Our Story

Lollipops Coatesville is a place where each child is cared and educated for in a loving, nurturing environment.  Our outdoor space provides opportunities for children to explore, discover and investigate in an amazing natural environment with real grass.  We pride ourselves on being a family orientated centre where children and their whanau feel a sense of belonging and their wellbeing is fostered through relationships that are built on trust and respect.  We are guided by the principles of Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber.

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.

  • Our children love the Coatesville Learning Centre, the staff are extremely welcoming, caring, creative, happy and fun with the children.  Ella-Rose (2 years old) is most upset if we pass the centre without dropping her off.  The facility is extremely well organised and clean, the meals are tasty, balanced and healthy.

    My son Nathan loved the grass hopper soccer sessions that are also run at the centre, and the Coatesville primary school visits they ran, set his mind at rest to starting school.  We are pleased to have such a well run centre in the community


  • When it was time to return to work after the birth of our first child, I was apprehensive about choosing a child care centre. From my first visit to Coatesville Learning Centre, I was impressed by the genuine care shown by the staff and teachers. Since attending, our daughter has grown in confidence and at the end of each day she is eager to tell us about the activities she has taken part in.

    Parents are kept well informed about their children's progress and the lines of communication are always open. It's wonderful dropping a happy child off in the morning, knowing that they will be nurtured in every way. The large open playground is a huge bonus! Thank you Coatesville Learning Centre for giving our daughter a great start to her early education.
