5* Food Rating


We are delighted to say that we have been awarded 5 stars in our food hygeine rating.


Congratulations Carolyn!


Congratulations to our Carolyn Lees who has completed the training to become our PANCo, Physical and Nutrition Co-ordinator.


The course is designed to look after children's well-being and health through positive nutrition and physical activity. Not many nurseries have a trained PANCo and we very proud to be one of the few.


Well done, Carolyn!

Our Butterflies have started baby yoga. There are many benefits including better sleep, more 'settled' behaviour and better digestion.

We've Been Awarded Millie's Mark!


We are proud to announce that we have been awarded Millie's Mark which is only given to nurseries that have reached excellence in paediatric first aid.


Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, who died after choking on food at a nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old. We have worked incredibly hard to achieve this and it shows that we are going above and beyond the minimum requirements to keep children safe. Mini Explorers is the only Millie's Mark accredited nursery in Sandy and the surrounding area.
