Located at 27 Ossian St Ahuriri, Lollipops Educare Napier offers a nurturing, learning-rich environment where children develop as life-long learners through their play. Purpose-built, Lollipops Educare Napier is a brand new, state-of-the-centre which has been resourced with the very latest equipment. Children from birth to five years old are welcomed into a child-focused environment where they are respected and cherished.
Separate Under and Over Two's AreasThe centre offers three separate areas:
HoursThe centre operates between 7.30am and 5.30pm each week day except public holidays. We are open over the Christmas holiday season excluding statutory 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.
Outdoor PlayThree outdoor areas are well resourced with a wide selection of equipment to encourage creativity, fine and gross motor skills, language skills, and logical thinking.
Nutritious MealsMorning and afternoon teas and lunches are nutritionally balanced – as well as being delicious of course! We provide plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to ensure that each meal is meeting the needs of busy young children.
StaffSelecting the best staff possible is not a task we take lightly. Every staff member has been selected for their valuable experience and willingness to develop our centre into a nurturing and exciting centre where children can develop to their best potential. All of our staff are either fully qualified or in current early childhood education training. Every member of staff individually contributes to a rich and diverse learning experience for the children. Our staff are supported with ongoing training opportunities and professional development.
