Early childhood education such as our preschool programs for 2.5 year olds, 3 year olds and 4 year olds has been shown to have long-lasting benefits for children at all different income levels. Attending a high quality preschool program like the ones we offer at Explorations not only offer your child immediate benefits — such as learning to be more independent, exploring new creative horizons through hands-on activities, and making new friends — but even helps kids throughout school and into adulthood: The Huffington Post quotes a study that found that attending a high quality preschool made at-risk children less likely to drop out of school or commit crime.
Preschool is important because of the academic skills children learn — such as math skills, letters and numbers, shapes, colors, art, music and movement, and basic science concepts — but it’s probably equally important because of the “soft skills” children pick up in a nurturing early childhood program. These soft skills are social skills such as being able to control one’s temper, working together, sharing with others, being able to focus on a task, and other skills that set kids up to succeed in school and the workplace.
Explorations Community Preschool is pleased to offer a top-notch preschool curriculum with reasonable tuition fees. We offer Lawrenceville preschool students a place that’s safe, fun and educational. It’s a place for them to spread their wings and explore the world around them. Through working together with their peers and participating in our Community Outreach events to help those less fortunate, our preschool curriculum helps prepare children to be a vital part of their community as well as to succeed in school.
Our preschool programs run year round, so you can enroll at any time during the year as long as space is available.

Is Preschool Tuition Tax Deductible?
We are often asked if our tuition is tax deductible on income tax returns. The answer is that even though private school tuition is not tax deductible, tuition expenses for children who are under kindergarten age and enrolled in preschool usually are deductible as long as the preschool program also counts as child care. Then the Child Tax Care Credit can apply and the cost of your child’s preschool program is deductible. Check with your tax preparer if you have questions about your specific situation.

Explorations Refer-A-Friend Program!
Because we are a small school, we rely on our current families and friends to help spread the word about our amazing preschool programs and help with enrollment. As an incentive, we are offering $100 for each referral that leads to the full time enrollment of a child. We appreciate everyone for your help in this process!
