Active Explorers Nelson Street has a lovely environment that I am proud to leave my children at. They have lovely staff and a great philosophy. My children love attending and they have gained valuable experiences, and moral skills to prepare them for their older years in life!

I have two children that have gone through Active Explorers Nelson Street and I can't thank them enough - we feel they go above and beyond. It is a great centre and we would be truly lost without them. My child has had such a great time going to the centre, and has made some lovely relationships that he will miss when he goes to school! 

Thank you very much for all your hard work!

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.
