PRESCHOOL

A hands-on approach to learning not only stimulates creative problem-solving but also supports practical real-life solutions. This form of self-expression allows children the ability to reach their full potential. At Early Explorations Preschool, we spark inspiring play to set forth a blaze of creative individualism.

TESTIMONIALS

The Suits

Great Ex constantly encourages creativity, discovery and exploration. It has given our son the confidence to go into life with an open mind and attitude. The diversity of staff and students allows for the ability to express who he is, every day.

The Crums

Enrolling in Great Ex Pre-K was the best decision we ever made. The teachers are warm, loving, but also strict when they need to be. My daughters development has rapidly grown not only from a problem-solving skillset but also a social aspect, that is invaluable. I’d highly recommend Great Ex for any parent looking for an affordable, enriching and safe environment.

The Holdens

In a world with so much structure, free play is extremely important for us as a family. Great Ex provides a safe environment, where learning through play in a social space opens our sons mind to the possibilities of life. We’d absolutely recommend Great Ex because it encourages growth through new and different experience each time that we come.

The waitlist is open to children once they reach 18 months of age, and we do not admit those younger than 18 months.
