ERO Report

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.

Testimonials

  • 18 months old daughter loves Lollipops. How do I know? Because she is smiling when the lift opens in the morning, because she waves and smiles to everybody we meet in the hall, because she gives high fives, because she hugs her teacher, because I see joy on her face when I arrive in the afternoon. That is why I love Lollipops, too.

  • It has been a second home for Aadya from the time she has joined the centre, initially it was very difficult for me as a mother but the love, comfort and care provided by the teachers in Taniwha room compelled me to forget all my worries...

    I have seen amazing transformation in Aadya (be it her walking, talking, social) etc, over she is growing to be a more independent girl and I am so proud to see that.

    Lastly, I would like to give special thanks to her primary care giver, Parminder who has been a source of relief for me specially in the initial days.

  • I'm a happy mum and happy to see Dovi settled in lollipops. I would definitely recommend Lollipops. All the credit goes to loving, caring affectionate teachers sharing knowledge with kids and parents

  • I first visited Lollipops St Lukes in the early stages of my pregnancy in 2011 to see what it was like before enrolling my child.

    I was welcomed into a warm, friendly and bright centre. The baby room was clean and warm and every person in the room was engaged with a child.

    As a nervous first-time parent this put me at ease straight away.

    I enrolled my son and he has attended full-time since the age of 11 months

    In every stage of his learning journey he has been lucky enough to have excellent teachers. I can say this honestly and without exception. In a few months, he leaves for Primary school and we are confident he will be very school ready. The support I have received from the teachers has also been very meaningful and I have formed some great friendships within the centre.

    My baby daughter also now attends the centre and has settled well. The Centre Director Catherine, and my daughters’ teachers in the Pariko Room have been very accommodating to us and welcome my lunchtime visits to breastfeed my baby. They even provided a chair for me to feed her in the nursery for morning drop off 😊

    The centre encourages a feeling of belonging and the atmosphere is relaxed and intellectually stimulating for the children. The teachers are kind and loving.

    The staff know my children well and speak freely and honestly if there are any issues or concerns and I know I can do the same.

    I will be very sad to leave Lollipops Educare St Luke’s when the day comes. They are a huge part of our daily lives as both my husband and I work full-time.

    I would recommend the centre to anyone who is considering placing their child in day-care.
