Welcome to the Explorers (Age 0-2’s)

The Kate Greenaway Baby Nest is where we support children under two to learn and develop. Because children at this age need greater adult support and input we have a ratio of at least one adult to every three children at all times.

The under two’s have access to a wide range of activities including heuristic play, sharing songs and stories and a wide range of sensory experiences.
