Mini-Explorers Win Again!

Top 20 UK Nursery Winners!

For the third consecutive year, The ADO Mini-Explorers Preschool has been nominated and then awarded a place in the Top 20 UK Nurseries for being the most highly recommended by Daynurseries.co.uk in association with Bamboo Childcare.  The annual awards are peer reviewed and this year competition was tough with a few 'big boys' in the mix, including franchises like Monkey Puzzle, but we were one of three nurseries in the Borough of Bexley to make the Top 20 in the whole region of London. 

A big well done to the team down at the Explorers Garden for yet another award to be proud of and another certificate to be framed on the wall.
