The Little Explorer’s Learning Center and Day Care is a home away from home for many families in the San Antonio community. When your child spends the day with us, it will feel just like home but with a few more “siblings” to enjoy. We are committed to providing quality and compassionate child care for every kid, whether your son or daughter is 6-weeks or 5-years-old.  Our day care facility is designed to not only keep children safe, but also to encourage a sense of imagination, a structure for learning and a space to play. Typically, children who have access to high-quality child care have stronger emotional, social and cognitive development. These early experiences can help children better develop their communication and critical thinking skills because we are teaching them to process information and vocabulary.

At Little Explorer’s Learning Center and Day Care, our rooms are organized by age and each program is tailored to helping your son or daughter reach key milestones. As your child progresses in age, our programs grow with them. For the tiny tots and infants, we’re focused on keeping his or her specific schedules, and helping them develop at their own pace. Beyond the necessary care, we encourage visual stimulation, along with gross and small motor skill activities. From the age of two, we strive to ensure your child has self-confidence and natural curiosity for learning and the environment around them. By age four, your child is participating in hands-on learning activities like morning circle time for discussions, and academic preschool development geared at preparing them for more advanced schooling. Plus, we have after school programs for children in primary school.

With our open door policy, we encourage parents to spend the day alongside their child to experience the creative and conducive environment first-hand. By sitting with your child, you can better understand how they are engaged throughout the day, and witness the various interactions they have with learning, new friends and our friendly staff. By visiting, it also helps the child understand that you have trust in our facility and they can feel safe, and also that you have an interest in what they are learning and doing on a day-to-day basis when you’re at work. They can feel a sense of pride to show you what they do, who their friends are and how well they behave.

Our mission is to provide you and your family with affordable, safe and warm child care that leaves you with peace-of-mind.

Because of this, your child will only partake in activities that are right for their maturation. Once he or she is able to perform tasks and express himself or herself in the correct developmental stage, we can then progress to the next stages and further advance their skills. Our care professionals closely follow and ensure every child meets the appropriate development domain for his or her age group.

By using imaginative play and stimulating learning experiences, our preschool is designed to provide your child with a solid basis for learning. Through our educational structure, your son or daughter will be able to improve vocabulary, follow directions and respond to questions. Our attentive care providers are focused on preparing your child for primary school by building a strong foundation in:

  • Expressive arts for personal and social development that includes singing and sounds, different mediums for art and role-playing
  • Communication, language and literacy skills through story telling, discussion and vocabulary exercises
  • Understanding the world around them through outdoor activities, using the five senses and comprehending daily structures
  • Healthy eating and physical activities to develop motor skills, basic hygiene and expend energy
  • Mathematics and science-based learning for body parts, counting, sorting physical objects and identifying material properties and more

After School Programs At Little Explorer's Learning Center & Day Care


Because your day doesn’t finish at the same time as your child’s, a high-quality, affordable after school care facility is necessary for those extra hours in between. While our day-time programs allow for children up to the age of five, the Little Explorer’s Learning Center and Day Care also offers after school care for those elementary school children who are in kindergarten or older. We offer these services because even though school is over, kids still need a welcoming space that keeps them engaged mentally, physically and creatively. Our learning center provides a safe, healthy space for continuous development. It is designed to keep your child active through play, learning and a variety of experiences.

Our highly trained staff can help your child with homework and further reinforce ideas and concepts learned in school that day. By utilizing our learning center, children get the additional support and one-on-one tutoring they need, while leaving more time for families to be together at home. For some, extra attention and help with literacy, reading or writing, and mathematics can make a huge difference in school performance overall, and build confidence and self-esteem that is critical to continued success. Our learning center is intended to promote your child’s natural inclinations whether in writing, art, science or other programs that help them cultivate lifelong interests and skills.

Through creative expression, your child can let their imagination run wild and explore their active mind in a way that is right for them. We encourage your son or daughter to explore themes and topics that inspire him or her, and think critically about scenarios, problems and associated details. After school, kids need a healthy snack to keep their brain activity going, and physical exercise to release stored energy and emotions. Not only do we provide these critical health needs, but we also provide a strong sense of community. From sharing activities and building character, your child will be part of a community that enhances their social and behavioral skills. For those with a younger sibling at the facility, it also is a great way to keep them together and foster their relationship further.

Whether you have one child, or multiple children in our learning center, our staff is focused on providing quality care and attention to every child. We ensure they are highly trained to teach your children, and encourage their continued education and growth for constant program improvement.
