"Among the many daycares to choose from in Newmarket, Uptown Kids was the one we chose for our daughter.
We really appreciate the small roll as we value the intimate atmosphere of the daycare which provides a cosy and safe environment for her to play and learn. It is also nice seeing her mixing with kids of all ages.
The lovely dedicated staff are all so good with the kids. A key selection criteria was finding a place where our daughter had the benefit of staff with life experience as well as formal qualifications.
Uptown kids not only meets that brief but they show a genuine affection to the children which is clear to see each morning at drop off time"
"We enrolled our 11 month old son at Uptown Kids on the recommendation of a friend. We are very glad we did! Over the last two years we have been very impressed with the high level of care at Uptown Kids. It has a small roll, warm and very friendly staff and a big outdoor playing area to keep the kids entertained. We know our son is always safe when he is there.

"I have had all 3 of my children in Uptown Kids. The elder two have since left for school, and due to the care and education they have received they are both excelling at school, fitting in socially and doing very well academically. Our youngest loves it there. Everyday is an adventure.
"We are very appreciative of all of the care that Aronui received while at Uptown Kids – Epsom branch. We are so grateful to the teaching team for nurturing Aronui’s passions and for supporting his emotional, mental, social, and physical development. He is now well placed to launch into the next phase of his educational journey and, as parents, we know that this is in large part due to the care and support that he has received while at Uptown Kids. Thanks!
"We love Uptown Kids, the staff are amazing and the centre is always willing to listen and adapt what they do to cater for individual needs. We love that they are a small centre and care for our children like they are their own. We have two children with Uptown Kids currently and have also had another two children through the centre. Our older two children are in school and are thriving. They are achieving very well academically and also socially and Uptown Kids definitely had a part to play in this. We highly recommend this centre.

"Our three kids went to Uptown Kids in Epsom for several years until we left Auckland. The best feature of this daycare is the dedicated caring staff. Next is the comfortable, safe and relaxed environment for the kids to learn and play. Finally, the effort the staff put in to making every day special and fun. We all miss it and thoroughly recommend Uptown Kids.

"Thank you so much for the great learning experience at Uptown Kids. Indie absolutely loved all of the teachers and made so many great friends. She will miss them all so much."
"The centre is doing well at cross culture education. It respects different social backgrounds. Even though my children were the only two Chinese at the centre, the centre still celebrated the Chinese New Year, which I think is lovely. This is a great centre for kids. I would strongly recommend it to my friends."
"我有一个2岁的儿子和一个4岁的女儿，他们今年一月份进入UPTOWN KIDS CHILDCARE CENTRE。两个孩子都很喜欢这个幼儿园。在送孩子去幼儿园之前，我曾经参观过几家不同的幼儿园。最终选定这家幼儿园是因为这家幼儿园的老师对孩子很有爱心，这提供给孩子一个友好的环境。而且她们都是经验丰富的幼教。老师们很负责任，很愿意和家长交流。她们总是会第一时间让我知道孩子在幼儿园里的情况。在过去的几个月里孩子们变得更加自信和独立这让我惊喜。这个幼儿园尊重多元文化。虽然幼儿园里只有我的两个孩子是华人但是幼儿园里还是庆祝了农历新年，我觉得这是很不错的。我会很乐意推荐这家幼儿园给我的朋友们。
"We spent quite some time investigating daycares for our 3 year old daughter and 6 month old son and knew straight away we had come to the right place with Uptown Kids. The environment was very much like a big family. The kids really enjoyed it there and really connected to the teachers despite being two very different kids.
"Uptown Kids is a fantastic centre! Staff are professional and so wonderful with all the kids, making you feel comfortable and confident you have made the right decision for your little ones. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
