Preschool program

Exploration Station’s preschool program runs Monday–Friday 8:30 – 2:00 with a maximum of 12 children ages 2.9 – 5.

The class is led by 2 experienced and licensed preschool teachers who hold advanced degrees in childhood development.

Our indoor and outdoor classrooms are enriched with a variety of science-themed activities and includes many ways for students to explore in engineering and building. Within our bright and colorful space, there are endless opportunities for creative, imaginative play which encourages curiosity, creative thinking and problem solving. These skills are essential for developing brains and serve as a solid foundation for building blocks of learning. We also focus on acquiring positive social skills with an introduction to academics. which both come naturally in our education-infused environment. 

Students participate in a structured daily schedule that includes a free choice time, circle, directed learning, outdoor play, story time and both snack and lunch daily. We center many of our themes around the seasons and focus much of our work around science and art.

Throughout the week students go on several field trips around the island. We visit many parks, forests, playgrounds and sometimes local community centers such as the Community Music School.

Our high energy teachers use songs and group games throughout the day to make learning fun and exciting. Graduating students move forward from our small learning environment into kindergarten with a strong sense

of confidence, individuality and the ability to function within

a larger classroom.
