Our philosophy

At Active Explorers Central Park, we believe that the environment plays an integral role in children's growth and development, and responsive and reciprocal relationships with our entire learning community are at the heart of all we do. We recognise Maori as Tangata Whenua and the special relationship inherent in the Treaty of Waitangi. We celebrate all cultural celebrations within the centre and encourage children and families to share knowledge, skills and experiences with the community.
