My daughter and I love Active Explorers Tauriko!  The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating and really focus on individual children’s needs, wants and strengths.  They also work together with you as a parent to address areas that may need to be strengthened or worked on.  If I ever have any worries or queries about my daughter, I know I can talk to any of the staff and I will receive non-judgmental advice.

10/10! I have personally found the level of care and attention given to each and every child to be of the highest standard and this is shown in every aspect of the centre. It is designed to help learning and growing young minds and get them read for starting school. This is made things so much easier for us as a family and the excellent staffing and fantastic management who all make you feel very welcome as soon as you step foot in the door. I would recommend this centre to anyone and everyone with an under 5. You cannot go wrong - from a pick up and drop off bus, to hour that work best for you, all the while receiving the best care possible.

I feel that my daughter and myself have formed close ties with many of the staff there and they are no longer considered as “day care staff” but more like friends and family.  I feel 100% happy when leaving my daughter in the care of Active Explorers Tauriko because I know that she is well cared for, safe and happy.
