Our Story

Takapuna’s Lollipops centre was originally a church house for the Takapuna Methodist Church. The centre has been lovingly renovated and expanded into the beautiful, inviting childcare centre that it is today. Located at 1 Tennyson Ave, Takapuna’s Lollipops centre provides a positive, warm, and welcoming environment where children are nurtured and valued for their individual learning strengths and talents.

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.
