Our Story

Lollipops Swanson is a Reggio inspired centre with a warm, family-orientated environment, committed to providing the very best quality care and education for your child. Excellent staff ratios and professional, passionate teachers ensure children are provided with enticing opportunities to learn, play and have fun in a natural setting. 

Each age group has its own outdoor play area designed so that children can enjoy safe, fun activities that activate their imaginations and inspire discovery and learning.

We believe that children learn through play and encourage them to be inspired by nature, using natural resources and promoting sustainability. We have an open door policy and encourage parents/caregivers to spend time at the centre getting to know our educators and the routines that we incorporate into our programme, but for any new enquires it is advisable to make an appointment so that time can be spent with you showing you around our centre.

Our motto is to respect yourself, others and the environment and to build strong, reciprocal relationships with parents/whanau and the community.

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.
