    Introducing Our NEW Preschool Program!

    We are so excited to announce that in addition to our new building, we are adding a Preschool Program!!! COMING FALL 2019/2020!! Using a teaching method called, The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, this learning environment mirrors what we have been doing at the Junior Explorer Club for years by using nature and beyond when it comes to learning. This method of learning views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them. Working with everyday items like pine cones, rocks, marbles, sticks and more, the children utilize creative play as an introduction to early educational learning. Our full-time program we be available for the Fall 2019/2020 year with part-time options available as well.   FALL 2019/2020* - Accepting deposits only for Fall 2019/2020. Programs will offer full-time and part-time options COMING SOON!! - $275 Deposit for Fall *Must be a Junior Explorer Club Member to enroll. Click here to pay the JEC Membership Fee.
