How we cater to your child's needs

Urban Explorers provides a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for your child to develop. Our under-two setting boasts low ratio, high quality primary caregiver relationships which are responsive and respectful of our littlest people. We provide an engaging and secure environment which is focused on building foundations for healthy development.

All children have supervised daily access to our safe, spacious and fully equipped outdoor play and recreation areas.

Healthy Nutritious Meals

Children attending full day childcare services are provided with morning and afternoon tea and a full midday meal featuring healthy nutritious foods. Special dietary needs for health or cultural reasons are catered for. 

Please feel free to discuss any special food considerations with our staff.


We practise positive guidance by role modelling good behaviour and teaching the children how to behave. Our Ka Pai table is an example of how we praise those children who have responded and displayed positive behaviour.
Our qualified and experienced childcare and teaching staff will work in partnership with you towards the physical, emotional, social, cultural and intellectual enrichment of your child.
All groups have a high teacher to child ration with close interaction and involvement.

We use StoryPark

StoryPark is an all-encompassing online portfolio platform that actively involves you in your child’s learning journey. It functions as a powerful communication tool, facilitating the viewing and sharing of photos and videos while also capturing kaikao's observations, evaluations and assessments of your child’s development. It helps begin a record of your child's learning journey that you can access anytime and will cherish forever. It is a great way to share and communicate privately with the people that matter most to your child. Please visit to read more about it or chat to the centre manager if you would like to find out more information.


Excursions out of the centre will be arranged from time to time as part of your child’s early learning experience and connection to the local community. This offers tamariki different opportunities and the chance to build on the learning they are doing at the centre. Parents/caregivers are encouraged to be part of our outings. Children who do not attend the excursion will remain at the centre under the care of staff.
For these activities, charges may apply to cover direct expenses such as transportation, entry fees and additional staff. Prior notification will be given for each activity outlining the trip, transport, cost, and adult/child ratio and consent will be obtained on an individual basis.
