Huge support to all you Pascals teachers and staff. You show up every day with more patience than most of us will ever have: to wipe another nose, tie another shoe, to see beyond behaviour to what’s really going on, to encourage, to set appropriate boundaries – oh and to teach all at the same time to our world’s most important resources. Thankyou!
Lots of fun, learning opportunities, a very caring community in great facilities! We definitely recommend Pascal's St John's. Our son started with Pascal's when he was 8 month-old, he is 3 now and we are very happy about the creativity, patience and kindness of the lovely and experienced teachers who looks after him and accompany him in his learning until he is ready for school. We also love all the celebrations that the team organise all year long which are great opportunities to get to know other parents, chat with the team, see how comfortable my son is around them... There is such a nice family feeling about the centre, the Centre Manager Ellie is so approachable and it is a pleasure to see her and our daughter at reception at drop-off and pick-up!
When we moved to New Zealand, visiting daycare centers was completely overwhelming. Nothing seemed to meet my expectations until we arrived at the gates of Pascals. From the moment I stepped in and was met by the friendly manager (completely unannounced I might add) I knew my children would be happy here. Absolutely every single member of staff is amazing. The love that they have shown to all three of my children over the years has been incredible. The staff are the cream of the crop! So professional, caring and supportive of both my children and our family. We have made lifelong friends through the centre and Pascals will always hold a special place in all our hearts. Pascals made us fee at home in New Zealand. They embrace everything that living in New Zealand is about and for that I will be truly grateful.
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.
There are so many things I love about Pascals Herne Bay Kindy. It is relatively small, so it has more of a family feel. The teachers offer a wide variety of super fun messy play. There are lots of great events and outings that the kids enjoy. They also provide an outstanding transition to school program. There is always plenty of easy parking outside and it is directly opposite Bayfield School, so extremely convenient.
My son has been with Pascals for 3 years and in that time has been fortunate to have consistent teachers who have been genuinely caring and competent at their roles. He was able to form secure relationships because of this which for us was the most important aspect of his care.

Friendly staff, welcoming rooms and outdoor area and my son loves going there. Highly recommend!
Lovely centre, children seen happy and content, great staff in my child's room but I haven't had a chance to get to know all staff across the centre or visit all rooms. My child has settled into the centre with ease and seems happy when being dropped off and picked up.
Staff are amazing, centre manager always willing to help where she can and it’s a happy positive environment!
Awesome staff/carers. So reassuring knowing they treat the children with respect and the philosophy that each child is different.
