciated your flexibility, patience and “just going with the flow” ....Hope the new little people coming through will keep you on toes and best wishes to you all in your continuing excellent work.

Wanted to share your success story. Anne went into school just three weeks ago and has already been recognised as an independent, dedicated student. Thanks for the preparation work Hummingbirds did with her.
I am sure it takes a lot of time to do the monthly learning stories and magic moments but IT IS WORTH IT!!! I frequently open up ours and look at them and show relatives and we look at them as a family. You probably don't get this feedback because, as we all are, too busy to flick an email, hence mine being an essay now! But in chatting with parents the learning stories are really appreciated, as is the frequent communication with parents through emails updating us on what is going on around the place.
Overall I just want to say thank you for all the amazing things you are doing. It is more than a job and your wonderful teachers are putting their hearts and souls into our special treasures that we trust to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Returning to work when your first child is 4 months old is not an easy thing to do. Hummingbirds however made the transition so easy for us. Being busy working parents, we need to be able to rely on the childcare centre that our daughter attends. Saying that we can rely on Hummingbirds is an understatement. The communication is outstanding and we feel a very big part of the Hummingbirds family. We truly are very lucky to have Hannah attending such a fabulous centre, you make it very easy for us to feel relaxed about her care and environment.
"Why didn't you find it earlier"
My son is now at school but we were fortunate enough to spend 6 months at Hummingbirds after another centre let us down.
On the weekend Angus found his portfolio from Hummingbirds and burst into tears saying "Mummy, why didn't you find Hummingbirds earlier"
And I agree, I wish I had found it earlier. The facilities, the staff, the age appropriate rooms and activities all came together to give my son the best possible care and a head start for school.
When working full time it is a relief to know that your kids are in a caring, stimulating environment in which he probably had more fun than if he was at home.
Thank you for accommodating us during a tough time and leaving my son with such fond memories.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the teachers especially the Pukeko and Kiwi Teams for their dedication, passion and drive that they give our children. The advice, support and encouragement that the team also give to us as parents is invaluable.
My son has been in your center for nearly 9 months. I would like to say thanks to you and the teachers in his room.
I feel the center is best we have ever been and the staffs are very caring and supportive. the manger and staffs have shown a great commitment and passion in communicating with parents and creating a caring environment for children. Since the first day I visited the center, Monique has been very helpful to answer my questions and made me feel really welcomed. Nathan has developed the strong and close relationships with teachers especially Kate, Sarah, and other teachers. I really appreciate all you and the teachers have done to help my son quickly settled in the center.
It is sad to leave the center due to the change in the family and we have to move him to the new preschool and it will save me time to pick up and send kids to school. however the experience in you center is so memorable and we definitely will miss you and the teachers in you center.
Our 2 girls have attended Pascals St Johns since they were 2. With caring teachers, a great curriculum and an excellent centre manager in Ellie, they have thrived during their time here. Centre communication is great and we love getting their stories on Storypark. The girls love their teachers and enjoy the wide range of activities on offer. We looked at many centres and the Pascals facilities are second to none. Having separate areas for different age ranges is a great idea. We would recommend Pascals St Johns without hesitation.

My daughter and my son both went to Pascals. In the initial stage, I have selected and visited more than 10 centres around Meadowbank area and finally chosen Pascals. The Centre Manager and all the teachers are amazing! My son has been to Kiwi Room, and now is currently at Tui Room; my daughter has been to Pukeko Room and have recently graduated from Fantail Room, therefore, I have experienced all rooms and teachers in Pascals and I must be honest that all the teachers are loving and caring to the children. My daughter always talk about what happens during the day at Pascals and always can't wait to share her news in the next day with her friends and teachers! And my little man is now so familiar with his environment that he will eat so well and sleep nearly two hours in Tui Room.
I have personally referred many of my friends' children to Pascals and they have also referred Pascals to their family and friends once they children joined Pascals.
Do come for a visit and you will see yourself how amazing the centre is!
