What parents say about us
The staff at Active Explorers Broadway, Palmerston North have played a big part in the lives of two of our children. They have flourished under the care, support and learning opportunities and experiences provided by their teachers. Nathaniel continues to grow and thrive in his surroundings with teachers who genuinely care and want the very best for him by providing a safe and loving environment. We highly recommend Active Explorers to parents who are looking for a warm, friendly, inclusive setting with professional staff to care for their children.

Our family has been really happy at Leaps & Bounds Henderson. The teachers are knowledgeable and genuinely care for the children. Our two boys have both thrived in this awesome environment.
My kids have been going to this Preschool since we shifted to Leeston about 4 years ago. Active Explorers is a fantastic centre that I would totally recommend to others. The teachers are great with my kids. They do so many activities and explore and focus on topics throughout the year. As a parent we are kept up-to-date with what is going on. They also have many activities to include parents such as excursions, cross country, and Mataariki. As a parent I definitely feel a part of Active Explorers and am very happy that my children belong to this Centre.
Nixon started at Active Explorers Broadway when he was just 10 months old. The staff were very accommodating, assuring and helpful from the day they met him. Nixon grew from a small baby into a happy, caring little boy. Nixon has excelled in all areas of development since being enrolled at Lollipops and this has significantly had an impact on our families trust and loyalty to the staff at both Lollipops Grey Street and Lollipops Broadway.
As the centre manager, Mell Hall always had a compassionate and caring nature towards Nixon and always kept us up to date on centre curriculum, activities and ongoing developments that involve the children. Our family is grateful for Nixon having such awesome teachers in his early education years and would recommend Active Explorers to everyone!
Thank you all so much for the wonderful care you have given our two girls over the past 6 years. It is great as a parent to know your children are being well cared for in a safe, happy environment. Thank you all for being such a blessing.
Thank you for the huge part you have played in our wee mans life. He has loved his time with you and he will take the skills you have instilled in him into the next exciting stage of his life. Thanks again

Over the years my three children have formed wonderful bonds with all the staff. I have found the staff to be organised, professional, caring and helpful.
It is with great sadness and anxiety that we wish to confirm the last day of the children. Thank you for your support love and friendship over the last 3 years. We have come to see you as family, minding our little ones and sharing stories. The care and nurturing you have all provided has ensured that both children felt safe and happy to be with you during our absences. We will miss our daily chats and guidance as much as the children will miss you all. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will always have wonderful memories of Paddingtons and the amazing teachers.
The Clark Family
I like to think of Active Explorers as our second home. Being with them for almost three years, we have gained a sense of belonging and connection with all staff and can tell our children's learning is valued. I often think 'would Memphis-Rose know what she does now, if she were at home with me all these years?'. I am not qualified to teach her, I don't have all the resources to develop her Te Reo language and preparation for school, so for me this has been a big investment that I will never regret! The centre make such an effect to incorporate all family and cultures into events, such as GUFF day, Matariki and other various occasions, that it is something to look forward to each year. I always feel up to date with what my children are learning with the regular stories that are published on Storypark and chitchats with the staff. I have referred various people to the centre as I am confident they will love it as much as me!
Both my children have attended Leaps & Bounds Henderson. We have enjoyed every day of it. The teachers are excellent! Giving us feedback on the children on a regular basis. They prepare the children for school to a very high standard, with school visits and routines to learn what school will be like. I would highly recommend Leaps and Bounds Henderson to anyone wanting a top class early child care centre.
