Holiday classes

29-01-2016

"Our 13 year old daughter has been attending Joyce’s holiday art classes for the last 1 ½ years. She has always enjoyed her time there. Joyce always has a different project for them to work on so they are never doing the same thing twice. Although it is a group session she will focus individually on each child and they can all be working on quite separate projects. Joyce also takes the time to teach the children different art techniques to help develop their skills. For anyone who loves art Young at Art Downunder is a great place to attend."

Love Eastern Suburbs Preschool

31-01-2017

My daughter attended Eastern Suburbs Preschool for a short time before she began school, and my son is currently attending Kindy after going to playgroup last year. What I love about Eastern Suburbs is the calm nature of the environment. The small number of children attending, loads of space to play, and the lovely staff and families all contribute to a great space. There is a real community feel about the place with fantastic families all actively involved, happy for a chat, and ready and willing to support each other. I love that my children could get as involved (or as messy) as they wanted to be with loads of opportunity to get involved in activities that we don’t do at home.

Such a talented lady! The kids had a wonderful time and looked amazing. Great thing to do for any childs party. Totally recommend Lillybeth

Superb

05-09-2017

Lillybeth catered a large community Christmas event at the Mount Maunganui Salvation Army, she arrived with all equipment and was ready to go in a few short moments. I was busy elsewhere but had the most sublime pleasure seeing children run past with the look of pure delight in wearing one of Lillybeth's creations. Each child was treated as such precious individuals and they knew it. Lillybeth's talent and caring service was worth so much more than the actual fiancial cost. I highly recommend her.

How to avoid kids' birthday party pressure

With the rising popularity of Pinterest, today’s parents are under more pressure to create the ‘perfect’ party for their child’s birthday than previous generations of mums and dads. Sure, our parents had books of party ideas and our Grandmothers the Ladies Home Journal, but advice on how to throw a memorable child’s party has truly reached new heights with the advent of Pinterest, Google image search and niche parenting blogs.
