Our story

In 2001 a team of four opened the first Explore Learning centre with the vision to be the best complement to a child’s school education. This was a vibrant learning environment where for a couple of hours a week, children worked on their individual needs, honing skills that they most needed for school, with the support of great tutors. This concept created by entrepreneur Bill Mills, now employs 4000 people, supporting the learning and development of thousands of children in dedicated tuition centres and online.

Explore Learning was born out of a desire to help all parents and children gain access to the benefits of a great education. Parents have a deep-seated need to contribute to their children’s education and to give them the best chance in life.
