Our Rooms

Lollipops Waiuku has three separate rooms, enabling us to deliver safe, nurturing and age appropriate learning experiences for all our children.  

Little Kiwis

Our Little Kiwis environment caters for our children aged 3 months to 2.6 years, and provides a homely, caring and nurturing space which supports our little one’s development both physically and cognitively. Our Kaiako are passionate and teach from their hearts.  They work as a whanau/ family which creates great relationships amongst themselves and the tamariki they teach.


Our Pukekos are our children aged 2.6 to 4 years old. Here we endeavour to provide an environment that promotes exploration, self-help skills and helps children become lifelong learners.  We recognise the importance of responsive and reciprocal relationships, we strive to build a strong sense of trust and belonging with children, parents, whanau and our community.


The Tuis room is for our 4 to 5 year olds, and here we provide our tamariki with a nurturing, fun and stimulating environment which supports the development of both their self-help and life skills.

Our transition to school programme provides meaningful experiences that enable children to enjoy being four years old, while at the same time becoming confident and competent learners who are well prepared for school.
