The Big Explorers are aged two to three years and bursting with enthusiasm and energy. Children are supported as they grow in independence.


They enjoy free access to a wider range of activities and are learning within a fun atmosphere where sand, water and paint are always readily available to encourage children's creativity.


The Big Explorers  thoroughly enjoy singing, dancing and listening to stories which are a vital part of the day as well as early literacy and numeracy activities such as sorting shapes and sizes  which encourage the children's  mathematical and language development.

The Big Explorers

The Big Explorers are developing essential skills which help prepare them for the Nursery Class.


In the Big Explorers our team work closely with you to support your child  with toilet training which enables children  to begin to become independent in the understanding of their own personal hygiene.

" We feel the staff at Poppies do an excellent job in planning activities that stimulate and support children. They're obviously very dedicated and enjoy their work with the children." Mrs. Z (parent)
