The first thing I noticed and loved was how diverse the centre is! My son loved it & if I’m being honest, the only thing that’s held me back from ever putting him into daycare was me & my separation anxiety lol the teachers were very interactive with my son & myself which I loved too.

My boys have absolutely loved going to Active Explorers in Kaiapoi. The teachers there are totally amazing. They are all so caring, friendly and go the extra mile for the kids. Their outdoor play is fabulous. The environment is warm and inviting and I would highly recommend the preschool to anyone.


All of the teachers at Active Explorers are lovely people. They are easy to communicate with and they really care about the children. My son always looks forward to going 💙


The teachers and staff are amazing and over the 2 years we have been there the knowledge my daughter has gained is priceless. I will miss my second family alot

We have great experiences with the centre, from the facilities to the educators and administration!


Friendly team with a strong focus on individual child development.


Confident in the quality of care my child receives on a daily basis. Teachers are great with their feedback!


When we first came to New Zealand my daughter was just 3. She was having a hard time communicating, mingling with others, but teacher Sue-Ellen and the team patiently assisted and helped her to integrate. Now my daughter is ready and excited to go to primary school because of you! Thank-you very much.


They have made my child's first week very easy by providing them with a calm, happy and secure environment and making sure us parents are informed of any events or incidents that may occur.

Staff at my son's Evolve centre in Hokitika are kind, caring and listen to any concerns or questions. They create a safe, fun space for the kids to play and learn.
