Welcome to Explorations Preschool and Kindergarten!

This year marks Explorations’ 20th year of operations. From the first day we opened up to the present, we pride ourselves in offering a high quality preschool program that does not waver at trends and societal pressures that insist on early academics. We stand steadfastly for the defense of early childhood through a program that advocates intellectual and socio-emotional development through play and meaningful explorations. Our advocacy has been affirmed through the years with an outpouring of research on the correlation between adult success and early childhood programs like ours.

In the recent years, we have also begun to put more focus on Mindfulness and welcome it as a unique and profound approach to social change. We constantly remind ourselves and each other, and recently have started teaching our students, to be fully present, composed, and to pause before we react to the challenges of our busy lives. As Mindfulness enters the mainstream, we hope to develop a way of living for ourselves and our students that brings focus, kindness, and caring into everything that we do.

Thank you for entrusting your children to us. As your children play and explore, we commit to teaching your children with understanding, consistent fairness, and love.
