Discover Little Explorers

Shalfleet Little Explorers is set in the rural location of Shalfleet Church of England school; and offers a full range of childcare services. Our dedicated team of staff, overseen by Shalfleet C of E Primary School, work continually to maintain the excellent level of care for your children and this is confirmed by our Ofsted report which received GOOD in all areas. 

As we are set in the school grounds it ensures a happy and seamless transition from the Pre-school into the Reception year ensuring that each individuals child’s needs are met. The liaison with Shalfleet Early Years Foundation Stage is excellent with the pre-school sharing the outside space and resources. This partnership is mutually beneficial, enabling a sharing of expertise and a seamless transfer when the children are ready to start school.
