“Mini Explorers is a fabulous place, created with so much love and true passion for children's fun and development. My little mini explorer loves this place and we both have so much fun together role-playing and experiencing all the different areas of the village. Thank you for creating such a wonderful experience for little ones all over Gloucestershire.”
