our story

Our centre in Broadway has a long history of providing high quality care and education in Palmerston North. Our positive reputation is validated by our families, past and present, who recommend us to family and friends. Our location is highly valued by our families who work in the CBD, providing convenience and a sense of comfort that their children are nearby.  

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.

  • The team at Active Explorers on Broadway Ave Palmerston North have been a significant part of my family’s life for the last four years as they have cared for my two children Ruby and Max.

    My husband and I have found the staff to be loving, dedicated and nurturing, enabling our children to grow and develop in a happy and loving environment.

     As parents we have had complete confidence in the centres ability to care for our children and have always felt welcomed by the staff who work there.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending the centre to other families looking for an early childhood facility to care and nurture their children.

  • The biggest draw card for me in choosing Active Explorers Broadway was the teacher child ratios. It meant my son was not lost in a corner of a large building or competing with 100 other kids for attention. The teachers are fantastic, very caring and really take the time to get to know the children and build relationships. My son has been very happy there which makes my day easier knowing he is enjoying himself and being looked after well. The story park updates keep you so update with their monthly or day-day activities with the extra individual stories which show how much the staff are doing to develop our children intellectually.
