Our Story

Lollipops Ruapehu Drive has been operating since September 2008. Our positive reputation is generated by our families, past and present. Our location if highly valued by our families/whānau who work in the New Zealand Defence Force (Linton Army Camp), Massey University and live in the surrounding areas. We nurture children to be their best, to be respectful,  environmentally attuned, resilient and encourage their bodies to unfold naturally. We  have a strong commitment to supporting families,  building good relationships and the centre has a family orientated vibe to it. We value children’s explorative natures and embrace what the local community has to offer through providing swimming lessons, weekly bush walks, van trips into our community, regular visits to Summerset Retirement Village and Fun Football. Our teaching team are qualified experienced and diverse in skills which contributes to our child-led, natural environment-based learning where children learn through experiences in tune with nature and in partnership with their teachers.  Our building is purpose built for learning in the early years.  We pride ourselves in our well organised and presented facilities.
