Here at Lollipops Millennium Ellerslie our image of a child is that each is a unique individual with their own strengths, abilities and passions. We view each as confident, competent and capable learners who we will support in building relationships with their peers and the teachers, as well as their passion for learning, exploring and discovering.
The teachers act as facilitators to create lifelong learners. We believe in creating strong whanau relationships. Our ongoing respect and commitment to the Tiriti O Waitangi is part of our strong support of a bicultural approach to learning. We celebrate the cultural diversity in our community and value the connections we build with each of our children.
We also have a playball session for the children each week. The parents decide if they want their children to be enrolled in this program.
Our closest marae is located in One Tree Hill.
The centre has a lot of local schools in the vicinity. However, since most of our parents are from the local businesses the children go to the schools of their local address.
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.You can read our centre’s ERO review here.

Its really difficult to say Good Bye but I want to take this opportunity to thank Lollipop Millennium center & Pukeko teachers for loving and caring for Asmi for nearly 2 and half years.
There is not a single thing that I can say "could have been better" when it comes to your center - Everything is just Perfect !! I have not seen such a kind, creative and informative teachers anywhere.
The great cultural mix you have is a plus for social growth of the kids and the school readiness program that you run has made Parent's life really easy. It is because of that, Asmi is all ready, confident and excited on starting her school.
Thank you very much for all the love and attention you provided to Asmi.
We will dearly miss you all.

To all amazing teachers at Lollipops- I would like to thank you all for looking after Natalya since she was 7 months old. You guys did such a great job guiding and teaching her over the years. She achieved a lot already and started school this week and I truly believe that you helped her build confidence and passion for learning and people and life. I could not imagine her spending the last four years in another place. This centre is by far one of the best ones. Thank you once again
