At Lets Explore, our qualified and experienced practitioners provide a warm and homely environment for your child. We ensure each child feels valued, safe, happy and healthy, allowing them to relax and thrive in our secure and inclusive nursery setting.
We believe that children learn and grow best when they feel comfortable and confident in their environment. Therefore, we recognise the importance of building a strong relationship with your child, recording and communicating their progress whilst supporting their individual needs, to help them settle into nursery life.
Our creative and highly skilled practitioners devise fun and engaging activities to nurture your child's growth, including their language and physical, intellectual, emotional, and social skills, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage and Ofsted guidelines. By stimulating their imagination and encouraging their initiative, your child can freely explore and realise their full potential in our supportive setting.
Every detail of our bespoke nursery has been considered to deliver the highest standard of care for your child and features three engaging classroom themes for different age groups - Sea Explorers, Jungle Adventurers and Space Cadets. From the floor layout to the quality of toys, equipment, and vibrant décor, each element of the nursery has been carefully designed to safely assist and promote the key areas of your child's development.
Managed by a fabulous team, with over 15 years' experience at 'outstanding' Ofsted nurseries, we recruit the very best staff and look after them, knowing that a happy team enables us to provide the very best care for your child.
Our children benefit from:
My daughter's key worker is brilliant! She has helped my daughter with her communication skills immensely. She is really empathetic and devises great activities for the development of the babies.
She has made some great relationships with staff and children. Having recently gone through a family crisis and separation the nursery supported my daughter and me through such a difficult time.
My son has been attending since we moved to the area last year and has loved every minute. The nursery itself is spacious and clean with plenty of toys and activities for the children to enjoy and great food and menu options too.
My son has been going to nursery for well over a year. He loves it - I love watching him run in with his backpack on! The team are amazing and superb. With their help, we smashed potty training in two weeks!
The team are beyond incredible, with so many activities and a constant stream of updates and pictures of what she gets up to! My daughter has thrived in their care and she loves all of the team.
My son has attended Lets Explore since September. His development has come on in leaps and bounds, especially with his speech and interaction with other children. Before he started, he had huge separation anxiety from me.
When it's time for your child to start with us, we will work closely with you to make sure that they are introduced gradually, allowing plenty of time to familiarise themselves with us and the nursery, and ensure a smooth transition for both you and your child.
We pride ourselves on excellent communication with parents and guardians. We hold sessions throughout the year that allow you to come in and discuss your child's progress. Through the Famly app, you will be sent regular updates and pictures throughout the day so that you know what your child has been doing, when they slept, when they had their nappy changed or went to the toilet. On the Family app, we also record your child's development against the Early Years Foundation Stage areas of learning, making sure you are always in the loop.
We work closely with outside agencies and local SEN charities to make sure our little explorers with learning difficulties and disabilities are included in all our activities. We work hard to make sure our knowledge is up to date and that support systems are in place for specific conditions. We are committed to staff training, making sure that children have access to all opportunities with us.
We are open 5 days a week, 51 weeks a year (excluding bank holidays), we offer full day care either on a full week, part week or sessional basis.
|Monday - Friday||7am - 7pm|
From the moment your child arrives first thing in the morning, they will be welcomed by their own key worker and have constant supervision with our friendly, caring team all day. We work with you to make sure your home routine is reflected with us, keeping your child reassured and making the transition as easy as possible.
In our bright, open plan and modern space, we incorporate both structured activities and child-led play sessions to give children a fun range of opportunities for development. There's never a dull moment at Lets Explore - between activities we break the day up to allow time for healthy snacks, nutritious meals, naps, and free play, keeping children engaged and happy all the way through to home time.
