Located at 5 Paerata Rd, Pukekohe’s Lollipops centre has been architecturally designed and built to provide a bright, spacious learning environment where children aged from three months to five years have everything they need to learn. Here at Lollipops we believe that all children deserve love, attention and nurturing. We believe that a safe environment allows children to explore, grow and we also believe that children need to have fun. We recognize that parents have a difficult schedule therefore we support them the best we can.
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.

It was such a tremendous feeling dropping our little girl off at a safe and caring environment. Thank you all so much for what you have done for Gabby and us for the last 4.5 years. Thank you so much.

The ladies at Lollipops care for my children as though they are their own. When I bring my children in every day I go away knowing they are being cared for in a loving and kind environment .My children are always happy and are eager to tell me about their day and what they have learnt. As parents we have also met life long friends with other mums, dads and staff.
We have enrolled our daughter Aroha in Lollipops since she was 1 year old. We have examined approximately 4-5 day care centres in Pukekohe but we finally choose Lollipops as we heard from our friends that the staff here are really welcoming nature and experienced. When we sat the appointment and went there we received a very pleasant welcome from the director, Abashia and her staff. She is very kind, understanding, experienced and professional. She answered all of our questions and assured us that our baby would do great and we could call her anytime to check how she is doing.
After the enrolment, for a few weeks it was uneasy and daunting for me to leaving Aroha but was rest assured that my baby was in the best capable care. I truly appreciated the effort they all made to settle her in the first few weeks and I noticed whenever I went to pick her up I always seen her cuddled and snuggled with one of the teachers,
Since then Aroha has grown confidence. She made a good connection with her teachers. One of the key tools which helped us watch Aroha progressing was the regular updates on Story park. We are really happy with her development and the skills she has developed from the past 1 and a half years. We are proud that we have made a good decision by enrolling Aroha in Lollipops.
I would happily recommend Lollipops to anyone who is looking for a safe , nurturing and friendly environment for their kids.

Thank you Lollipops, Korbin was very shy and use to take a while to start new ventures, since starting with Pukekohe lollipops Korbin's confidence has grown so much. Korbin loves to learn and create, and was given the opportunity to do both at your centre. Thank you all for loving our son, and supporting him with his development. Korbin is loving school and I believe this has a lot to do with the preschool work the Tui class provides. I'm glad that Ella will have the same opportunity
Thank you Ladies xx
We would like to express a HUGE thank you for all your hard work. We cannot tell you enough just how grateful and happy we were to leave Rares in your care. We know every first time parent would probably feel the same but you are such an amazing team of teachers and it shows.
