About the Provider


Little Explorer Day Care is state licensed family day care located in the Kettering Community on Joyceton Way. We offer a curriculum for infants, toddlers, preschool and pre-kindergarten. Our approach to educating children is not one size fits all. After conducting a stress free assessment, a curriculum is created for each child based on his or her ability and not just their age. The goal is to create a learning experience that is comfortable, realistic and fun. As each child progresses, he/she will build the necessary confidence and begin to adsorb information and learn at a faster pace.
