Our Rooms

Lollipops Parnell is licensed for up to 60 children, including 24 under 2s. We have three separate rooms, enabling us to deliver safe, nurturing and age appropriate learning experiences for all our children.  Each room has a different routine and each is flexible to the children’s needs and those of their home. We also have a beautiful spacious outdoor area which provides many learning opportunities for children to explore.
