What parents say about us

Words cannot express the appreciation and gratitude we have for the Clever Kids team, leaving our 2 boys every morning was like leaving them with family. From day 1 we felt so comfortable knowing our boys were well cared for and loved. They have excelled so much and have learnt so many new things since being in Clever Kids care. We will miss the entire team at Clever Kid, and a massive THANK YOU to all the lovely educators who had both Brooklin and Braxton in their care. We hope to find a Centre like Clever Kids in Melbourne (fingers crossed)!!

Leaps & Bounds Henderson is an amazing centre! My daughter loves to come and enjoys her learning, she has made amazing friendships. The teachers and staff are so warm and friendly, we wouldn't send her anywhere else!

I wanted to take the opportunity to commend the past and present teachers of Clever Kids. Thank you for creating a welcoming, loving and caring environment where our children are feeling safe and happy to spend many hours each day. As you are aware Jake loved his time at Clever Kids. Jake has flourished at school from the very beginning, and I totally believe that as teachers, you have all played a significant role with your guidance and support including all the school preparation.

We were very fortunate to be part of the Active Explorers family for four amazing years, from the time our daughter turned one until she moved on to start primary school. The Centre felt like the right place for us from the moment we first visited, and our first impressions proved to be correct. In our time with the Centre, Ella moved through all three of the classrooms and was fortunate to experience the teaching and care of many of the staff.  Without exception, her teachers were caring, dedicated, and innovative in the way they supported Ella’s learning and development. The centre's approach to us as a family was inclusive and respectful and they worked to ensure that the relationship between the centre and our family was meaningful and supportive. Ella’s development and learning extended seamlessly between the centre and home – her teachers became an extension of our family and their relationships with Ella vitally important to her development.  

I would have no hesitation at all in recommending the Centre to other families. Putting your child into the care of someone else can be a tough decision to make, but the experience is incredibly positive when your child is cared for by a team like this one.

I am absolutely heartbroken to have to pull our daughter out of your centre - she has been very, very happy with Vanessa in the Infants Room and we have the greatest respect and affection for the whole team. I was pretty concerned about leaving my little girl in day-care at four months old but she has absolutely thrived. She is noticeably more social, settled and confident than other babies in our antenatal group which tells me I made the right choice.

The entire infants room team, and the wider staff, have been incredibly kind and patient. Vanessa and Lynney in particular seem to hold very genuine affection for our daughter and go to great lengths to ensure she is happy, secure and receiving appropriate developmental opportunities. Every morning our daughter shrieks with delight when she sees her teachers and we've never, ever had tears at drop-off time.

We've shared our daughter’s Storypark content with our extended families - the grandparents in particular have appreciated seeing these lovely updates as both my parents and my husband's parents live out of town. Thank you for this.

Mum of Jack

We are the parents of Katelina Renee Lim who is in the Tui room. She happily comes home with a great attitude and she has such a wonderful growing intelligence. Her manner we have especially noticed that she likes to read the books and speaks like an adult. As we have busy lifestyles we definitely will not get through this without Lollipop Educare and all the amazing teachers who are very passionate with the children and skilled, helpful, and friendly, it such as a safe second home to our children.

We believe teachers and staff are not praised as often as they should be because you are what help mould our future generations. Thank you for being a part of our boys lives, helping to develop them, cuddle and encourage them.  Over the last three years you have all become a part of our family and you have all helped raise our boys to be confident and fun loving by nurturing their needs, wants and desires.  It’s sad to say goodbye as they move onto another chapter in their lives.  But this is not goodbye it’s a see you later.


My son (2 yrs) is the youngest of 3 boys and up until he started Active Explorers Hokitika he had minimal interactions with children his age. I've watched him in the nursery and I am amazed how he has learned to mingle and play with other children. It is very exciting seeing all the new skills he is learning.

My son absolutely loves Active Explorers Hokitika. He has recently changed from 2 days per week to fulltime in the space of a month and the staff have made the transition so smooth for him and I.

I drop my son of at preschool in the morning and I know that he is well cared for. My son is always so happy when I pick him up and the connections he has made with his teachers is so heart warming to see. As a parent I have always struggled with the idea of preschool but the staff are great and made it so easy.

Thank you so much!

I have been privileged to be part of the Active Explorers whanau now for about 14 months. Seth started his learning journey in Tpt where he quickly developed some special relationships with both his peers, families and teachers. His love of te reo maori has been fully supported and his ability to say his mihi and lead karakia has blown me away. Another big milestone was his recent transition through to koru lounge where this was done so respectfully. His teachers worked together to make this a positive experience for not only Seth but our family. The communication has been great and i enjoy the conversations between teachers. I am always informed about how he’s doing and what he has done during the day and he will still venture back to visit which we think is pretty neat. Seth has grown so much in his time at Active Explorers and I know he will be well prepared for when goes to school with the support of the rising 5's. A big thankyou to all the team for taking such great care of our pepi and laying down the foundations for his learning journey.
