Our Approach

Here at Exploring Learning & Fun, we focus on nurturing your child's social and emotional well being while laying the foundation for his/ her education.  We believe in children learning through play, observation, and interaction with others within their peer group. 

We offer a loving, intimate preschool-like atmosphere with attentive care and opportunities for creative development.  Combined with  a great curriculum, planned daily schedule, dedicated teachers and an open line of communication.  Your child will thrive in what we are proud to say is "Simply one of the best programs around."

"My son has been going to ELF Daycare for three years now and he loves it!  I have  not met more professional, knowledgeable, and caring people.  ELF Daycare has become our family.  My son has learned so much from the ELF Teachers and his personality has really blossomed this past year.  I am especially impressed with all of the precautions ELF has been taking since the pandemic.  I highly recommend ELF Daycare!"
