    Lollipops is a family-centred brand. These are high quality centres, with a natural theme. Lollipops embraces the spirit of freedom that every Kiwi child has the right to feel, our purpose-designed centres feel like the loving home our children left this morning. This is a uniquely New Zealand experience where your children blossom in partnership with our dedicated teachers, learning through Ako principles. Ako is inspired by the ‘Reggio’ teaching philosophy, which has the natural development of a child as its key pillar. With Reggio, children must have some control over the direction of their learning in partnership with their teacher and be able to learn through experiences observation and exploration, rather than simply receive instruction. It’s a relationship of mutual respect.
