My boys have absolutely loved going to Active Explorers in Kaiapoi. The teachers there are totally amazing. They are all so caring, friendly and go the extra mile for the kids. Their outdoor play is fabulous. The environment is warm and inviting and I would highly recommend the preschool to anyone.


It’s a safe and inspiring learning environment. The teachers and Administrators are friendly and helpful.

This center provides a loving and nurturing environment for my daughter. They are fairly priced and provide the best educational tools and meals so I know she is getting the fullest of every aspect that you could hope for in a preschool.

We have been a part of the Kaiapoi Active Explorers community for a year now and I cannot fault it! 

My son started here after leaving another centre that he had been at since a small baby - we were welcomed instantly, and he settled in on the first day. The teachers are so hands on, caring and go above and beyond to ensure each child is safe, happy and loved while learning all about the world. The children love them, and my son has formed strong bonds with every single teacher and staff member.

Moving to Active Explorers was the best thing we did for our family and I encourage anyone looking for childcare to pop in, spend some time and see exactly what it is myself and the other family’s love!
