Acres of Space To Roam
and Play In Our Outdoor Recreation Areas

Whether your little ones wish to explore the plants in our fruit grove, interact with insects in our garden or run, jump and climb in our enclosed play area with their friends, we provide acres of space for them to exercise and roam to their hearts’ content!

Getting Your Little Ones
Ready for Kindergarten With Our HighScope Curriculum

The HighScope Curriculum used in our classrooms allows pre-kindergarteners to learn about the fundamentals of math, science, and literacy while making their own decisions, cooperating with their peers, and quickly absorbing knowledge through play. We believe this is the best possible curriculum to prepare them for their entry into a formal kindergarten environment.

The Montessori Method
Shapes Well-Rounded,
Vibrant Personalities

We follow the Montessori Method in our teaching style to ensure that your children are learning in the most conducive atmosphere possible. This method’s core principles include treating students with respect, showing them how to be independent, providing necessary resources, and encouraging active exploration.

Enriching Recreational
Activities Develop Fine Motor Skills and the Left Brain

Encouraging kids to express their creativity is just as important as setting them up with the necessary academic skills to succeed in a more formal kindergarten environment. Enriching activities such as yoga, dance, art, singing, music, Spanish, and more are offered daily in our programming to stimulate the left brain and help your children sharpen their fine motor skills.

Nutritious Breakfast,
Lunch, Snacks, and
Beverages Provided Daily

Just because food is healthy, doesn’t mean that it needs to taste bland! We serve a delicious breakfast and lunch daily, made from the highest-quality ingredients and free of nuts, dyes, or preservatives. Snacks and beverages are also included.

Positive Thinking and Gratitude Are Encouraged At Every Turn

It can be all too easy for kids to get caught up in the action of daily life and forget how lucky they are to be surrounded by their loving family and friends. Grace is said before every meal, and we make it a point to incorporate gratitude concepts into our daily programming.

We Implement Over 30 Environmental Best Practices
To Keep Your Kids Safe

Our teaching team is conscious of the fact that water, air quality and other factors can have a significant impact on kids’ health. We are proudly Eco-Healthy Child Care® Certified and adhere to a list of environmental best practices such as avoiding PVC toys, using toxin-free cleaning supplies, and more in our facility.

parent reviews

"We love Exploring Minds"
I have had my pre-k child here since she was 6 months. We love Exploring Minds and they spend time actually teaching, doing art, playing, and supporting the kids, as well as providing community resources to parents.

"The staff and teachers do a great job"
We love this cozy little center. The staff and teachers do a great job of staying organized with activities that the kids actually make or participate in. They have focused daily lessons at circle time. They accommodate our transportation needs by taking our child and picking him up from his pre-K program. They also provide transportation to many other full and half day school programs. The program is truly affordable unlike most and I feel like they do just as much with the kids if not more. Our community should help this place thrive; It has been a part of the community for a very long time. It may not be brand new, but they are well established.

"The staff & administration are all very trustworthy"
My kids have been coming here since 2014, & they all have enjoyed it here. They have loved all of their teachers & have been well taken care of by all the staff over the years. The staff & administration are all very trustworthy, & I've never had a problem with leaving my children here. I highly recommend enrolling your kids here as the curriculum is outstanding, especially when entering kindergarten, & at an affordable price.
