Lollipops – Wonder, Explore, Learn

Our family orientated childcare centres offer a safe and nurturing haven, where under 5’s have fun, grow and thrive. Our child-led learning environment is supported by well trained, professional teachers who guide and encourage children’s exploration of their world, using high quality resources in a natural environment. Lollipops offers a uniquely New Zealand experience that will set your child up with a lifelong love of learning.

What sets us apart:

  • Purpose built centres
  • High quality resources that support growth and development
  • Outstanding teachers who love what they do
  • Our focus on sustainability teaches children to respect and care for their environment
  • Warm, welcoming and inclusive

  • Our centres feel like an extension of your own home, with rugs on the floor, art on the walls, and plants which the children tend
  • We practice daily rituals such as picking flowers for the lunch table and lighting the lunchtime candles
  • Lollipops kids are encouraged to expand their minds and express themselves
  • We follow Ako principles, inspired by the Reggio teaching philosophy, which has the natural development of a child as its key pillar

Our philosophy

Lollipops nurtures great people to be their best.

Our children are happy, caring, respectful, independent, peaceful, purposeful souls, whose minds and bodies are ready for their next challenge.

The learning journey our children take is everything to us. We respect their abilities, their worth as human beings, and we recognise their individuality.  Respect for each other and our environment underpins everything we do at Lollipops.

We provide the tools to inspire our children. Passionate and professional teachers, well-resourced and cared-for premises, a loving community of parents and family.

We learn with purpose in an environment of peace and we value harmony, that’s how Lollipops children blossom.
