Experience our Unique Philosophy

At Little Explorers preschool in Riverside, we strongly believe in the power of imagination and discovery in optimizing the early childhood learning experience.  This poem by the founder of the Reggio-Emilia approach beautifully conveys the important roles imagination and discovery play in early childhood learning. Play Based Early Childhood Education focuses on protecting children from becoming subjected too early to institutionalized doctrines which often make learning a chore rather than an extension of natural curiosity.


       "The child is made of one hundred.

The child has

a hundred languages

a hundred hands

a hundred thoughts

a hundred ways of thinking

of playing, of speaking.


A hundred.


Always a hundred

ways of listening

of marveling, of loving

a hundred joys

for singing and understanding

a hundred worlds

to discover

a hundred worlds

to invent

a hundred worlds

to dream...."

The Little Explorers Preschool Difference

We have had a professional team with highly extensive training in early childhood education design an educational curriculum that provides some structure but allows your child to imagine and create in accordance with their personal interests and strengths.


All of our teachers are highly trained in early childhood education so that the best quality is ensured to execute our curriculum to the children


Our developmental curriculum allows your child to learn through a High Scope play-based creative model


We are a Locally Owned and family operated child care facility. Unlike corporate daycares, we add a personal touch to your child’s care when you become a part of our preschool family.

Our owners of Little Explorers have young children of their own from age toddler to elementary grade school. They understand the challenges parents face in providing the best learning environment during the early childhood years and are dedicated in offering a high quality preschool program. 


We have developed an enrichment program that will enhance learning in areas that include music, dance, art and language immersion. 


Safety is one of our highest priorities. We have security technology to enter our facility and security cameras and alarms systems in place. Every employer at the preschool is also trained in child safety and CPR.


Little Explorers offers parent education evenings and other community events throughout the year so that parents are fully engaged in the development and intellectual progression of their child.
