Explorers Club

Junior Explorers and Explorers Club are high quality childcare programs for children, ages three through fifth grade. At Explorers, we provide children opportunities to learn through a wide variety of activities such as art, music, science projects, cooking, games, writing, reading, crafts, outdoor play, computers, practicing social skills, gym time, dramatic play, and much more! There is a balance of activity options that includes large group, small group, and individual choices.

Minnetonka Community Education childcare programs are NAEYC Accredited and are 4-Star Rated by Minnesota Childcare Agencies. In addition, four of our elementary programs have earned accreditation through MnSACA MAAP. The final two programs are currently completing the process for receiving accreditation this year.
