The curriculum is based on the current State Standards and Indicators of High Quality, so that your children are on par or ahead of other children their age! We guarantee that your child will receive a top-of-the-line educational experience! Little Explorers is a licensed daycare and preschool facility, in which all of the guidelines and requirements for licensed child care centers in NJ are followed, and a copy of the manual is on site.  We began as a home-based center and still maintain the same close knit, family-oriented values.  ​

"As a child, one has that magical capacity to move among the many eras of the earth; to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unself- consciously to the soughing of the trees."

Valerie Andrews, A Passion for this Earth
