Our philosophy

From the moment you walk through the door, Lollipops Rolleston will make you feel welcome with our caring staff, safe environment and relaxed atmosphere. We believe in creating an environment and culture that supports our youngest leaders with lifelong skills to advance them into the 21st century. Play-based learning is at the heart of our programme as we support each child on their own unique learning journey. In consultation and collaboration with parents, we recognise, plan for and document each child’s individual learning pathway.  Allowing tamariki to wonder, explore and learn in a rich and natural meaningful context, means we are hands-on and interactive in our learning experiences.

Our collective values and attributes of Empathy, Respect, Perseverance, Independence and Confidence, are what we believe to be important foundations for a seamless journey into our tamariki’s next stage of learning.
