Explorers Club


Welcome to Explorer Club and Little Explorers!

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

Our well-qualified staff plans a play-based learning environment with opportunities for social interaction, physical development, and enrichment activities.

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 approach to classroom behavior management.

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 Parent Handbook for details about our program and review our Behavior Contract. We appreciate your cooperation and your trust in us.
