Jr. Explorer Preschool starts Fall 2019/2020!

We are so excited to open our preschool doors this Fall! We have been spending the summer designing, fixing, painting and decorating our new space, and then we will be ready to fill it with kids!


A few things about our preschool:

Our Philosophy

We are going to be using the Reggio Emilia approach (read last week’s blog to learn more about this educational philosophy). This student-centered, self-directed style of learning focuses on relationship-driven environments and we will spend a lot of time creating and exploring.

Location, location, location

Our new building is on Old Henderson Road, with super quick and easy access to 315, Olentangy River Road and Riverside Drive. There will be days, however, where our Preschoolers will visit our second location at Saint Marks Church which is only 2.3 miles in the heart of Upper Arlington. Our programming offers so many opportunities and we are delighted to utilize the space at Saint Marks as well as our new location for some of our presentations about gardening, cooking, science and more.


Smooth transitions

When your preschooler moves on to kindergarten, they will still be able to be part of our Jr. Explorer by joining our after school and summer programs!


Brothers and sisters

If your preschooler has elementary-aged siblings, they can be in the same space if your older child joins our after-school care. This means they’ll see a familiar face at the end of their day, and you’ll only have to make one stop to fetch your family on your way home.


New kid on the block

Because we are new, we do NOT have a wait list. You can sign up today and be guaranteed a spot for this fall. Click here to sign up for our Fall program.


Programming and field trips

Our programming is legendary. From science club to break dancing to cooking club to swim lessons, our on- and off-site programs will surely enrich and educate your little one when they’re not in school.


No-stress planning

When schools are on holiday breaks, have a day off or are closed due to weather, we are still open! We will be here from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., making sure your kid having a great day off!
