Welcome to Explorers Day Care Nursery

About us

Explorers Day Care Nursery is owned and managed by Jenna Whitaker. We are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. 

Explorers day care was last inspected under our previous registration number in October 2018 – you can read the full report here. Since becoming a Limited Company, we have received a new registration number and we are eagerly awaiting an inspection! 

Based on a working farm, we strongly believe in the holistic benefits of the natural world, ensuring that our farm, Forest School and enabling outdoor play areas are an integral part of each day at Explorers.

Prior to becoming a nursery, our beautiful stone building was home to a dairy unit where Ray Simpson milked dairy cows and farmed the 150-acre estate for many years. In 2004 mum of five, Jenna, opened Explorers Day Care, giving the building a new lease of life and creating fantastic memories for all of our children and their families.
