About us


Exploration Station provides children ages 2.9-8 years a place to explore, imagine, discover and create in a safe and inspiring environment.



At Exploration Station, children are enriched in a science and art-filled environment where they learn about the world around them. Teachers guide students with love and compassion while encouraging independence, exploration, and discovery in our indoor and outdoor classrooms. 


About Melanie:

"I graduated from UMass Amherst in 2000 with a BA degree in Art/Science Elementary Education. I have been living in Nantucket since 2002 with my husband. Since then, I have created programs for children of all ages. My original program was Cosmic Creations which offered educational birthday parties and after-school classes. I also started Seafari Girls, which is a summer day camp program for girls ages 6-9 years. In 2012, I opened Exploration Station as a culmination of all my programs and a location for them to run. In my free time, I like to travel the world and enjoy outdoor adventures with my husband.
