I also agree that the statement about keeping the child sick to charge for that day is incorrect due to the fact that you pay by the week no matter how many days your child attends.

In my opinion this daycare is one of the best. I reccomend this to any parent looking for childcare. They are very caring and clean with the children. They give great reports at the end of the day about how your child was and what they did and ate. So thank you Young Explorers for doing your job like every other child care facility should.

My son went to this school for a year and loved it! Teachers and staff were always attentive and loving to my son. I loved the fact that the school was always clean and organized. I visited over 6 daycares before picking this one – other daycares/schools were crammed and smelled stuffy which I made me question the care that my son would receive. I was referred by a friend to this school and have since referred other friends. I am expecting and baby soon and she will also be attending Young Explorers. Someone posted about your child being held sick all day to charge for that day?? Like any other daycare you pay for the week weather you child is there a day or two… so the statement is inaccurate. My experience was always a positive one – I got calls when he was sick and when he got hurt and an injury report. My son has Mrs. Brenda and she was wonderful! Definitely an asset to the school! In the short time my son was there he blossomed and it was all thanks to her amazing teaching skills and her fun and loving nature.

Hello lovely parents let me give you a shocking surprise Young explores doesn't not care about your child only of the fact that they get your money it's sad to say if your child has a fever it would take the front office most of the day to call to charge you the whole day how do I know because I've worked there and I'm not writing this because I left no its because I wouldn't want to be in ur shoes as a parent and my child not receive thE care your paying for

We enrolled our daughter into this school after researching and visiting several day care and home care options.  The staff at Young Explorers is absolutely wonderful, and knows every child and parent by name.  Our daughter, who is not yet 2, loves her teachers and leaps into their arms each morning when we drop her off.  As a parent, it is comforting to know that our little girl is well cared for and is learning in a wonderful and safe environment.

This daycare is the nicest one yet! My daughter has experienced a total of 3 daycares in her life and she is not even 3 years old just yet! Young Explorers is amazing in there teaching skills, and exspecially the staff. TALK ABOUT TLC!!! Every teacher or assistant there is understanding and full of love towards the children. My daughter always tells me everything she does at school and what she eats. I have seen a big difference in my 2 year olds speech and motor skills. I would not go to any other daycare ever!!! I highly suggest this school to any parents who wants to see their little seeds grow to be smart and happy! I would give this daycare 10 stars, but it only says 5! I want to thank all of the staff members and the owners for this awesome school.
