Thank you all so much for the wonderful care you have given our two girls over the past 6 years. It is great as a parent to know your children are being well cared for in a safe, happy environment. Thank you all for being such a blessing.


The teachers at Active Explorers Richmond have been outstanding! They are extremely caring, warm, friendly and supportive of each child’s individual needs. They are very competent at their job and we will miss them very much.


Thank you to you all for welcoming us in and supporting my children. I always felt they were in a safe and happy environment. We have felt very supported by the staff at Active Explorers Richmond.


Staff kept us well informed, great bonds with the children and seem happy in the workplace. They are very understanding when first settling children and providing individual care to my boys. They developed/exposed the boys to things that they were enthusiastic about, had the rooms well organised in relation to play/routine etc. The manager was very approachable, quick with responses to requests.

Sand play is a perennial favourite with small children, and this week the children at Active Explorers Richmond developed their physical, social and cognitive skills making rivers and lakes by digging in the sand and moving water from the trough to the sandpit.
