We love that our daughter is so loved and cared for at Active Explorers Leeston. All of the teachers have taken the time to get to know her and support and extend her interests of music, drama, dance and language.

Her relationship with her key teacher, Lisa, is very special, and her transition from the toddler room to the "big side" has been well supported and totally led by her needs and readiness.

Another awesome thing about Active Explorers is the environment and the inclusion of the children in caring for and developing their outdoor space - which is huge!

Our wee buddy loves this preschool as it has brought the best out of him .He now has more confidence and become more outgoing.We believe this is due to the staff keeping the children engaged and interested in activities.

Thank you to your team

My kids have been going to this Preschool since we shifted to Leeston about 4 years ago. Active Explorers is a fantastic centre that I would totally recommend to others.  The teachers are great with my kids.  They do so many activities and explore and focus on topics throughout the year.  As a parent we are kept up-to-date with what is going on.  They also have many activities to include parents such as excursions, cross country, and Mataariki.  As a parent I definitely feel a part of Active Explorers and am very happy that my children belong to this Centre.


When I think of Active Explorers Leeston...

It’s Fabulous, and I really mean that! What brilliant teachers.  They are so warm natured and very kind to all the children.  My son Gus goes here and he absolutely loves each day... they let the children do what they love the most. I think you are an awesome team and I couldn't be happier that Gus goes to such a caring Preschool. WELL DONE TO YOU ALL YOUR A FABULOUS TEAM.

As a preschool teacher myself, finding somewhere that met my high expectations was a huge task.  But from my first visit to Active Explorers, the caring professional staff, the warm welcome and the genuine interest in my family won me over. My children have settled quickly and I have seen them thrive and grow in this rich environment. #happychildrenhappymummy

Thank you Active Explorers.

Our little girl has loved going to this centre since being 4 months old, it has made her very confident with every task that she tries and I believe this is due to the fabulous staff.

The staff are very caring and make it very easy to leave her each morning, knowing she will be well looked after.

Active Explorers Leeston is wonderful and I highly recommend.

Thanks to all the great staff.
