Environment

For the young Explorer (18-23 months old), playing and learning are complementary. We understand that toddlers learn best through exploration, experimentation, discovery—and, most of all, fun. Play builds communication and motor skills, and facilitates social-emotional growth. We provide a variety of materials, environments, and activities for enriching playtime. Explorers are naturally hard at work learning important physical skills as they gain muscle control, balance, and coordination. Our activities and educational materials are designed so that every child can explore and expand their physical, social, cognitive, and language abilities based on their individual stages of development. Our Explorers program provides a safe and happy environment for your child to learn to become more independent.

Ratio

Our classroom has a maximum of 8-10 students with 2 teachers in the classroom. Our small class ratios help provide caring supervision of the students so they stay safe while they learn and play.
