About Us

Welcome to Little Explorers Nursery

At Little Explorers we nurture children between birth and 5 years of age in our cosy converted home from home in Thornton Cleveleys and Carleton. Both settings offer identical opportunities enabling all explorers to reach their full potential.


Camp fires, mud kitchens and rope swings. Little Explorers Nursery comes alive, creating memories children will treasure for a lifetime. From finding and hatching dragon eggs, building fairy houses and digging trenches, children learn valuable life skills, tool use and experience the magical childhood which every child deserves.
Our opening times are Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm, 51 weeks of the year (closing one week over the Christmas period.) We offer a variety of sessions including mornings, afternoons and full day care. Please give us a call for more information on available sessions.  


Both nurseries are fortunate enough to have their own fantastic outdoor space where the children have constant access to so many inspirational resources and activities  such as fairy homes, rope swings, a mud kitchen, a tyre playground, a real Jeep, a waterwall and a huge sand pit! We are also just a short walk away from local woodlands where children venture every week to experience a woodland environment on a greater scale.





All our food is lovingly home made by Sue and Zoe  our fantastic cooks.  They have taken every consideration to ensure that meals are healthy and provide a balanced diet. The breakfast and snacks we provide are all taken from the Food Trust's, Eat Better Start Better programme.
