Explorers offers provides wrap-around care for children from the age of four. We strive to build a positive relationship with each child, their parent or carer and school in order to achieve the best care for each individual. We are proud of our friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which each child is valued and able to flourish.

My daughter has been attending Explorers for a year and half now. When I come and collect her, she runs away to the playroom because she wants to stay longer! When I go to work, I don't worry about her at all and look forward to hearing all abut her fun day. She clearly loves it.


I have been using Explorers for over two years and would highly recommend the service. Natasha and her staff are always friendly and professional providing flexible childcare options. The activities provided are varied, stimulating and fun. My child rarely wants to leave.
