Outside Explorer Sessions

Children get to go out with two members of staff for an hour each week for a term to explore the local environment and develop and extend their learning experiences. Parental consent is gained prior to any child being signed up.

Coronavirus Update

The setting will continue to be fully open in Term 2 and following current government guidelines.  

Spaces will not be limited, however we will continue to work within ‘bubbles’ of a maximum of 15 children.  This will enable us to maintain good strict hygeine and social distancing regimes which will be adhered to throughout each session to ensure everyone remains as safe as possible.
