Testimonials

  • Thank you so much for taking care of my children. I love seeing my children learning new things every single day. When I was searching the pre-school for my girls, I visited and interviewed to many centers and I found Active Explorers Cambridge Terrace among them. When my kids started the school, my first daughter was 3.5 years old and second one was 2.5 years old.  As we migrated from other country, my kids were afraid of the new places and new people. But teachers are very friendly and encourage them not to be afraid of the school. Later on, they talked fondly of their teachers and how they played/learned at school. I really appreciate the hard work of teachers and teams from Active Explorers!

  • Truly a humble thank you for opening your doors and welcoming me into your centre. I have loved learning alongside your teaching team, you are all so talented and have inspired me as a new teacher to be the best teacher as I can.


  • I have the pleasure of having two of my boys in Rolleston First learners, One in the 3yr room and one in the 4yr room. They have both blossomed under the care of the amazing teachers. They have developed more of the knowledge they had and also have learned lots more. But the best part is how excited they are to go to school!

  • Both of our children attended Nurtured and we were impressed with the education they received. It is a fantastic, caring environment and the children have so many different learning opportunities - both at and outside the centre. The teachers always go the extra mile for the children and really help prepare them for school.

  • Our son has been attending Active Explorers Broadway for roughly 3 years now and we couldn’t be happier. Mason enjoys going every morning and has learnt so much. It’s important to us that Mason has a fun, safe and happy environment to attend every day and Lollipops is exactly that and more. Mason comes home talking about the planets and gravity, he’s learning how to add numbers together and knows how to write his name. Mel and the staff have all exceeded our expectations. They are all very friendly and so easy to talk to but best of all they’re genuinely interested in Mason and our family.
