Wow! It's been amazing having been part of the Explorer’s family. I couldn’t have chosen any other preschool for my daughter. Thank you so much to the amazing teachers, we felt at home

Daffodil Day at AE Rolleston

Today we "planted" our daffodil with some of the Daffodils for Hope bulbs in some barrels outside our centre.


Hey Dee Ho music programme

Our fantastic Hey Dee Ho programme will be starting for our children on Thursday, in our Nga Whetu room. This programme is free to children who attend on Thursdays at Active Explorers. Enrol your child with us to tap in to this opportunity.


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.
