About Us


“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.”

“We feel so lucky to have our son going to AppleSeed. The owners, Mike and Monique are fabulous people and they have created such a warm, inclusive family environment. My son loves going and the teachers really are fantastic. They always go above and beyond for all of us. I always recommend AppleSeed to my friends.”

“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!!

“Monique and Mike have a fabulous centre that my daughter loves attending and we have no hesitation about sending our second daughter too shortly. It’s a great family environment with teachers dedicated to making sure the children are happy, safe and encouraged in their learning environment. Awesome, healthy food is provided daily, interesting activities are set up for the kids, and our daughter always comes home full of stories about her day with her best friends.”
