our story

At Active Explores Camrose we encourage children to become lifelong learners by developing intellectual curiosity and a thirst for discovery and achievement.  We strive to create a diverse community that fosters mutual respect and social responsibility, enhanced by a strong partnership between home and the centre.

We at Active Explorers Camrose have a culturally diverse teaching team, with cultures ranging from Maori, Indian, Korean, Chinese, Pilipino, Mexican and South African.  With this diversity, we are able to support our families within the centre.  For our Chinese children and families, we offer a Mandarin speaking teacher in each room.  These teachers support the children and families transitioning into the centre environment and develop collaborative relationships with the extended family and community.

To assist further with our children who have English as a second language, we have a qualified Early Childhood Teacher who has a Masters in Linguistics.  She has a passion for supporting children with language and communication alongside the families.

To support our children in their physical growth and development we have a male teacher who is passionate about sports.  He contributes his passion to our program and curriculum by developing children through physical movement and activities.

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.
