Little Scientists

Exciting News! The fortnightly cycle of Little Scientists programme start today at Lollipops Albany. The Little Scientist brings science to life with our tamariki. It is an exciting point of difference for us and has been adapted to be delivered with an ever changing set of experiments. the programme includes activities that encourage the tamariki to “think like a scientist”👩‍🔬👨‍🔬, using all 5 senses to hypothesize (educated guess) and then test to see the results. The programme is tailored to suit pre-school children, weaving all the strands, goals and learning outcomes of Te Whariki into a fun and educational experience where tamariki will discover first hand just how exciting science can be! Come to Join us!

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.


Visiting our Local Heroes

Children learn a lot by getting out into the local community, and today a visit to the Albany Fire Station gave Lollipops Albany's Chicks Room plenty to reflect on.
