“We LOVE Active Explorers Preschool! This is my daughters first year in preschool and she has loved everyday! I have noticed a huge improvement in her number and letter recognition in such a short time! She is starting to write her name and a lot of short words. The gymnastics component is definitely her favourite and I love that she is active everyday! We will be returning for second year and my youngest will definitely be attending when she is ready! Highly recommend this preschool!”
“This is such an amazing school! Our little guy has learned so much! Loves to tumble around the house with his gymnastics skills. Has picked up all his letters. And has become very artsy! The variety of skills and activities that he has picked up is so exciting!!!!”
“This is the best preschool out there! Sarah is so wonderful with the kids, they learn while having fun and such a bonus that they get to do gymnastics, Zumba and more!”
“Active Explorers is the most amazing Playschool! Sarah is such an exceptional teacher; her patience, kindness, and the way she communicates with the children is so heartwarming. She is so incredible at her job, and it shows in everything she does; the beautiful classroom, the crafts and activities, the education and physical activity/gymnastics… absolutely every aspect of this play school is so well thought out and incredible. I cannot say enough good things about this school and am so happy my son has been able to attend here.!”
“This is the best preschool ever! The teacher did amazing with my shy quiet kid and never pushed her. My daughter wanted to go to preschool over any other activity. The program it self is amazing being three whole hours and gymnastics. Highly recommend!!”
“My son loves his program. He always has a great time. Sarah handles the children with lots of love and brings valuable teaching experience to her classroom. We are looking forward to next year.”
Our mission as a sports-based preschool is to form relationships with families and to design preschool and gymnastics programs that are intertwined and together foster physical, social, cognitive and emotional development. We provide a nurturing and safe environment where every child is valued and respected, and can embrace learning as they are able.
At Active Explorers, we believe the health benefits of physical activity extend well beyond physical health, and have a positive impact on a child’s motor skills, cognition, social and emotional development. Gymnastics is the most comprehensive activity for physical development and contributes greatly to overall child development. We also believe that authentic learning tasks and a rich environment are integral to student learning. A child’s environment must be accessible and encourage confidence, ownership and interaction with the space, materials and people.
“To take children seriously is to value them for who they are right now rather than adults-in-the making.”
