About Us

Grow Active was established in 2017 by business partners and friends, Cathy Sherwood, Claire Rolls, Rob Farrell and Sam Rofe, merging their set of skills and experience in childcare, business, construction and inner city Christchurch commercial development to create a sincere company with a straightforward vision. We are all passionate about contributing to Grow Active and its forward plans, so that we continue to create the best opportunities to enrich the lives of the children and families that attend our centres.

Cathy and Claire co founded Launch active early learning in 2016, both have extensive experience with over a combined 30 years in the child care industry. They are passionate about providing quality spaces for children, families and teachers. Partnering with co founders of Box 112 Rob and Sam, their mission is to help make Christchurch the most liveable city in the world, by creating authentic one off spaces that add value to the community and provide continued growth for the city of Christchurch.

We have designed Grow Active around the concept of sustainability and active early learners. Grow Active provides nurturing and engaging spaces for children we value the importance of positive and trusting relationships and believe this helps to build the foundations for lifelong learning.

Our Approach

Our approach starts by creating secure, healthy and welcoming environments and building a sense of belonging for children and their families. Our approach to care for children is based on trusting, respectful relationships and consistency of care.

We inspire curiosity, foster creativity and support discovery with a variety of sensory rich experience spaces. Children have lots of space to move and explore with extended outdoor play spaces and natural environments to accommodate growing and inquisitive bodies.
