EXPLORER

(Age 3.6 – 4.9 years)

Children of age for the Explorer program are ready to launch to new heights! They are eager to investigate and explore the world around them while soaking up new knowledge and experiences like sponges. This is a period of enormous growth where the development of conceptual thinking, social awareness, and communication explode.

The explorer program helps to prepare children for success in our Kindergarten program by focusing on:

  • Social-Emotional Development – Cooperation, sharing, group work, peer assistance
  • Creative Development – Story telling, dramatic play, arts and crafts, music
  • Physical Development – Dancing, games, indoor and outdoor play, Brain Gym
  • Academic Prep – Reading, writing, speech, early math, science, and social studies concepts.
