our story

Active Explorers is an inquiry based learning programme that offers children opportunities and time to learn and discovery through their play. We have a passionate team of teachers who work alongside the children promoting a foundation for children to develop independence and social competency that will set them up for a smooth transition to school.

We believe in primary care where each child and their whanau can build trusting reciprocal relationships with teachers. Offering children, the opportunities to form strong attachment with their ‘whānau teacher’ giving them a secure environment to grow and develop in to confident people.

ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.

You can read our centre’s ERO review here.
