I am the owner, Ashley Alva. My passion is creating a foundation that will encourage a lasting love for learning. I am a child Development professional and worked with children for over 14 years! I have four boys that I was able to raise at home while I ran my in-home daycare from 2008-2020. I offer high-quality care which includes a lot of love and comfort. We also teach practical skills such as gardening, cooking, baking, and much more! We encourage all family traditions into our program. We know the importance of family values and we love to include them into our curriculum. We teach each child about responsibility and give them small tasks daily. These important lessons will create a Strong Foundation for a bright future.
We lean towards a Montessori approach: Keeping a rotation of projects and activities within arms’ reach of the children and we are constantly creating new activities that engage each age group to learn and grow from.
Little Explorers Preschool values the importance of supporting children in developing their social emotional skills for which all higher-level thinking is built upon.
By encouraging our students to reflect and be present throughout the day promotes self-regulation and problem solving skills. We as a whole implement these practices in exploratory ways in addition to organized experiences to promote mindfulness.
These will bring a lot of benefits to their upbringing that include: a boost of self esteem, developing confidence, enhances focus, promotes compassion, builds upon happiness, introduces empathy, and so much more!
Providing quality education, care, and a nurturing environment for students and staff by utilizing culturally appropriate practices.
To provide a safe, developmentally, inclusive environment for all students. Our main focus is to provide a stimulating early learning and exceptional child care experience which promotes each child’s social/emotional and physical development.
