Explorers Childcare Group

Explorers Wraparound Childcare offers a full range of services for children from 0-11 years old including nursery care, preschool places, breakfast and after school clubs supported with holiday clubs to offer true wrapround childcare throughout the year.

We are situated in two distinctive sites, each with a different offering, within Swanage. Both facilities are based within large functional buildings with open access to outdoor play which we encourage children to use all year round. We find the outdoor environment provides a stimulating, exciting and challenging environment which is turn helps all our children with all their learning and development.

Our aims at Explorers Childcare Group are:

To provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment in a flexible setting where children can learn and develop positively as individuals.

To provide children with confidence and ability to communicate effectively with each other and carers and give them the best start in their learning journey.

To engage children with nature and give them the opportunity to become masters of their own learning.

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.
