Our Play Space

Painting, sharing a story and independent hand-washing.

At Little Explorers we are lucky to have the use of some great facilities including our large, bright playroom with role-play and messy-play space, construction area, investigation station and well-stocked, well-used comfy story corner. We have our own kitchen space which we use to cook and for our sociable group lunchtimes. Independent personal care is supported and encouraged through use of our child accessible cloakroom and toilets with hand-washing facilities aimed at helping children on the road to autonomy in self-care.

“A great foundation from which to move on to school – thank you.”

Situated on a large public playing field, we enjoy free-flow outdoor play whenever possible. Secure in our own fenced off area, we offer opportunities to play, learn and develop through carefully chosen activities. With everything from physical apparatus for climbing, balancing and sliding to cosy corners to snuggle up and share stories no matter what the weather, we aim to offer experiences and opportunities to suit all interests, abilities and needs.

Alongside this fantastic space we have our ‘Secret Garden’ where we can dig, plant, grow and harvest or explore, investigate, examine and discover a whole mini-world of bugs, grubs and even pond life!
