Lollipops Millennium has been awarded the Rito Healthy Heart for 2024-2026

The Tohu Manawa Ora | Healthy Heart Award is a free programme for early learning services, designed to help create a nourishing learning environment for tamariki.

There are three stages in the Tohu Manawa Ora | Healthy Heart Award journey: Rito, Whānau and Pā-Harakeke. Each award is made up of strands to complete with different themes.

Rito is the heart of the plant, where new beginnings start. It recognises commitment in founding a healthy eating and physical activity environment.

Whānau builds on the foundations set at Rito. It helps build and strengthen existing healthy eating and physical activity foundations at our centre.

Pā-Harakeke will weave healthy eating and physical activity practices sustainably into all aspects of our centre.

Our Philosophy

Every child is a unique individual with their own strengths, abilities and passions. At Lollipops Millennium our children feel a sense of belonging and value within their environment, secure in the knowledge that their voice is welcomed and heard.

Here are some of the things we value:

  • An environment that is inclusive and respectful, where all children and their families/whanau feel comfortable, accepted and safe in their surroundings
  • Passionate, caring and nurturing teachers that provide a collaborative and enriching learning environment
  • We endeavour to create lifelong learners who are enthusiastic and prepared for their next stages of learning
  • Strong relationships with our families/whanau
  • Strong support of a bi-cultural approach to learning including the importance of te reo Maori
  • We celebrate diversity
  • We build connections with each of our children, giving them the time, opportunities, space and freedom to learn and grow at their own pace
