Our Story

Lollipops Te Rapa is a small centre but one that has a big heart. It is situated in Pukete close to the Base Te Awa and the Te Rapa industrial area.

Our feeder schools are scattered around Hamilton due to where children live. Mostly children attend Te Totara, Pukete, Te Rapa, St Peter Chanel, Hukanui primary schools as well as a few country and city schools further away.

As teachers we believe our children and their families are paramount and because of this the whakatau that sits beside our philosophy represents everything we believe in.

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.
