The teachers at Active Explorers Richmond have been outstanding! They are extremely caring, warm, friendly and supportive of each child’s individual needs. They are very competent at their job and we will miss them very much.


My child is super happy. Teachers are always friendly to me and great with communication. Also I think the sleep facilities and food are fantastic.

Active Explorers Papakura is the best Kindy I’ve come across. The teachers are passionate about what they do and engage well with the kids and parents. I’ve already recommended several friends who now send their kids there too.

Our family has been really happy at Active Explorers Henderson. The teachers are knowledgeable and genuinely care for the children. Our two boys have both thrived in this awesome environment.


I have two children that have gone through Active Explorers Nelson Street and I can't thank them enough - we feel they go above and beyond. It is a great centre and we would be truly lost without them. My child has had such a great time going to the centre, and has made some lovely relationships that he will miss when he goes to school! 

Thank you very much for all your hard work!

I enrolled my daughter Jia about 6 weeks ago. She was new in the country when she started here and I am happy that we chose this as her first childcare in New Zealand as it has turned out to be the best decision. When she started, she didn't know the language at all and hence settling her down was little more challenging compared to other kids. But the teachers in the centre are so supportive that they went extra mile to give her that level of comfort and not just took care of her but encouraged her to get involved in different activities and used multiple ways to communicate with her. The teachers are so friendly with her that she settled down really quickly and even on the weekends she is talking about going to school now!! I can see that my daughter is learning something new every day and that’s what we want as parents. Thanks you!!!


You guys were awesome from the moment I walked in the door, you made me feel welcome and after my sons first day it seems like you guys have done an awesome job with that. I couldn't ask for more!

This preschool has been such a wonderful preschool for my daughter and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience during her time here. The staff are so lovely and easy to talk to, caring and devoted to my child. It is a welcoming environment and teachers keep up great communication. My daughter has grown in confidence and has learnt many valuable life skills there. I always feel secure in the fact that my daughter is being well looked after.

My 3 year old really enjoys coming into the centre every day and often asks if he is going today. He talks about the teachers that work there and has developed some lovely relationships with them. The Kiwi room is also welcoming to us when we walk in and attractive to the children, he is always wanting to show me something or one of his friends that he has made.

I enjoy the educational aspect and he often come home telling about this day and what happened. The teachers make a real effort with special events like the recent ANZAC focus, making it visible around the centre and he still talks about the events that they did around the event. They also provide trips out in the community that often link with their learning.

I enjoy that he has the chance to learn about all the different cultures at the centre through activities, songs and even food.

The use of Storypark is fantastic as it gives the opportunity for his grandparents to be able to see his learning when they don’t always see him. The stories are always great to read and a great form of communication when he is at the centre.

We love the open door policy my parents come and visit all the time and I feel happy we can be so welcome, I enjoying seeing my children on story park and being able to know what they do each day. We moved over recently and preschool had been so welcoming and helped us in many ways. Our daughter has developed confidences and speech and we love she has kind friends and bonds with the staff.
