I'm a happy mum and happy to see Dovi settled in Lollipops. I would definitely recommend Lollipops. All the credit goes to loving, caring affectionate teachers sharing knowledge with kids and parents

Pooja Bajaj

18 months old daughter loves Lollipops. How do I know? Because she is smiling when the lift opens in the morning, because she waves and smiles to everybody we meet in the hall, because she gives high fives, because she hugs her teacher, because I see joy on her face when I arrive in the afternoon. That is why I love Lollipops, too.  


It has been a second home for Aadya from the time she has joined the centre, initially it was very difficult for me as a mother but the love, comfort and care provided by the teachers in Taniwha room compelled me to forget all my worries. I have seen amazing transformation in Aadya (be it her walking, talking, social) etc, over she is growing to be a more independent girl and I am so proud to see that. Lastly, I would like to give special thanks to her primary care giver, who has been a source of relief for me specially in the initial days.

The teachers are really amazing, and my daughter has learned a lot under their guidance. They have taught my daughter how to talk, how to behave and how to do things independently. Thank you very much for having such a great team who motivates each and every child to do their best.

Parth Delawala

The teachers are so friendly and caring. They treat our babies and us parents like we are family. The amount of love and affection they show towards the children is amazing. The progress I have seen my child develop from day 1 is fantastic and just gets better each time. The promotion of healthy food eating, the culture days and event celebration is awesome with all the interaction they have with the children. I trust the staff with my child and already see the growth and development. It's very rewarding to watch.

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.
