Evolve named NZ’s Most Trusted Kindergarten Centre Operator

Evolve Education Group has been named New Zealand’s Most Trusted Kindergarten Centre Operator in the 2019 Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands awards.

Results were officially announced yesterday during a special awards ceremony at Okahu on Auckland’s Tamaki Drive. The win is considered to be the ultimate seal of approval, as 100 percent of votes are made by consumers.

Evolve CEO Rosanne Graham said the accolade was excellent recognition of the hard work the organisation is doing to make a positive difference in New Zealand’s ECE sector.

“We are delighted that New Zealand parents have given us their greatest vote of confidence by naming us their most trusted early learning brand,” she said.

“We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality early childhood education so that every child can fulfil their potential.  We are constantly striving to understand the needs and aspirations of our children and families, and to exceed their expectations. It means a lot to have the efforts of our teachers recognised and celebrated in this way.”

Evolve Education Group operates 128 centres across New Zealand, with highly regarded brands including Active Explorers, Lollipops, Pascals, Learning Adventures, Little Wonders, Little Lights and Little Earth Montessori.

The Trusted Brands award further cements the Group’s reputation as a leader in New Zealand’s early learning sector. According to Reader’s Digest, Trusted Brands awardees are considered to be reliable, full of integrity, affordable and high quality. They are the “right choice” for an overwhelming number of consumers, stay true to their promises and hold fast to their core principles. This year the well-known awards shone a light on 68 categories of products and services across a broad range of industries. Data was collected by leading research company Catalyst Research who surveyed 1400 adults nationwide.
