2017-2018 Fall Registration Now Open!

(Fall registration deadline June 30, 2017)

Welcome To Explorer Club
And Little Explorers, Parents!


Before or after school, your child can enjoy a fun, engaging, nurturing, and safe environment at Lakes International's child care program.

Our well-qualified staff plans a themed curriculum with opportunities for social interaction, physical development, and educational activities. Often, the staff plans special in-house activities or off-site field trips.

Committed to the development and excellence of the whole child, Explorer Club School-Age Care and Little Explorers Preschool Care echo LILA's learning goals, language immersion philosophy, and Responsive Classroom behavior management approach.

Little Explorers provides onsite care for students in preschool at the Annex, located at the Main Campus across the street from the elementary school building. Explorer Club provides onsite care for grades K-5 at the Main Campus.

We understand how busy your days can be. Most of us are parents, too. We work very hard to create safe and positive experiences for your child. Please read the Explorer Club Parent Handbook (PDF) for important details about our program. We appreciate your cooperation and your trust in us.
