Located at 3 Patten Street, Christchurch’s Lollipops centre provides parents with the peace of mind that their children will be cared for in a welcoming environment with enthusiastic teachers that love what they do. With a family-oriented atmosphere, children feel nurtured and supported in a centre that has been designed as a home away from home for under-fives.
The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.
Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.You can read our centre’s ERO review here.

Both our children attend Lollipops on Patten Street, and we are very grateful for the warm, welcoming, environment the staff create every morning as my children enter through their door.
The staff in the Rimu and Kowhai room are exceptional. They truly inspire my children’s learning and development. The staff are always mindful about capturing major milestones and ensure that myself and the rest of my family (at home and abroad) never miss out on being a part of these milestones. I love how the staff make the effort to record my children’s learning via online through storypark. The Staff have always provided a high standard of learning, care, and safety. The Staff at Patten Street provide a home away from home. It takes more than one person to raise a child – it takes a community, and the staff play a major role in my children’s community.
Lollipops is an inviting and inclusive community of teachers, children and whanau, where all children are valued as individuals and treated as such. We have loved the strong home/school connection where the teachers have worked with us to provide consistent care and gone above and beyond with creative solutions to meet the needs and goals of our son.
