"Why didn't you find it earlier"
My son is now at school but we were fortunate enough to spend 6 months at Pascals St Johns after another centre let us down. On the weekend Angus found his portfolio from Pascals St Johns and burst into tears saying "Mummy, why didn't you find Pascals 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.
The staff are amazing and very caring and the children are well looked after!
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.

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. 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!!!
Tia and the team at Pascals Kindy Herne Bay are amazing and I could not recommend them highly enough. This kindy has always had wonderful carers but since Tia came on board as Centre Manager she has really turned the place around with excursions, educational activities, regular communication, flexibility and created a relaxed friendly atmosphere. My youngest son is enjoying excursions including the Auckland Museum and the Sky Tower as well as fun centre-based activities such as cupcake decorating and Zumba and he loves it all. I only wish my eldest son could have experienced Pascals Kindy under Tia's management. I very much recommend this centre to anyone searching for an exciting, inclusive, fun and educational kindy for their children.
Pascals Albany is a fun, engaging centre that provides top preschool education, readying each child for their start at school. Both of my children have attended the centre since they were 9 months old. My daughter is about to turn 5 and whilst she is excited to start school, she is very sad to be leaving her preschool family. The people, activities, learnings and general environment are amazing. I strongly believe my children have gained much more from being at Pascals Albany and have grown to be confident, capable children. When I go to pick my daughter up she tells me I’m too early and she wants to stay. Even my son who is now at school enjoys returning and engaging with the teachers that he had when he was there. The teachers give their all and ensure each child is treated as an individual – it really does feel like a big extended family.
The Pascal Kindy teaching and support staff are amazing! Since our daughter started until now, they have provided our daughter with the most wonderful preparation for school. The love and care, to go with the education, creativity and inspiration has given our daughter the confidence and skills to excel academically and socially. Thanks to the Manager Tia and all the teachers. They are amazing !!! 😉

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.

Our family's experience at Pascals Albany has been overwhelmingly positive. I was recommended the centre by family friends with children of a similar age who attended the centre. We have three children who currently attend Pascals Albany. Our eldest daughter started in the nursery when she was nine months old and our second two children (twins) have attended since 10 months old.
Some of the things that make Pascals Albany such a wonderful place are: great communication from the Teachers about how your child's day has been (both written and verbal), the quality and obvious warmth of the relationships between the teachers and children, the quality of the physical environment and resources, the culture of the centre (encouraging respectfulness and care) and the stability of the staff members.
I am impressed with the ever evolving outdoor environment. The teachers are clearly motivated and engaged in their roles and are constantly beautifying and improving the gardens and outdoor play environment.
I truly feel that the Teachers at Pascals Albany are an extension of our family and I don't hesitate to talk to them about any concerns that I have about my children as I feel that together we work together and find solutions to whatever is happening for them. There is real consistency between the home and centre environment.
I would unreservedly recommend Pascals Albany to parents looking for an exceptionally high quality early childhood centre for their children.
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.
