Our philosophy

At Airport Lollipops our teaching team strives to be welcoming, knowledgeable, professional and consistent.

We believe in the importance of role modelling and are always mindful that our tamariki are learning from our everyday interactions.

We endeavour to implement an environment that is inclusive, flexible, sustainable, caring and filled with trust and aroha.

We believe it is important for our tamariki to be active risk takers in hope of developing their self-confidence in trying something new.

For all our tamariki the values of whakawhanaungatanga will be upheld ensuring every child will have the right to be respected within the full context of their culture, community and family. We also ensure our tamariki understand the importance of giving and making a difference within their community.
