Explorers offers school aged childcare for children in grades K-5 and Junior Explorers offers preschool childcare for children ages 3 - 5. School-aged Explorers is offered before and after school and on non-school days. Junior Explorers offers all day care from 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

During the summer, childcare is offered for children 4 years old through incoming 5th grade.  We support families and help children develop to their full potential socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

Our Objectives

  • Offer a safe environment where children are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendships, and grow in confidence, independence and respect for themselves and others.
  • Provide opportunity for children to build positive and enriching relationships with trusted adults.
  • Create opportunities for children to learn and explore through play.

Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. During the school year, minimum enrollment is 2 days per week (days cannot be changed from week to week). During the summer program, minimum enrollment is 10 days throughout the summer.

Junior Explorers and Explorers are high quality childcare programs for children, ages three through fifth grade (school year) and ages 4 through fifth grade (summer). At Explorers, we provide children opportunities to learn through a wide variety of activities such as art, music, science projects, games, writing, reading, crafts, outdoor play, computers, practicing social skills, gym time, dramatic play, and much more! There is a balance of activity options that includes large group, small group, and individual choices.
 
Minnetonka Community Education Explorers programs are 4-Star Rated by Minnesota Childcare Agencies.
