Everything we do at Young Explorers is built upon our foundation of values


Our newly renovated facility has an amazing interior, allowing ample space for play and exploration while giving our team the room to create a positive environment in which the children can grow each and every day.

Experience and Expertise

We take special care in securing some of the top Early Childhood Educators (ECE’s) in St. John’s. This expertise and their ability to connect with both parents and children provides enhanced nurturing and learning.

Education Curriculum

Our facility uses 'Emergent Curriculum' - one of the best education systems available - which is built into our daily programming. In this way we can focus on connecting with the children in our care while delivering on one of our main values — learning.


Regardless if it’s an issue that arises, or our daily photos of the children, we encourage open communication, allowing us to work as a team to foster and nurture the children to be the best they can be.


We are always looking to make things better, using all the resources available to us to innovate and constantly move forward.
