They have made my child's first week very easy by providing them with a calm, happy and secure environment and making sure us parents are informed of any events or incidents that may occur.

Staff at my son's Evolve centre in Hokitika are kind, caring and listen to any concerns or questions. They create a safe, fun space for the kids to play and learn.

I've been impressed with the care our daughter has received since joining the centre. The team in there do a great job.


The carers are wonderful and my daughter has settled in well. Great peace of mind to know she is well looked after and I can trust that she is ok.

I am full of admiration for all of the teachers at Active Explorers! Thanks for making our children feel so safe and for creating such enriching experiences for them all.


I am so happy to have my girls come to Active Explorers and am forever grateful for the amazing job you all do and for wearing the multiple hats while i am not there too! Sure makes heading off to work far easier to know they are receiving great care at the same time, so thank you all so much.

My son absolutely loves Active Explorers Hokitika. He i always so happy when I pick him up and the connections he has made with his teachers is so heart warming to see. As a parent I have always struggled with the idea of preschool, but the staff are great and have made it so easy! It is also very exciting to see all of the new skills he is learning. Thank you so much Active Explorers Hokitika!

This is a quick note to say thanks for all the hard work the teaching team put in to taking care of our daughter. She has really come of age since she started at Active Explorers Hokitika. Myself and my wife have noticed a big change in her social skills and has developed a good rapport with the staff and other children.  I would recommend Active Explorers Hokitika to anyone interested in quality daycare with staff that are passionate about their job.
