OVERVIEW OF EXPLORERS PROGRAM

Explorers is a fully licensed, early learning center for active kids, where children rotate through our campus, learning by what children do best, exploring.  Our program is located in the ChampionsTX facility.  This setting allows for a truly unique preschool experience by allowing children to learn and grow while doing what they do best, moving and exploring the world around them.  Children learn through sensory and movement based experiences.  We have placed an emphasis on this style of learning in our classrooms by designing a preschool curriculum that integrates physical play with academic learning.  By keeping children’s bodies active, their minds stay actively engaged for a fun, easier time learning!

Our Mission

It is our mission to take advantage of every teachable moment that happens by fostering the creative, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of our students.  

Our teachers are nurturing and enthusiastic, so that your child feels like their Explorers school is a second home and is inspired every day.  Our teachers are dedicated and passionate about creating environments which support a love for learning and building secure relationships. They all participate in ongoing professional development and are committed to furthering their knowledge in early childhood education.  Our focus is to prepare, educate, and mentor students for a successful primary school education and beyond.

At the Explorers Adventure School we welcome community partners and families to celebrate childhood while embracing active learning.  Our focus is to prepare, educate, and mentor students for a successful primary school education and beyond. It is our mission to take advantage of every teachable moment that happens by fostering the creative, social, intellectual, and emotional development of our students.  A play-based approach provides a child-centered curriculum directed by teachers in which children are encouraged to construct their own knowledge. We believe our program reflects the needs and goals of children and families. We look forward to working closely with families which will provide an integrated, comprehensive approach by learning.  

It is our goal to provide our children with many opportunities to experience all areas of development with the availability of a wide variety of materials and learning experiences.

  • Children will develop respectful behavior for each other and the environment, through pride in work, acceptance of other’s work, and respect for differences as they continue to become autonomous.
  • Children will be supported in letter recognition, writing, and sound/symbol association through books, journals, games, puzzles, songs, and our Handwriting Without Tears curriculum.
  • Children will experience engineering, science, and technology through the use of classroom technology, experiments, free form building materials, books and group discussions.
  • Our objective is to guide children as they continually practice expressing emotions, developing empathetic behaviors, learning appropriate strategies for entering and maintaining play situations, practicing conflict resolution, and strengthening self-discipline and self-confidence.
  • In providing a respectful and empathetic environment we intend to develop a community of learners, who care for one another.

Last but certainly not least, we are committed to ensuring that the children, families, and teachers act as collaborators.  It is through a strong parenting team that children really prosper. Communication and feedback is encouraged daily through opportunities to share information in the morning, the afternoon, on the phone, at parent-teacher conferences, and monthly events.  Monthly newsletters, the @ExplorersAdventureSchool instagram account, and Facebook will further facilitate the exchange of information.

Dear Families,

Thank you so much for your interest in our program!  Our passion at ChampionsTX is helping children grow and develop into even more wonderful versions of themselves.  I love getting to know families and becoming a part of your parenting team, whether you entrust us with your child for 1 or 40+ hours/week!   The Explorers Adventure School at ChampionsTX is a fully licensed, early learning center for active kids, where children rotate through our 24,000 sq. foot campus, learning by what children do best, exploring.  With daily gym, an outdoor classroom, and each age group sharing three themed S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) classrooms, it is a truly unique learning experience for little ones.

Our program is located in the ChampionsTX facility.  This setting allows for a truly unique preschool experience by allowing children to learn and grow while doing what they do best, moving and exploring the world around them.  Children learn through sensory and movement based experiences. We have placed an emphasis on this style of learning in our classrooms by designing a preschool curriculum that integrates physical play with academic learning.

We are a family owned and locally owned and operated company, and our parent company of ChampionsTX has been in business over 23 years serving the families of the West Austin area.  One thing you’ll find by enrolling in our school is that we truly care about your family, and you’ll become a part of the ChampionsTX family. We host parent seminars, Parents’ Night Outs, family events, and through the ChampionsTX campus have many activities and camps that all of the siblings can attend at the same time.   We aim to make your life easier, for your child to love coming here, and for your child to continually become a more well rounded “Champion”! I have a little one myself, live in Bee Cave with my husband and Caroline, and am a frequent visitor to the local parks, library, and restaurants (especially the kid friendly ones!). This school started as a dream of what I want in a school for my daughter, and has gotten better since with the help of amazing teachers and staff.

We know this is a unique preschool program, so we encourage you to email your questions or schedule a visit to come and view our facility.  If you have any more questions, big or small, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Alison Callaway, ChampionsTX Business Manager & Director
