A second home for our children
All of our inviting classrooms have direct access to lovely, natural outdoor areas. Our indoor / outdoor program gives children the opportunity to choose whether they’d prefer to play indoors or outdoors.
Our centre, located near Highpoint, features 3 outdoor areas specifically designed for each age group, an art piazza, a light and reflection room and rich and meaningful learning environments.
Our Educators and management are all extremely passionate about early education and live and breathe the Reggio Emilia approach.
Our children are given the opportunity to play outdoors in large yards designated to each age group. We also have a community garden, pets, worm farm and compost system for children to engage with.
At Explorers, we like to give our children a little bit EXTRA! That’s why our Extras Program has been created to enhance the children’s experience and provide opportunities for learning in specialised areas. All children are welcome to participate in this program at no additional cost.
These programs include Gardening & Sustainability, Creative Arts, Music & Movement, French and Speech Therapy.

Our child initiated, play based program stimulates children’s learning, exploration and social connections.
The Maidstone Kindergarten program is taught by our passionate Kindergarten Teachers.
This program (for 3 and 4 year olds) uses a play based approach that emphasises learning through exploration and investigation. The program encourages children to be creative in all areas, whether it is problem solving or the expressive arts. It also encourages lateral thinking and positive social interactions.
Our program runs within long day care hours.
