Welcome to Poppies Preschool continued...

We have better ratios than the Ministry of Education Requirements to allow us to deliver a quality programme for your children. Our nursery ratios are one staff member to four children, our Preschool ratios range from one staff member to four children to one staff member to seven children. Our Prepschool ratios range from one staff member to six children to one staff member to nine children. Legal government ratios are one staff to five children in the nursery and for older children two staff to twenty children. We have committed and passionate qualified teachers and have our own relieving staff to ensure consistency at all times.

This is what some of our parents say about us at Poppies:

  • "Best Preschool ever!! All four of our boys have thrived at this centre. All staff are attentive to the child's needs and parents are always informed on progress. We will miss the Poppies family after 10 years." - Megan Cozzone, Poppies St Martins

  • "We can't thank you enough for everything you've done for Katya over the last three years. Poppies has been the most fanastic, nurturing, loving, wonderful place and we know that all your input, guidance and support of our girl has helped shape her into the kind, loving, smart and funny little centre of our lives. Thank you doesn't even begin to cover it." - Amanda & Ravil Atlas, Poppies St Martins

  • "Both my children have been at Poppies since it opened. During that time they have grown, learnt and had experiences that we are both grateful for. They have loved attending and the staff have always been fabulous accommodating to their needs...We cannot thank you all enough for what you have provided for our children." - Sheree & Dan Rosewarne, Poppies Gardiners Road
