One of the standout features of Raising Explorers is their emphasis on structured yet flexible routines. Daily activities are thoughtfully designed to encourage creativity, curiosity, and social interaction. Our child eagerly looked forward to each day, excited about the diverse range of activities that included playtime, educational games, and even nap time in cosy, dedicated spaces.

My son attends Raising Explorers on the HAF program and he loves it. He’s made loads of friends. The girls on arrival are very polite and interact with the kids. Atmosphere is great. Information is available on the walls of all the things they do. My son will always be attending the holiday clubs and hopefully homework clubs in the future. Since the HAF program has started I’ve also registered him in the weekend madrassa.he’s enjoying this aswel. Great place and very professional. Thanks to everyone and keep it up guys.

I was an ex student and I can say from my experience this is the place that really helped me a lot with madrasah and academic learning I would a honestly recommend this place Super friendly and welcoming
Abu Zahr
Student
My daughter has been attending Raising Explorers for nearly a year, and I can honestly say that Raising Explorers is a brilliant after-school club and madrassa. The staff are very professional, friendly and welcoming, they will keep parents/carers informed of child's development etc and provide feedback on overall progression which is always good to have. My daughter settled in very well and loves attending Raising Explorers, she has learned a lot and is excelling in her Islamic studies. I would recommend this place to friends and family.
Safah
Parent
My grandsons have been attending Raising Explorers for over 2 years now. They had learning needs that weren’t being met in a regular madrasah. The staff (especially Khalil), has tried different approaches to meet their needs and I have seen great progress in their learning. They have guided and mentored the children in a caring and professional manner. The children find the environment relaxed and friendly and are very happy attending. Highly recommend to anyone looking for quality child care.
Afraj Sheir

Absolutely amazing service, as a single parent things can get difficult but at raising explorers there is a lot of support provided and i know my child is learning in a safe environment. The staff have been so friendly and welcoming, Thank you also to Abu Mustafa for helping make the transition so smooth.
Kiran Jabeen
Parent
I absolutely love this place and the staff. It has a very homey feeling. I know that my children are personally taken care of. It was the first time that my kids didn’t complain about going to Madrassah, instead they come home everyday and telling me what they have learnt. I would recommend Raising Explorers to anyone that is looking for quality care and great prices! Also the great welcoming owner of the place who’s always trying his best to support parents with difficult circumstances.
Eman Ahmed
Parent
Raising explorers is the first madrassa that I know that has incorporated a school environment into Islamic teaching. My son studies Quran, Islamic studies and Arabic. I know that my son is safe and respected as an individual. The teachers reward when a child has done well which is very encouraging for the child. Since attending Raising Explorers, my son has become confident about who he is, what he believes and why his faith is important to him - this is the most important thing for me.
Sabiha Khaliq
Parent
First time visit. Passionate and friendly manager and staff were polite. My son is looking forward to going again, he really warmed to the environment and the timetable was so action packed. So grateful that this is a service we can use location wise, reasonably priced and flexible too.
Nargis Nasreen
Parent
Quite simply THE BEST. My daughter started here 5 months ago and has come a long way in her Islamic education and Quran especially coming with very little or no tajweed when she started . She absolutely loves going here due to the friendly and welcoming learning environment. Every single one of the staff member here is extremely helpful and will go above and beyond to help your child whether it's childcare , madrassah or homework support. I must mention that Awais ( Abu Mustafa) and his team especially Khalil, Imam Abdur Rahman and all the rest will always be there for you . These guys are doing a great job and really making a difference. I wish them all the best and success . Highly recommend this place!

