Welcome to Explorers Day Care Nursery

A Little Bit Of Information About Explorers

Explorers Nursery is a fantastic nursery that opened on the 7th April 2014. It is owned by Jenna Whitaker. We are open 5 days a week Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm.  Explorers is based on a working farm and we strongly believe this environment has holistic benefits to children.

The working farm, our forest school and our enabling outdoors play areas are a vital part to our Explorers day.

The beautiful stone building was turned from a former dairy unit where Ray Simpson milked dairy cows and farmed the 150-acre estate for many years. But back in 2003 Ray developed the buildings in to offices. Jenna, mum of four, decided she wanted to give the former dairy unit a new lease of life by creating fantastic memories here at Explorers for all families. 

We would love to welcome you and your family to have a look around our beautiful setting
