Set in the middle of Highbrook business hub, our centre was purpose built in 2008, with eight vibrant rooms catering for each age and stage. Like an extension of your own home, our one of a kind Nursery keeps our under 1s safe from walking feet and all our rooms are well-resourced and staffed by highly experienced teachers who genuinely love what they do.

Our job is to ensure your child is cared for in a safe and nurturing environment, to provide them with exceptional learning opportunities to help them grow and thrive, and to equip them with the skills they need to succeed in their lifelong learning journey. That’s a job we take very seriously.

Give your child a flying start. Visit us at Active Explorers Highbrook.

Our experience with Active Explorers Highbrook is wonderful.  Our lil guy has been in the nursery for a few months and is currently in the Infants room and he absolutely loves it.  The teachers are supportive, patient, loveable and caring.  They take time to get to know us as parents and take their job as a teacher very seriously.  This makes us feel very proud, happy and safe to leave our baby with them.  Thank you for the great work!

Active Explorers Highbrook is a warm and inviting kindy that makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. Since my boys started here, they have grown in leaps and it’s all thanks to the love and support from all the teachers here. I can’t say enough about this centre and I would highly recommend it to everyone. You don’t just get childcare, you get a loving community that is all about the kids. Thank you Active Explorers Highbrook for everything.

I am so blessed to have the Active Explorers team to help me cope with the stress and help my then 9 month old baby adjust. They showered her with so much love! Being a working mum and juggling childcare, the centre reassured and comforted me in my teary first few days of sending my baby to childcare. Today Adelyn is in her 1 year old classroom with her mates and I can continue a full-time job without any worry, all because of a great and supportive team at Active Explorers. Thank you Active Explorers Highbrook.

Active Explorers Highbrook is a wonderful centre - they go above and beyond to make sure my children are safe and nurtured. Janine is awesome, always welcoming and she really cares about each child - the team of teachers are great too and I really appreciate the intentional investment they always make into my children with their development. 

I would really recommend this centre to anyone.
