Our Approach To Learning
We want to challenge our children to explore their world, and welcome new experiences that are offered to them from our qualified staff in a child-centered environment. We understand that learning happens through a variety of methods in several important content areas.
Self Discovery and Creativity
This is fundamental for every child. In order to absorb new stimulus from all around, every child must first develop self awareness and confidence. At Explorations, our staff uses planned activities as well as teachable moments to foster personal creative expression, while promoting cooperation and conflict resolution. As children are allowed to be creative through art, dramatic play and music, they begin to build their self-esteem and gain confidence. We understand that part of school success is being able to interact comfortably in a group setting as well as independently.
Each day we plan and implement activities that encourage both fine and gross motor development. We achieve this with a focus on hand-eye coordination, following directions, manipulation of small objects and movement. Our staff is well-trained, and uses many resources to help our children grow from their cores to their fingertips to their toes!
Our program is immersed in language! We start with our youngest children with baby signs, vocabulary and music, and build from there. As they get older, we can introduce curriculum to enhance emergent reading skills. Each teacher understands the importance of language development, and enriches their learning with critical thinking, verbal expression and listening skills.
Math and Science
Children are beginning to develop a mathematical understanding even at a very early age. Science is an integral part of each child's natural world. As our teachers plan creative daily lessons, they incorporate skills that help develop important math and science concepts such as comparing, predicting, reasoning and interpreting. As we integrate math and science into our daily activities, we help our young learners to become problem solvers and critical thinkers.
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, nurturing and enriching environment for your child to learn and grow in. We work very closely with Centerville schools to make sure that we are preparing our children for kindergarten and elementary grades. We provide excellent homework help every day to our school-age students. This is an important priority since our older children are busy with extra curricular evening activities, or just looking for family relaxation time at the end of the day. We make sure that we are prepared to offer quality homework help by attending curriculum-based workshops, and spending time in the different schools with the teachers. It's nice to know that when you pick up your child, the school work is done!
Explorations is not only a fun, safe and social place for a child to thrive, but an excellent educational facility for a child to learn!
