About us

Time to explore run weekly classes for 2-5 year old children (younger siblings welcome!)  and parties for 3-8 year olds. Our aim is to provide a fun, lively and interactive experience for children with a variety of games, music and make believe. 

The weekly class will explore a different topic each week in a fun and educational way. The topics have been developed in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. We provide an enabling environment which will support children to learn and develop through play based activities.


It will also gently teach children social skills such as taking turns, listening, following instructions and joining in. Games are designed to support their physical development through movement and handling whilst building their confidence in a group.


With children fully engaged  in the games the grown-ups are able to sit back and enjoy a free hot drink or look after your younger child at one of our classes or a good catch up with friends at one of our parties.

My story

I have a wealth of experience working with children in a variety of roles across nurseries, primary schools and charities both in the UK and overseas. 

With young children of my own, as well as having run a successful childcare business, I spent many years exploring the world of children's classes and parties.

Feeling there wasn't a class that offered a fully interactive exciting experience for children of mixed ages, while allowing the grown ups to sit back, relax and enjoy a cup of tea, or look after their younger child I decided to start my own !


Drawing on my experience of working with children and parents as well as being a mum myself, I developed Time to explore... It is a unique kind of class/party that is jam packed with games, physical activity, silly music and of course with a huge emphasis on FUN.

When not developing new topics for Time to explore... I can be found exploring the woods with Little Foxes Forest School - North Bristol's first outdoor nursery and preschool.
