Great, friendly educators. Caring environment and I trust the educators to keep my kids safe, well fed and well looked after. The teachers always listen to and act on my requests, and are always happy to chat and fill me in on how the kids day has been. I’m also so happy with the good staff retention, size of the baby room, friendly atmosphere and interesting toys/equipment.


Lollipops Tauranga is conveniently located for my family and the staff are really nice. My child loves the teachers and has made lots of good friends.

What's On

COVID 19 Update - Fog Misting Sanitation Tga

With the threat of COVID 19 back on our doorsteps, Lollipops Papamoa is taking the steps to make sure our environment is safe and properly sanitized from potential risk by getting in a team to fog mist our centre.


Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.


Multigenerational Magic

Every Friday, a group of preschoolers from Lollipops Tauranga catch the bus to Bob Owens Retirement Village to join the residents in their daily fitness session.
