Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Childhood is the beginning of a life adventure...a unique discovery of a new Early Exploration into one's self. Our primary goal, at Early Explorations, is to guide your child's natural curiosity by providing an environment s/he will find to be both exciting and caring.

Our teachers will help your child to playfully interact with a variety of learning materials, as well as an equally exciting group of peers. Children learn that a healthy self-concept includes being a valued member of their group. Exploring is so much fun when you can share your new discoveries with a friend!

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Communication with parents is the key element in the success of the child's preschool experience. A calendar of parent events, a handbook, newsletters, weekly lesson plans, and daily posted messages are other ways that keep parents informed. Parents are welcome to visit the school at any time. Early Explorations is committed to knowing the family, which makes us partners in the child's first learning experience.
