Purpose built

I have the pleasure of having two of my boys in Active Explorers Rolleston. One in the 3 year old room and one in the 4 year old room. They have both blossomed under the care of the amazing teachers. They have developed more of the knowledge they had and also have learned lots more. But the best part is how excited they are to go to school!


The staff at Active Explorers Rolleston are absolutely amazing and you can tell they truly care about the children and will go above and beyond what is expected. As a family, we feel very fortunate to have found such a great place to send our children. The staff deserves well earned compliments for attending to our most precious investment during the day…our children.

My little one absolutely loves it there. The teachers are wonderful. And the centre as a whole has gone above and beyond on several occasions to help families in need.
