Details for the Club

We recommend that your child dresses casually, and is dressed for the weather and expecting to spend time outside. Trainers are recommended for our forest school site. Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle and a sun hat with them for each session. They should also pack waterproofs as well as a spare change of clothing.

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.