This is an amazing centre. Managed and staffed by people who are understanding, caring, empathic and very supportive of children and their families. This is a nurturing environment where children develop and grow in strength. Moving them towards achieving goals and aspirations. Each child is treated uniquely and staff will go the extra mile to ensure everyone is treated with kindness and respect. Definitely a wonderful place where your child will be happy and thrive.
Aafza Mirza

Raising Explorers just as the name suggests is a wonderful place for our children to grow, learn and succeed in life. Not only does it cater for children’s needs but also provide a sense of belonging and community for the parents and adults alike. Their quality of service is excellent all round, from the equipment and programs they provide, to offering a helping hand to one and all. No better definition than a Home away from Home. Keep up the good work Team RE 👍😊.
Shazmin Kassam

Aamena Hussain

A safe and friendly educational and fun service which I have been a part of for almost 3 years. It is sensitive to the needs of the community. As a single parent, it has been an essential after school service so I can continue to work with a peace of mind that my children are being taken care of to a high standard. Keep up the good work.
Hajra Ahmed

A brilliant setting for children of all ages. The staff are warm, welcoming and accommodating. The centre is well equipped throughout and provides a variety of activities for children to get involved in on a daily basis. The staff at RE work hard at providing educational play and structured learning activities to help develop & nurture children. There are also lots of creative activities, trips and visits organised during the holidays. I would highly recommend RE to any parent.
Mahmoona B
Parent
The service is geared around filling a gap in the lives of working people who need a childcare centre that provides multiple services in one setting. This is what makes them unique and the best place for any child needing after school care.

Khurm Mehzar

Both my children have been attending Raising Explorers for the past 18 months. I have noticed a huge difference in both of them. The academic support has helped them tremendously. Staff are approachable and always eager to resolve any issues (if any!). The hours suit working parents, it is Ofsted registered and there is plenty going on through the holidays to keep the children entertained. The whole RE’s team are awesome, keep it up guys
Shahida Hussain

I joined Raising Explorers about 18 Months ago but I have to say that this is the best environment to be in. Because when I started Raising Explorers I was on Grade “U” and now I am achieving a Grade “9” thanks to the RE team.

Raising Explorers is the best childcare centre. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Raising Explorers is a warm, welcoming and friendly environment for all children. The staff are amazing. JazakAllah Khair to Abu Mustafa and Shepa for your support.
Sameena Bi Ali

Raising Explorers is Ofsted registered which shows it must be unique in its approach to delivering excellent services whilst maintaining the children's welfare. Top notch Islamic studies, fantastic child care provision and holiday club. My daughter has been attending almost over a year and she has excelled in her Arabic reading and learning. I have seen a massive improvement in her confidence and ability to work on her own initiative. May Allah reward you for all your hard work and keep you steadfast in the coming. Amazing staff all around. Jazakallah.
Nussrat Iqbal

Amazing place! My son has been attending for a while now and loves it. The staff are so friendly and interact well with the children. There’s a range of activities and fun stuff to do and my son happily goes every day. Lovely Islamic atmosphere with a great balance between deen and dunya. My son has a smile on his face when he enters and leaves. This is reassuring for me as a parent to know my son is happy, safe and enjoying himself. I would highly recommend this place. Keep up the good work.

Not sure where to start! Alhamdulillah my prayers have been answered. Raising Explorers is exactly what me and my husband were looking for. We registered our son today and we are super excited for him. Aweis really has put his all in this place and we pray that the institute grows stronger.
Aysha Ibrahim

Truly a pioneering place of great inspiration for children as well as adults. The staff are so accommodating and their compassion echoes throughout the work they conduct and how they cater for the individual needs of each child and parent. I cannot recommend this establishment enough. Keep up the fantastic work.
Tanzeela Javed
Parent
Absolutely wonderful establishment. I have visited a few times and the staff are so friendly and great with children. It is great to see something like this available as in my days there was nothing. The kids will truly benefit and parents by sending them there. It is a gem in the community and had I been living within the vicinity I would definitely send my kids.
Ahmed Kafeel
Parent
Today was my daughters first day at Raising Explorers, they loved it! Even though they were there for 4 hours, they said it flew by. The teachers have a very child friendly approach and make learning fun, so it's not your typical madrasah environment, it is much more interactive and student focused. Thank you Raising Explorers! Wish I found out about you sooner.
Fozia Ahmed
Parent
I love this place, the first place I only feel comfortable with outside of my home. Staff are great, very helpful, caring and we all trust this place. I can't thank Abu, and Ishy and co enough for all their efforts. A rare gem in the heart of our community.
Shifa Zia

Could not recommend Raising Explorers anymore - it is a homely childcare provider. My children love the staff, love the holiday activities, and as a parent I know they are in the best of hands for childcare and their studies.
