Catering for children 0-6 years old

Learn, Grow, Explore

Here at MilliDale Explorers, our experienced team provide comprehensive educational programmes and professional care for your child, with plenty of natural education opportunities in a nurturing environment ready for your child to learn, grow and explore.

We regard the environment as the third teacher and have designed MilliDale Explorers to match each child’s unique developmental levels and learning needs. We believe that children learn through play and value our environment as it promotes children’s learning. Individual children’s learning experiences are integrated into our everyday routine. Throughout the centre, natural and open-ended materials provide unlimited chances for children’s imaginations to investigate and play.

Children choose the things that interest them, and teachers facilitate their learning and interests through conferencing. These conversations frequently lead to the recording of learning stories, which are stored in the portfolios of individual students.


All children have the opportunity to experience a rich environment that encompasses tactile experiences, literacy and numeracy skills, outdoor play, sand, water, carpentry, block building, family play, puzzles, art and much more.


Our large number of caring qualified staff are available to guarantee that your child receives great quality education and nurturing that is suited to their specific requirements while at MilliDale Explorers. We have a fantastic ratio of educators to children present to help us achieve this.


MilliDale Explorers’ management and staff strive to provide high-quality early childhood care and education for young children, as well as a supportive atmosphere for parents and whãnau. We plan to do this by offering excellent facilities, high-quality educational tools and programmes, and well-qualified and compassionate teachers.
