We bring a slice of the animal kingdom direct to your child incorporating animal encounters adapted to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). ADO is already well known for our large range of our own collection of animals and these will be available at all times for the Mini Explorers Preschool.
We have over 50 species of animals ranging from invertebrates (mini-beasts), reptiles, small and large mammals. These 'Creature Teachers' will work with our staff to give the Mini-Explorer children interactive, engaging and fun new learning opportunities all adapted right in line with the EYFS.
Our venue at the Explorers Garden also incorporates many additional features encouraging the local wildlife to be found and to be studied at close hand.
♦ We have our main ADO birdtable and a number of other bird feeding stations placed around the garden.
♦ Mini-beast hotels and houses to encourage invertebrates are also found in various positions within the garden.
♦ We have butterfly and ladybird feeder stations placed near our wildflower meadow area.
♦ Our garden has been planted with many species of flowers and shrubs that encourage willdife to flourish and visit.
♦ The children will be able to go on bug hunts within our bug zone wood piles
