My dream is to create a fun, social, inspiring space in which children can explore their world, and develop and learn with inspirers who are understanding, respectful and empathetic. The world is changing and we need to change with it.

 ‘Provocations’ are setups that inspire and tweak interest in the child from which the day/week/month develops.

Play is so powerful.

Photographs, drawing, wire design, clay sculpture, play dough and video recordings are used to record their learning and the fun.

Alongside the thinking, negotiation and problem-solving, there are also a host of fun, creative and inspiring PLAY activities which enhance developmental and social play.

We also believe that free play is critically important and allow time for that each and every day.

As a fan of the Reggio Emilia Method, Little Explorers has an immediate and exciting Reggio feel. The classroom environment is creative, warm, inviting, highly tactile and stimulating. The expansive garden is an inspirational and magical space where little people can embark on daily adventures and be inspired to do, what they do best … learn through play! The teaching style is warm, empathetic, gentle and nurturing…
