Our philosophy

Lollipops North Harbour has three separate buildings to cater for different ages and stages. Each centre has a slightly different philosophy, but they all share the same core value of respect. Our Kiwis building (0 to 2.5 years) follows the RIE approach; our Fantails building (2.5 to 3.5 years) works with aspects of the RIE approach as well as the Reggio Approach; while our Kakapos building (3.5 to 5 years) follows the Reggio approach.
