Our philosophy

At Lollipops Waikato Hospital we believe in creating a warm, rich and welcoming environment for all who come through our doors.

We believe in offering quality care and education through building respectful, reciprocal relationships with our children and their families/whanau.

We believe in providing an environment that is stimulating and challenging regardless of age and where children are encouraged to make their own choices and decisions.

We acknowledge and support our commitment to Te O Waitangi by respecting all children’s cultural identity, heritage and language.

We are a team of dedicated, passionate professional teachers who are open, friendly, fun and exciting people. This is a culture we pass onto our children and their whanau.

Our motto is Wonder – Explore – Learn – Fun, and this is how we teach, learn and support our children, their families and each other on a daily basis.
