Lollipops Millennium has four separate rooms, enabling us to deliver safe, nurturing and age appropriate learning experiences for all our children.
Specially designed for our children from birth to 18 months, we follow the child ‘s routine at home and offer a high quality care and education for children.
Children stay in our Tuis room from 18 months of age until they are approximately 2 years 8 months or 3 years old. They have a large area to explore and the freedom to choose what they want to do. It is a mixed age group so there are lots of opportunities for tiena tuakana relationships.
Our Kiwis room caters for children aged 2.8/3 years to 4 years of age. This is the age
when children listen as well as ask so many questions. Our teachers help research these questions and offer a quality education to the children.
This is where our 4 to 5 year olds prepare for the next phase of their learning journey - school. We have a great transition to school programme and liaise with two local schools (Oranga Primary and St Mary’s Catholic School) taking children there for visits. A lot of our focus in this room is on building social competence and self-help skills.
