Appleseed is such a beautiful centre with the most caring and skilled teachers. Their teacher to child ratio is the highest I’ve ever seen. They have an amazing playground and so many activities that has kept my son stimulated, educated and most importantly having so much fun and wanting to go everyday. As a parent I couldn’t have been happier! Shelley (owner) is amazing, very hands on and open. The food Di cooks is healthy and delicious. Thank you Shelley, Neelika, Annika, Kaitlyn, Eva, Di, Karina, Niluka and Cielo. We will miss you!

“AppleSeed is a safe and welcoming environment where all the children are happy, nourished and educated. Our son thoroughly enjoys his time there, and learns so much from the caring ‘older children’ in the mixed-age environment. Every day there are creative new activities for the children, and nutritious meals, as well as lovely safe sleeping environments. The staff go above and beyond, and really get to know the children and their personalities. The children really do get a great education here, and specifically we love the multicultural education such as songs and food. The staff are fabulous at involving parents in daily life, and putting on extra activities and functions to include the parents. We searched long and hard for a suitable day care, and AppleSeed ticks all the boxes.”

Since my Daughter started AppleSeed she has made loads of new friends with the help of her caring teachers she has there to support her.

All the staff are extremely friendly and caring towards all the children and have a great teaching approach to all the kids.
My Daughter has become more independent and confident in her self. 
Her vocabulary and imagination has expanded so much in such a short amount of time already.
I can safely say that I feel extremely comfortable leaving her  in their hands because I know all her needs will be met and more.! 
AppleSeed has been an amazing help also to both myself and my daughter with our separation anxiety and we’re are both thriving from it ever since.!
They really do go above and beyond for the kids and at the end of the day that’s all we wants as parents, knowing that our little babies are safe in someone else’s hands.
I look forward to many more years to come and all they have to offer.

“We love having our little girl here. It is fun and active and she is getting the full, modern cultural melting pot start to life here. We couldn’t be happier with the staff and at bedtime when I tell her I miss her while I’m at work she often replies that she misses staff members from kindy.”

“You can be guaranteed a beaming smile from one of the teachers and that grin is infectious as every little person is having the time of their life. AppleSeed isn’t just a daycare, it is an extended family, a place where I know she is loved and adored by kids and staff alike, where she is developing into a well-rounded wee girl and most importantly, a place which she loves.”

“My first visit to AppleSeed sold me. The children welcomed my son, offered him lunch and then cleared his plate for him! I thought straight away that this is the sort of place I wanted him at. The teachers are all so wonderful and involved and keep me in the loop on a daily basis. I love the fact that it is a small day care and I love that almost every week there is either a fun day celebrating something or some new outing organised.”

“AppleSeed Educare is by far the best Early learning centre in Auckland. I have not yet come across a team of caregivers so friendly and accommodating. My daughter is so happy and is learning so well. I would recommend them to anyone!!”
