The centre has helped my child settle in very quickly, been very helpful with any questions I’ve had. Made it a very easy transition for me as a first time mum, and my son is very happy

Words cannot express the thanks that my family has for all of the amazing teachers and staff at Active Explorers Upper Hutt. We currently have our two daughters enrolled at Active Explorers, both started when they were 9 months old. My 4 year old daughter has grown and matured into a beautiful young girl with fantastic social skills, morals and values and all thanks to the team. My 1 year old has been there for just 2 months now and her development has grown in leaps and bounds. The staff and teachers have all become part of our family and I would recommend Active Explorers to anyone.

I love you guys and my daughter loves it. I know she’s safe and well looked after, you’re always willing to work with me on things I’m trying at home and keep me informed of everything. The security of your centre is amazing and the staff are fantastic.
