The most valuable resource we can give children is our time and attention

At Little Explorers we believe that every child is unique and we encourage each child to find their talents through play and exploration.  We offer a unique and superb outdoor learning and adventure space for children to explore and enjoy the wonders of water, sand and mud.

We are particularly proud of our sensory area, which is used for 1:1 focused learning, a relaxing space for those who may need some sensory reprieve from their main room or if a child would just like some quiet time. 

We also run an after school club for up to year 6 children (11yr).

In their owns words

We have loved having our daughter at Little Explorers! The management & general staff are friendly, approachable, understanding, supportive and always listen to concerns or queries no matter how small they maybe it's never too much trouble.

She has gained a lot in her time there so far and also been supported with personal changes outside the setting at home that could be more unsettling than it is to her without staff's understanding and patience when she’s in their care. We have seen massive leaps especially in her confidence and social skills, she now runs in and doesn't look back!

From what we have seen they give 110% to all the children to bring out the best in them and most importantly, they have fun!

Never had any issues! I feel comfortable in knowing she is happy, safe and enjoying herself whilst developing skills ready for school next year without it being a strict "structure" type Pre-school.

Thank you so much!

Wonderful nursery and staff have been very supportive in helping our son not just with his day to day needs but with his speech and development as well. He wouldn’t be where he is now without all of your support. He loves coming in to hear what activities he is doing on that day and talks about them when he comes home as well. Staff are always approachable with any queries we have and have all taken the time to get to know him well and help him with his routines. Thank you to you all
