Short ProfileEarly childhood education, caring for the whole child
ProfileExplore + Discover is an innovative Early Learning Center for Infants & Toddlers. They provide an environment in which a highly professional staff ensure that children are able to thrive as confident, creative learners. They are committed to social learning and a responsive curriculum tailored to the mind’s eye of each child. Their model provides the basis for their child-emergent and arts-centric curriculum; each classroom is specifically geared to fuel the creative learning process for infants & toddlers. They provide care for children 3 months to 3 years old.
The Explore + Discover approach focuses on professional staff, social learning, a beautiful facility and a vibrant parent community—the bedrock of a great experience for their youngest children.
The foundation of their approach is respect. For inspiration they look to two distinct approaches to early childhood education and care: Magda Gerber’s Educaring approach (commonly known as the RIE approach) and the Reggio Emilia approach.
RIE® (Resources for Infant Educarers) is a California based organization which promotes the work and thought of child expert Magda Gerber and her mentor, the Hungarian Pediatrician Emmi Pikler.
Reggio Emilia is a town in Northern Italy renowned for high quality preschools and infant toddler centers.
Explore + Discover offers rolling admissions year-round (pending space availability). They welcome and encourage all interested parties to inquire about setting up a visit with their Director, or simply stop by at your convenience!
