Welcome to Lafayette Explorers Preschool 

For young children, meaningful and long-lasting learning requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work. This is best accomplished through purposeful play facilitated by highly intentional teaching practices.

The Goals of our Curriculum

The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners and form friendships. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts.

We allow children to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for them. We establish good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of self; making a difference in the rest of their lives.

The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give the children a successful start in school
