We believe all early learning comes from the opportunities we give our children to interact with the environment, materials and other children. Explore and More Learning programs provide all three.


The Explore and More Learning Program is a play-based, experiential program that offers a safe environment with quality, appropriate materials that allow children to explore, create and learn in an open-ended way.

Comments From Parents


"We are very lucky to have you as our only daughter's first teacher. Thank you."


"Thank you for the amazing job you are doing with the kids. Our son is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT child at home since attending your program. My husband and I are in awe of the positive changes in his listening, attitude, and, overall behavior...We won't know what to do without you and your staff next year - those will be tough shoes to fill!"


"Thank you! We cannot say enough good things about you, the program and the other teachers. We would recommend the program and will be sending his brother to Explore and More when the time comes."
