Education& trainingAdvertising Feature Lollipops Educare St Lukes -- new kids on the block Friendly faces: The staff and children from Lollipops Educare St Lukes. Lollipops Educare is a name synonymous with quality childcare, and their newest purpose- built centre, Lollipops Educare St Lukes, has been delighting both parents and children, since it opened last Octo- ber. Situated on the corner of Morningside Drive and Sainsbury Rd, the centre conveniently encompasses the entire top level of the newly developed Sainsbury Retail Centre, and provides children with a fantastic environment in which they can develop and learn. Centre director Tony Hawkings has three chil- dren who have all experi- enced the Lollipops Educare upbringing and is thrilled to be able to offer other parents the same opportunity. Tony has a back- ground as a police officer, but says that the last two years in childcare man- agement has been a breath of fresh air. It's quite a privilege to watch children grow and develop their own unique personalities. Good team spirit, functionality and com- munication are a pre- requisite for developing a good centre. This basis, coupled with nurturing, love and a genuine passion for children forms the core of our team. We have come a long way in very short period of time and look forward to the journey ahead.'' Lollipops Educare St Lukes is bright, spacious and very modern. Out- door areas are segre- gated between under two and over two age groups, each with their own sandpit and large sun- shades. An open door policy gives children the choice of either indoor or outdoor activities. All meals are prepared daily by Ana, the centre's qualified chef with the children's health and wellbeing in mind. There's nothing more inviting than walking into an environment that smells of freshly cooked meals and baking. The centre also boasts a high calibre of experi- enced educators who are continually looking for ways to improve operations and quality while ensuring a positive experience for children. Parents are encour- aged to come and see all that Lollipops Educare St Lukes offers first hand. Lollipops Educare St Lukes is located at Level 2, 55 Sainsbury Rd, St Lukes. The centre operates between 7.30am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Contact either Tony or centre supervisor Tayyaba on 815-8586 or email stlukes@lollipopseducare .co.nz for information. Safe and sound The safe sound indicator invented by the Young New Zealander of the Year has the potential to change the way future generations deal with noise. In congratulating Jamie Fenton on her award, National Foundation for the deaf CEO Louise Carroll says the indicator, which dis- plays noise levels in the form of traffic lights with red meaning noise is too loud, would teach young children how sound could become toxic. The concept Jamie came up with is a good simple way of getting the message across to children and hopefully it is a message they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.'' We congratulate Jamie on being named 2011 Young New Zealander of the year. Her idea was innovative and an example of the skills she has applied to many other areas of her life.'' Mrs Carroll says the safe sound indicator, shows a green light when noise reached 80 decibels, and progressed through orange to a warning red when the level started to become dangerous at 90 dB and the first 50 indicators are about to be distributed. The safe sound indicator is being sold to pre- schools around New Zealand where research has shown noise levels can be a risk to both staff and children and in some instances being donated as a result of much appreciated grants from funding agencies.
