What We Do


Professional Development

As a group, Littlefoot Childcare recognises that the wellbeing of our staff directly impacts on the standard of care within each centre. Acknowledging staff as professional educators and contributing to their wellbeing is a core value of the group, to this end we provide a professional development programme to develop and extend the knowledge and skills of staff as individuals.

Six-weekly workshops which are linked to our policies and practices are available through Littlefoot Childcare’s Support Team. Examples of these workshops include a car-rally to knowledge-share ideas from other centres, Transition to School, Culture-flow, and Toddlers and the Environment workshops.

Our Centre Directors are acknowledged as leaders and professionals and regularly attend workshops and discussions designed to develop leadership and business skills. We have an open-door policy between centres and Head Office staff with every centre being overseen by a National Operations Manager and a team of support staff.

Our Mission

• Raising confident and capable New Zealanders through quality early childhood experiences, learning opportunities and relationships.
• Lollipops Educare offers parents the opportunity to invest in their child’s future. Through positive learning opportunities, social experiences and personal empowerment, each child’s future begins to take shape and their true potential begins to shine.
• Lollipops Educare strives to raise the bar for early childhood centres. Childcare is no longer about babysitting but about creating specialized opportunities to unlock the unique potential of every child.


Latest Testimonial

Just a quick note to say how impressed I am with the quick response to my request for a door for my two dogs and your recommendation of the new Micro Chip Cat Door. While I know the product is aimed at helping the feline species to be independent I am extremely happy with the product. The Bichon boys (the door is a great size for these wee dogs) are also delighted as they are now able to come and go with ease. Thanks to Auckland Cat Doors we are happy and well satisfied customers.

Kind regards,
