Here at Lollipops Orewa we strive to provide a loving and homely environment for children aged 0-5 years. Our purpose built childcare centre has two rooms, our Nursery caters for infants and toddlers while our Preschool caters for children from 2 years, and each environment is inspired by the natural world and our beautiful coastal location.

Our goal is to ensure each child's social, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being is nurtured as they embark on their learning journey. We view each child as the unique and amazing being they are and aim to support them in becoming curious, open-minded, confident explorers with a love of learning.

Our staff at Lollipops Orewa are a friendly, caring group of educators with each individual bringing their own unique experiences to the team, creating a fabulously diverse team of dedicated educators. Our teaching team strongly believes that children learn and develop best in an environment where they feel safe, secure and comfortable with people around them so strive to create a warm, homely environment where all are welcome. We place high value on loving, reciprocal relationships with children and their parents/whanau who are encouraged to be actively involved alongside us in their learning journey as they are the most influential aspect of their child's life.

Our teachers provide a programme that is inspired by the children's interests and caters to both group and individual needs. New Zealand's National Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whariki, underpins all of what we do as educators and guides our programme. We endeavour to provide experiences that allow children the time to make their own discoveries, to extend on and revisit pervious learning, learn about and value a variety of cultures as well as opportunities to be out in our local community.
