Absolutely love this daycare. My daughter has been attending here just over a year since she was 10 months old.

Her confidence has sky rocketed due to the excellent teachers she has, and her learning and ability to do so many things has developed so quickly due to all the activities and time they spend with the kids. Plenty of messy play, outdoor play etc.

Great food cooked by the center cook as well and a good range for the kids.

Highly recommend this center if you're looking for a center with great teachers, a wide range of activity and learning opportunities and a safe space for your children :)

My one and only princess Julliana started with them this year. At first I didn’t know what to expect as I’ve been thinking they were simply just babysitters. .However, she has been improving in so many ways and it changed my perception of them. I have learned that they are highly qualified professionals. So far, Julliana shows huge improvements in not only her social development but also her cognitive skills thanks to their daily activities and programs at school. Highly recommended and Julliana’s unborn younger siblings will definitely be attending this centre. I am more focused at work now knowing my baby is surrounded by lovely professionals in an amazing safe surrounding throughout the day.

The staff at Active Explorers are so kind and have a genuine interest in the kids. It's not just a job. I can rest assured they care about my son. The Centre Manager is lovely, friendly, approachable and flexible. I also love that they are given a healthy home-cooked meals by the talented chef Csilla.

We would like to thank you for incredible care, dedication and love to our daughter and other kids. It has been an amazing experience for her, her very first English-speaking society experience and a great way to adopt in New Zealand. As parents, we noticed a significant improvement in her speaking, social skills, crafting, drawing and other aptitudes. Our special appreciation goes to all the Pohutukawa teachers.

Active Explorers is just an amazing place. All 3 of my children have gone through here and had the best time. There are always exciting activities and experiences for them to do. The educators are like a second family to us, always smiling and engaging when ever we walk in the door. They always keep me informed with my child's achievements and asking for my input for areas my child may need assistance in. I'm very grateful for everything they do.

My daughter has been part of the Active Explorers family for nearly a year now and I have absolutely adored watching her grow and develop with the gentle guidance of her teachers.

She has learnt routines that I have since implemented at home because they work so well for her. Her teachers have catered to her individual needs so well to ensure she feels safe and supported as she continues to reach new milestones. I know she is loved and supported so well every day that she is with her daycare family, and I am so grateful to have had such incredible people looking after my girl! Thank you for imparting the best of yourselves into my daughter, we are so blessed to have all in our lives.

Coming from another centre I assumed they were all much the same, turns out they aren't!

The teachers and staff are the loveliest, most genuine group of ladies, they feel more like family to us. Teaching good morals and setting achievable learning goals is important at this centre and of course, the kids have heaps of fun doing all the arts and crafts they have. Not to mention playing in the awesome outdoor area.

My kids absolutely adore coming to active explorers Tauriko, I couldn't speak more highly of this centre.
