Our Rooms

Active Explorers Highbrook has eight separate rooms, so children can enjoy age appropriate activities and learning opportunities. Our amazing facilities also include a wharekai (dining room) where our preschoolers all come together to dine as a community.


Active Explorers Highbrook is extremely fortunate to have a dedicated Nursery room for our 0 – 1 year olds. Designed to be an extension of your own home, it feels like a warm and welcoming lounge room.  No walking feet are allowed in here, just babies, so it is safe and secure for even our very youngest Active Explorers.

Tui Infants & Kakapo Infants

Our Infants rooms are dedicated spaces for our 1 to 2 years old.  An environment which is supportive and nurturing and equipped with everything they need to thrive.

Kiwi Toddlers, Tui Toddlers & Kakapo Toddlers

These three vibrant rooms cater for our toddlers aged 2 to around 3.5 years old. They are inspiring, and engaging spaces with plenty of fun filled activities and meaningful learning opportunities.

Kakapo Young Children and Kiwi Young Children Rooms

Our pre-schoolers are 3.5 to 5 years old, who are well catered for here with plenty of activities that challenge and extend their interests.  We have an excellent transition to school programme, and our famous wall of graduates leave the centre as confident little learners ready to start their next chapter at BIG school.
