Rachel Dykes - Playworker / Behaviour Management Lead


"Prior to attending Little Explorers, I had found it difficult to find a suitable pre-school or nursery that could accommodate my son & his additional needs. From the beginning we have been made to feel reassured and welcomed by all the staff. They have been more than accommodating, attending training on my son's behalf in their own free time"
