Our philosophy

Here at Lollipops Aubrey Street relationships between our tamariki, whānau, ourselves and our community are based on mutual respect and highly valued. We express manaakitanga through supporting each other to be the best we can be as we learn alongside each other. Whanaungatanga is expressed through the knowledge of knowing that we are not alone, tamariki, whānau and Kaiako support, assist and guide each other when needed. We care for our tamariki and each other and our willingness to work together to support our tamariki to learn and fly is highly valued and is expressed through the following whakatuaki.

'Me ka moemoeā au, ko au anake;
Me ka moemoeā tātou, ka taea e tātou.'
If I were to dream alone, only I would benefit. If we were to dream together, we could achieve anything.

Our hopes and dreams are to support our tamariki to grow into confident and competent young learners who are sure in their identity and can apply the skills, dispositions that they learn here at Lollipops Aubrey St throughout all areas of their lives.
