Our Story

At Lollipops Hazeldean we have taken great care to ensure the design of our purpose-built daycare centre in Addington near the heart of Christchurch is bright and modern. It is a warm, light and highly resourced centre that our children love to be in!

Our practices are based around Resources for infant educators and carers and reflects Pikler and Gerber practices. We are strong believers in free movement and allowing children to learn in their own time, with help from our teachers and primary care-givers. Our high teacher to child ratios and ‘Ready for School’ programme ensure our children get the attention, encouragement and quality childcare they need.

Our outdoor area is spacious and engaging, with a variety of resources for rest and play. We are lucky enough to be located close to Hagley Park where we take the children on a regular basis as part of our ‘Green Fingers’ programme to explore and learn.

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.

  • Lollipops Hazeldean has been a life saver for me and our family! I want to thank each and every one who has been apart of my sons learning while he has been at your centre. I would recommend any family who wants their child to come along to a centre where they get loads of learning, support and love! He has learnt a lot in a small space of time especially where his feelings are validated and cared for and he’s getting the opportunity to do things for himself which is important to me. The team are a gorgeous bunch of women and always have time for a quick chat xx

  • I’m so pleased that we found Lollipops Hazeldean when we were looking for a day care for Archer. Being new to Christchurch the team were so welcoming and friendly and helped us all settle into our new home and routine quickly. We loved that the children slept outside on the deck and noticed very quickly, how much healthier Archer was because of this!

    Archer adores his teachers, the time they spend with him extending on his interests has really seen him grow and continue to be challenged. We know he is happy, learning, eating better than he ever eats at home and having a great day, every day with his friends.

  • Archie loves going to Lollipops Hazledean early learning centre. From the start they made the transition smooth and seamless. Every day that I drop him off he is so excited to go and see his teachers and friends. The teachers make him feel so welcome and really put alot extra into making his day enjoyable. I cannot recommend this centre enough, and I know Archie agrees!

  • Our son went right through the Lollipops Hazeldean classes (from 6 months old and is now at school) and our daughter has done the same (and is now in the prep room).

    We would highly recommended this fantastic preschool as the teaching staff and management/admin are very friendly, skilled, and supportive, and have helped immeasurably in shaping the lives of our children.

    Also with delicious and nutritious meals provided and the ability to adjust hours to suit makes it so convenient. We never considered another preschool option, and have never changed our mind that Lollipops Hazeldean is the best place for us and our children!
