Explorers are overflowing with an interest in their surroundings and are able to soak up new experiences like sponges! Our program encourages children to grow in their social awareness, conceptual thinking and communication skills. They become more interested in reading, writing, speaking, mathematics, science, and people in our global world. They build on their Baby and Early Explorer learning experiences.
