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.

All of the teachers at Active Explorers are lovely people. They are easy to communicate with and they really care about the children. My son always looks forward to going 💙
