Raising Explorers is a Multi Award Winning Unique Out Of School Learning Club and Ofsted Registered Childcare Centre based in the famous Carlisle Business Centre in Manningham, Bradford. Established since 2012, with the key aim to revolutionise the services available to young children aged between 5-15, parents and the community.


Working closely with schools and educational institutions, we continue to add a new dimension to Out Of School Services, Out Of School Learning and Out Of School Education in Bradford. By merging both extra-curricular and religious education in a unique but highly effective way. We have handpicked a team of the most experienced and passionate tutors to develop an Educational Curriculum that will truly ensure your child reaches their true potential. Our warm, welcoming and nurturing team consists of dedicated and qualified teachers, childcare staff and support staff with many years of combined experience in caring for children as well as educating them to a very high standard.

Raising Explorers children can access 6 key services as part of our Out Of School Club that we have embedded into our weekly timetable here at the centre:

We want to raise the next generation of young adults with a personality that wants to explore and keep exploring until they reach their own potential in whatever they seek to do in life and most of all enjoy doing.  We believe every child is an explorer and we want to help bring out that explorer from within.  This includes catering for those parents with children who have special needs. We believe in working closely with our parents to find a solution to cater for their child the best we can.

We feel that just like every child has a right to in-school education, they also have an equal right to receive similar support and resources in a comfortable Out Of School setting that will complement their in school learning. While caring for your child we feel we can also support them academically in ways that truly will make a difference by using proven teaching models from across the world.

Raising Explorers introduces a new and fresh approach to Out Of School Learning, one in which we want no child to ever consider Out Of School Studies to be a chore but rather something they look forward to and enjoy.



To provide all our children with academic and character-building skills, so they grow up to be well rounded confident individuals ready to positively contribute to a forever changing society and succeed as the next generation of leaders in their communities


Our vision is:


Raising Explorers Centre aims:

Every child should have the opportunity to achieve the best that they can.  The Raising Explorers steps to success are the following

Raising Standards

We have defined clear and measurable expectations for academic achievement and character development. Parents, children and teachers work together to achieve and reinforce the love of learning. We then support through formal and informal rewards and consequences for both academic effort and behaviour.

Parental Commitment

We expect that all parents who made a decision for their children to be at the centre to make and uphold commitment to each other; to put in the time and effort to achieve success by reinforcing what we teach in their home environment.

Emphasis on Achievement

We observe and note each child’s progress and focus on achievement. We want to develop in our students the love of learning and hence holistically prepare them to compete at the highest academic and social level.
