Pokeno Preschool t/a Urban Explorers

Urban Explorers Pokeno is a privately owned centre that was purpose built in 2015. We pride ourselves on our warm and spacious activity spaces that allow the children to play, create and feel excited about being there. The homely feel to the learning environment gives you a sense of belonging and our relaxed and friendly teachers ensure that you are made welcome from your very first visit. Our outdoor playground space uses natural resources and is an adventure just waiting to be explored.

At Urban Explorers we believe in learning through play and offer all learning experiences through play opportunities. We offer high quality teaching staff who want to get to know your child and explore their learning interests. We encourage full participation of child, staff, parents and Whanau to deepen the connections and links with the wider community. We take a dispositional approach to implementing Te Whariki and this is reflective in our planning and evaluation. We provide a safe and stimulating learning environment to challenge the children and push their boundaries.
