My Daughter absolutely loved her time at Active Explorers Cambridge Terrace. The team in the toddlers room all genuinely cared so much for her and formed a true bond with her. The teachers go out of their way to show support to all the children and their families to ensure the kids get the best experience! I would take my daughter back to Active Explorers in a heartbeat!

Our daughter started at Active Explorers Cambridge Terrace as an infant and stayed for 2 1/2 years. What a great place it turned out to be for her! A warm, safe place that enabled our daughter to thrive and grow. The teachers always greeted us in the mornings and answered all our questions. We worked together with all the developmental milestones and challenges. They were patient and kind in hearing us out and giving us assurance when needed. As parents, we entrusted our greatest blessing and we are grateful for the loving care she received! Thank you to all the staff!!
