WHAT OTHERS SAY

Our Families Say...

My daughter has been attending Lilypad since she was 12 months old. She loves her Educators - every time we drop her off she gives them a big hug! Lilypad has definitely encouraged my daughter's development - especially socially. It has a lot of space for the kids to play in and they offer so many different activities & learning experiences each week.

We have had our 1.5 year old here for four months and absolutely love the care they provide. They go above and beyond to meet his needs and make his time there as enjoyable as possible. We can ring at any time and get answers on his welfare. Cannot recommend these guys highly enough, great team, great place and awesome feedback and info, 5 stars!

Today is my son's last day at Lilypad as he starts kindy. Luca went to Lilypad at 6 months old and he’s coming out as a little man who can count, spell and write his name and has great social skills! The kind of care Lilypad provides is truly priceless. I’ll never forget that most pick-up times he would refuse to go home and I would have to sit and wait! THANK YOU!
