Come in and let your children explore our original concept play space that will engage their curiosity and senses for 1.5 hours. Exceptional Explorers is a concept created by two mothers in the Livingston, NJ community. As an Occupational Therapist and Speech Language Pathologist, our goal was to create a clean and welcoming space where children can learn and explore in a fun and safe environment, while parents can socialize or finally finish off that report guilt free. We offer many options to enrich your child’s day:
Travelers in Training – our Mommy & Me program. For the price of open play you get to take a 30 minute class with other moms and their babies. Each week the class will focus on an aspect of speech and language or motor development. Tips and strategies to foster language growth and motor progress will be discussed and modeled, moms will get to try exercises with their babies, parents will get to interact and share their experiences in a conductive setting, and carryover ideas will be provided at conclusion of each class at Exceptional Explorers. Ideal for babies 6 to 24 months.
Storytime at EE – a part of open play. Come join us every Monday at 11 am and Wednesday at 9 am as we read a story to your little one! Each class will focus on a specific language component or skill that will be modeled by our instructor. Reading tips and carryover suggestions for home will be provided during the classes! Simply register for the one of the time slots, participation is optional.
Sensory Classes – Have your kids make a mess at our place! Classes will alternate between creating slime with various components to create different textures and sensory bottles with different mixtures for various effects.
Craft around the World – Come travel the world with us through our Arts & Crafts classes. Visit a new country each week and take home a self made souvenir. Each class includes 45 minutes of open play.
Robotics Classes – Exceptional Explorers is excited to announce our adventure into the world of STEM. We are offering a STEM enrichment program based on either LEGO WeDo or the LEGO EV3 robotics system depending on the age group. In partnership with X-RobotX Robotics, this curriculum will help kids develop critical thinking skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math all while improving communication and creativity skills. Our six-week program will feature a weekly hour class with an additional 30 mins of free play in our play space.
