Testimonials and Reviews

We absolutely LOVE Sunbeams! Our son Samuel has been attending for almost one year now, and he loves Sunbeams!
I viewed five other daycares and kindy’s (none felt quite and right, and a couple I was like ‘ruuuuun!’), before finally listening to my sister and visiting Sunbeams. Walking in the front door, it just felt like home. Go and visit, i’m sure you will feel it too! 🙂
The Teachers are absolutely wonderful, creating amazing spaces and activities for the kids to play each day. It feels really good to drop Samuel off knowing he is going to not only be learning through play, but also forming friendships and be in a really positive environment while he is there, which is so, so important.
He is absolutely thriving at Sunbeams, and we are so grateful for their love and support of our son and family. Our daughter will turn 2yo in August, and she is looking forward to attending Sunbeams too, if our kindy drop offs are anything to go by!
Much love,
The Indrisie Family xo

This place is incredible! A must see for parents of 2-5yr olds looking for a kindy! Sunbeams has it all- A garden full of curiousities and quirks that will capture the imagination of any toddler, plenty of outdoor space with both shade and shelter for the unpredictable Auckland weather including a playground, large sandpit, water play station, tool shed and building area, fruit trees and vege garden, rabbit hutch with rabbits arriving next week. and a wonderful dining space for the children on the patio where we enjoyed Helens yummy homemade morning tea! The inside is phenomenal, light, spacious, while filled with different areas and spaces for learning and exploring- science area, arts and crafts, books, role play, a school room, displays of the children enjoying fun activities, height appropriate facilities for toddlers, – there is so much to this place it must be viewed! The children were enaged in busy activities at times, with bubbles and ballons and building car tracks, and also independantly busy with their own exporations of ‘digging to china’ in the sandpit, and swinging on the monkey bars on the playground. I love the journals for each toddler and the photo displays of each childs family – you get the sense they mean what they say when they promote themselves as a kindergarten that values the important world of each child and those in it! Absolutely lovely, I didnt want to leave!!! Thanks for having us! See you when my daughter turns 2!!

We adore Sunbeams! It’s a truly unique and encouraging learning environment where the kids’ individual needs and interests come first. My daughter feels so at home here that she’s actually asked to “sleep over” this week! Could not recommended it highly enough.

Absolutely fantastic kindergarten – my daughter was here for just over 2 years leading up to starting school. Genevieve has an amazing bunch of teachers, my daughter loved them all. Genevieve ensures a great experience for both the children and their parents, nothing ever a problem, so accommodating and organised and always so caring and kind. Can’t rave more highly about our experience at Sunbeams.

I could not recommend sunbeams highly enough, we have been in the sunbeams community for two years and my children have greatly benefited from the nurturing and caring teachers, as well as interesting, creative and personalised activities. With my eldest about to start school I feel he has been set up and prepared through sunbeams. I so appreciate that my kids have been able to have this start to their education.

Sunbeams is the most amazing Kindergarten! Our daughter has recently completed 2.5 years there and her development in that time has been incredible. The love and care that Genevieve and her team provide for the children is all you could wish for. It is simply a beautiful place. A gorgeous villa developed specifically for the kindergarten with unique learning spaces (science, arts, woodwork, reading etc) and an amazing outdoor area with a playground, sandpit and entertainment area. They make the children feel so special with birthday celebrations and beautiful ‘graduation’ ceremonies for each individual child (when they are ready to head off to school). From start to finish of your child’s time at Sunbeams, a beautifully documented and illustrated diary is provided of activities, events and your child’s development. If you are looking for a kindergarten for your child please go and have a look at Sunbeams. Highly highly recommended! We will miss Genevieve and her team!! Thank you so much Genevieve for the time, attention and love you have given our beautiful daughter. You have given her the perfect start for beginning her new school!

Sunbeams has made such a positive impact on our life. Simple things like tidying up, respecting property & following instructions have become second nature to our 3 yr old. She sings her way through chores now and I’m loving seeing the respect she has for all the fabulous teachers.
