"Your staff is SUPERB! They are so unbelievably caring; they set expectations for the children that the children strive to reach. Audrey has blossomed over the past 4 years that she has been at your center. Ms. Tonya and Ms. Ann we are forever grateful for the assistance in building Audrey's foundation, they had such a positive influence on us all. What wonderful caring, joyful, thoughtful ladies. Audrey was thrilled to go to school every day, not one day did she ever say I do not want to go. Even on Saturday's she would be disappointed because she didn't get to go to school!!!! Thank you for making our kickoff to Audrey's education a phenomenal experience.....we love them all!!!!"
-Ms. Vicki G., daughter Audrey, 5
“All of the teachers at Young Explorers are so incredibly warm and friendly. I walk in there every day and feel good about where my daughter is. My husband and I are so happy with the strides she’s made in learning a variety of skills. It’s amazing to see her growth in the short time she's been there. I can't imagine her being anywhere else.”

“Young Explorers has provided an amazing learning environment that is both fun and safe for my children. My son has several life-threatening food allergies, and the staff has bent over backwards to keep him safe. Their careful attention to our special needs has brought me much needed peace of mind when I'm away.”
