ABOUT EARLY EXPLORERS PRESCHOOL

  • EARLY EXPLORERS, a Parent Aware 4-Star Rated Program, is a caring, warm and happy place for preschoolers to learn and grow. Our preschool offers an expanded traditional curriculum in a preK-4 setting. This means learning beyond the traditional preschool room! To prepare for Kindergarten and beyond, your child will be oriented to the amenities of our elementary school - art, music, gym, media center, outdoor STEAM exploration, and a hot lunch option for full-day preschool.

    SAFETY The safety of our students is most important. Our building is monitored with security cameras and has a locked/secure buzz-in entry for families. We also have access to a licensed school nurse and a full time school resource officer.

    ONSITE EXTENDED DAYCARE Located in the same building as Early Explorers Preschool, Early Ed-Ventures Extended Care is a program designed to provide a safe and positive environment when extra care is needed. This is a great option for families that wish to have their child in preschool but may have difficulty with transportation and/or care before or after preschool. Your child must be enrolled in Early Explorers Preschool for this option.

    PARENT PARTNERS We have a vibrant and active Early Learning Services PTO. This dedicated group of parents is critical for understanding the needs of our families. They serve on many levels to include organizing the annual Fall Craft and Gift Boutique fundraiser. Follow the ELS PTO Facebook page for current events and information.
