Active Explorers Greenmeadows go above and beyond for all of the kids

Leesha Brown

It’s a great daycare. I have been extremely impressed and have made the right decision sending him there as he is well looked after. His teachers are great with him and very patient and he’s happy every time we arrive in the morning.

We have had nothing but a positive experience. Great staff and communication. Our son loves it too!

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.


Matariki Fun

Matariki was a hot topic for the children at Active Explorers Greenmeadows last week, and celebrations included everything from craft making to sharing kai.


Jammies for June

Yesterday, Active Explorers Greenmeadows wore PJ’s for the day. This is to support the local initiative, “Jammies for June” where pyjamas, hats, socks and cash are donated in order to provide warm PJ’s for children who may not have them.
