Located at 44 Church Road, Te Rapa’s Lollipops Educare centre provides quality education in an environment where children love to learn. Children aged from birth to five years thrive within a welcoming, warm, and stimulating centre rich with learning opportunities.
Separate Areas for Under and Over 2'sOur centre has been designed to meet the specific needs of children’s various developmental stages. Separate babies and toddlers areas allow children to be safely and slowly transitioned without feeling overwhelmed. Each area has a quiet sleep room and access to outdoor play.
HoursThe centre operates between 7.30am and 5.30pm each week day except public holidays.
Getting to know each otherWe have an open door policy and encourage parents/caregivers to spend time at the centre getting to know our educators and the routines that we incorporate into our programme, but for any new enquires it is advisable to make an appointment so that time can be spent with you showing you around our centre.
Your child’s learning and development milestones are documented in individual profile books which are regularly updated by our staff. These books are freely available for parents to view and share with their children and wider whanau/family.
Each outdoor play area is well resourced with a wide selection of equipment to encourage creativity, motor skills, language skills, and logical thinking.
