Active Explorers has become Maggie's 'home away from home' since she was 6 months old. We have loved watching her grow, with the support of the teachers, into a social, independent, happy and confident little girl.

We love that the staff accommodate for Maggie's needs and her strengths and interests. She is always stimulated, engaged and nurtured. It has been a fantastic place for her to play, learn and grow.

Maggie enjoys to spend a lot of time outdoors, learning new skills and loves to sing and dance which makes Active Explorers her ideal environment!

Being a first time mum and returning to work was always going to be daunting. The moment I stepped foot into Active Explorers Grey Street I knew it was going to be the beginning of a great new chapter. Lily is stimulated, engaged and nurtured, so it is a fantastic place for her to play, learn and grow. We feel very fortunate that she is being so well cared for by attentive and kind people in what has become a home away from home. Lily has formed close relationships with her teachers, but also as a parent I have too. It warms my soul to see Lily thrive and build new relationships and be celebrated as an individual. Thank you to all staff for providing such a great experience for lily and us as parents. It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.
