We would like to thank you for incredible care, dedication and love to our daughter and other kids. It has been an amazing experience for her, her very first English-speaking society experience and a great way to adopt in New Zealand. As parents, we noticed a significant improvement in her speaking, social skills, crafting, drawing and other aptitudes. Our special appreciation goes to all the Pohutukawa teachers.

The staff at Active Explorers are so kind and have a genuine interest in the kids. It's not just a job. I can rest assured they care about my son. The Centre Manager is lovely, friendly, approachable and flexible. I also love that they are given a healthy home-cooked meals by the talented chef Csilla.

My daughter loves Active Explorers. How do I know? Because she is smiling when the lift opens in the morning, because she waves and smiles to everybody we meet in the hall, because she gives high fives, because she hugs her teacher, because I see joy on her face when I arrive in the afternoon. That is why I love Active Explorers, too.
