Manager

Explorosity Education is owned and managed by myself, Eleanor Hutton, an Early Years Teacher. I have worked in and with many day nurseries and early years' professionals over the last ten years, each with their own vision of what inspiring and exceptional childcare, teaching and learning would look like. With that in mind, I have developed my own vision and ethos based on various approaches and theories from inspirational figures and settings alongside my own true passion, enthusiasm and love for Early Years teaching and learning.
