I love looking at my sons’ photos. He looks engaged in a lot of activities that the teachers have set out for the tamariki. Keep up the good work.

The Ramea Family

A wonderful interactive space for all ages to preschool. Excellent facilities and a group of focussed staff that really take into account each little person’s personality and stage of learning. We are very pleased.

We recently moved to Auckland from overseas and have been absolutely amazed at the high-quality early education provided at Active Explorers Blockhouse Bay. The teachers genuinely care for and about the children and we will be sad when our girls are finished there. Highly, highly recommended.

Danny and Charlotte Martin

Active Explorers has been great for our daughter! Her learning and development has been leaping ahead and she has so much fun learning through play and social interaction. The teachers are fantastic, and we really feel she is getting the best possible care, they are very nurturing, family oriented and child led – would certainly recommend Active Explorers Blockhouse Bay.

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.
