Lollipops Green Bay has three separate rooms, enabling us to deliver safe, nurturing and age appropriate learning experiences for all our children.
Our Koru Room caters for our smallest people with a capacity for up to 20 under 2s. We have a large outdoor area just for this age and a very special sleep room that was built around our beautiful tree. Ashley is our wonderful chef extraordinaire (she is a qualified chef) for this age group and cooks a variety of delicious wholesome food.
Kowhai Room is our next age group for children aged 2 to 3.5 years. Our focus in this age group is on building social competency and increasing children’s confidence around independence whilst maintaining a high level of emotional support. Kowhai Room shares a large natural outdoor space with Pohutukawa Room. There are connecting decks and doors enabling our children to have the benefit of experiencing tuakana/teina relationships with our older tamariki.
Our Pohutukawa Room is for children aged 3.5 to 6 years of age. In this room we are again building on concepts of social capability, empathy, contribution, friendship and an increasing level of independence and responsibility for their own wellbeing and that of others.
In both our Kowhai and Pohutukawa Room we have a lunchbox system where parents provide their children’s food with guidelines provided around healthy options, as well as plenty of ideas and support if needed.
All our age groups are approximate, as we look at the holistic development and readiness of each individual before transitioning between rooms. This is done over an extended period of time with plenty of support, love and communication to ensure everyone is comfortable and confident with the change.
