Our philosophy

Here at Lollipops Newton Road, we are committed to providing high quality care and education to our tamariki.

  • We believe each child is on a unique journey of learning. We view and respect each child as confident, competent and capable learners. Our children feel a sense of belonging and value, knowing that their voice is always welcomed and heard.
  • The cultural identity of every child and adult who walk in the centre is upheld and celebrated. We are committed to building, growing and maintaining strong relationships with children, families and local identities hence working as one community of learners.
  • Our facilitators of learning are passionate, caring and nurturing teachers. Each teacher aspires for our children to build resilience, self-awareness (Mana) and empathy. We view ourselves as researchers working alongside children to gain a sense of continuity, while keeping whanaungatanga (relationship and respect) as a core of our curriculum.
