our story

Located just behind Butterfly Creek on Uenuku Way, Auckland Airport’s Lollipops is a vibrant, happy centre where children enjoy a safe, supportive environment that caters for their holistic development. We provide a wonderful range of activities and experiences that empower children to develop strategies for active exploration, thinking and reasoning as they grow to become confident, independent learners.

Because we have a very low staff turnover and many long-term staff members, children within the centre enjoy a strong, secure bond with staff and enjoy a sense of trust and belonging.

At Auckland Airport Lollipops, we believe that children should be treated with respect and dignity as unique individuals. We acknowledge and value cultural diversity and work in partnership with parents and whanau to establish a sense of belonging and trust. We believe that the inclusion of family and the community are an integral part of each child’s positive development and will work with parents in partnership acknowledging their role as their child’s first teacher.
For children to be empowered, our educators provide opportunities for children to create and act on their ideas. We believe that in order for children to develop holistically, we must look at the child as a whole: “cognitively, socially, culturally, emotionally and spiritually,” (Te Whaariki 1996).

ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.
