Carla King:
“We have been a part of Above and Beyond before and I have recently moved my boys to the new centre in Papamoa. We have always felt part of a family here, the staff are amazing and the new centre is beautiful. My boys love it there, they have settled so well and always look forward to going in. We are so excited to be a part of your journey😄”
