What parents say about us
The staff at Active Explorers Broadway made me and my two children feel welcome from the day we arrived. As a working mum, they made me feel at ease to leave my kids it a warm and welcoming environment which has encouraged their development. I have seen my children grow in confidence so much since joining the lollipops family and set in place the start of their learning journey. I would highly recommend Mel and her team to anyone.
We love that our daughter is so loved and cared for at Active Explorers Leeston. All of the teachers have taken the time to get to know her and support and extend her interests of music, drama, dance and language.
Her relationship with her key teacher, Lisa, is very special, and her transition from the toddler room to the "big side" has been well supported and totally led by her needs and readiness.
Another awesome thing about Active Explorers is the environment and the inclusion of the children in caring for and developing their outdoor space - which is huge!
I-kids Kaiwharawhara are fantastic-the teaching staff provide a caring and supportive environment. They encourage independent play and thinking and are flexible in catering for our daughters ever changing interests.
Thank you so much for looking after Matt, for inspiring and supporting him and our family. This is really the end of an era for our family as we have attended MELC since opening day. What fantastic staff you have, always coming up with genius ideas and having extraordinary patience, encouraging kids to cooperate, make friends, pursue many many interests explore and develop coordination and so much more. We have always appreciated the feedback on our kids and helpful advice and encouragement. We will really miss the staff our friends at the centre, a massive thank you to you all.
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.
As parents, trust and safety is the utmost importance when leaving our children in care. Our boys have not only formed close bonds with their teachers, but are continuously learning and growing. It is obvious that a lot of effort and thought goes into planning a fun-loving, safe and caring environment for the children. We would like to thank Clever Kids for all the opportunities that you provide on a daily basis and taking such good care of our boys. It is very comforting knowing that they are in good hands.

Staff kept us well informed, great bonds with the children and seem happy in the workplace. They are very understanding when first settling children and providing individual care to my boys. They developed/exposed the boys to things that they were enthusiastic about, had the rooms well organised in relation to play/routine etc. The manager was very approachable, quick with responses to requests.
We can't thank you enough for the care and love you have shown to H. He has had the most magical and amazing time the past 4 years. Many, many thanks

Words cannot express the thanks that my family has for each and every staff member at First Learners. When looking for childcare we had very high standards of what we were looking for, in particular how caring and approachable the staff were. As soon as we walked into First Learners I was instantly made to feel welcome and so were my children. We were (and always are) greeted by a friendly face and treated with respect and kindness. Staff are promptly available to answer any questions or concerns we may have and their open door policy is reassuring to us. Each staff member looks at the children as individuals with their own strengths and needs and cater for these exceptionally. The staff at First Learners are absolutely amazing and you can tell they truly care about the children and will go above and beyond what is expected.
As a family, we feel very fortunate to have found such a great place to send our children. The staff deserves well earned compliments for attending to our most precious investment during the day…our children.
Thank you for all your help, support, advice in regards to our children over the years. We as parents appreciate any help that is available. You have an awesome team Angela.
