Who We Are
Inspiring Kids, Building Communities:
Young Explorers has been proud to offer compassionate and engaging Montessori education to the families of Streetsboro since August 2007. Streetsboro's town and country appeal make it a great place to raise a family and for a child to have unique learning experiences.
We offer on-site parking for drop-off, pick-up, and visits. Our convenient location offers easy access to SR 14/I 480 or the Ohio Turnpike. Many parents from Streetsboro and the surrounding communities love our location as it is on their commute to work.
The Streetsboro Leadership Team
We love learning. We love the freedom to think big, work together, and take risks.
I am so excited to be a part of the Streetsboro Young Explorers Family! I have been with Young Explorers since August 2017 and have spent the last few years at our Twinsburg school working with all ages. I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Kent State University. I currently live in Mantua with my husband Dillon, and our son Wesley. I love the home-like atmosphere and our values at Young Explorers. I believe the Montessori method is a wonderful way to promote independence with children and helps them flourish with their unique interests and strengths. I would love to show you our school!
I have been a teacher in childcare for the last couple of years, most recently the infant teacher here at Young Explorers Streetsboro. I received my bachelor’s at the University of Akron and have always had a passion for working with children. The best part about working at Young Explorers is the caring environment we strive for to foster these little minds to grow and develop.
Inside Our Streetsboro Location
A welcoming fireplace greets you as you enter our spacious Streetsboro location.
Our classrooms are just as inviting, and are designed to give children an engaging and age-appropriate Montessori experience. For infants, our nursery features warm lighting and a quiet area for cribs and naptime. The toddler classrooms have child-size furnishings and equipment, and a changing and potty area. Preschoolers enjoy en-suite restrooms, built-in window seats and bookcases, and large spaces to explore.
Our Streetsboro location also features a music room and indoor gym for your child to have even more fun while learning.
All of our healthy and nutritious lunches are prepared in-house in our state-of-the-art kitchen.
We proudly meet all relevant health and safety guidelines and standards. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Portage County performs health and building inspections twice annually.
Our Exterior Spaces
Our Streetsboro location features two separate, age-appropriate playgrounds - one for infants and toddlers and another for preschool and school age students. Both playgrounds feature custom-built play equipment. Grassy areas outside the playgrounds allow for outdoor games, splash days, and class picnics. Porches attached to each classroom give children free access to the outdoors, rain or shine.
At Young Explorers, we believe that children need outdoor time to have the freedom to run, climb and have wide open spaces. Our outdoor areas are designed so all students get many opportunities throughout the day for outdoor time.

See what parents and children are saying about Young Explorers!
The teachers and the facilities are outstanding. One of the things that she loves most is playing in the gym and sliding down the large spiral slide. She learns so much and that she gets to interact with children her own age. We also almost didn't look at Young Explorers because we assumed we couldn't afford it, but we are so glad we decided to!

Daughter Paige, 2 years old
Our three year old has become such an intelligent, social child, in part, because of the influence of the staff at Young Explorers. We are confident that our children are in a safe, caring, and enjoyable environment every day, and we feel fortunate that such a wonderful center is so conveniently located for us.

Unlike some other day care centers, the teachers here really do "teach"; each class has a set curriculum and the children are challenged each day to learn and grow. In addition, they take pride in keeping the facility clean and organized, not to mention sanitized.
