Our Staff

At the Exploration Station, we take pride in the role we play in children's lives. Our teachers thrive on encouraging creativity and fostering new discoveries made by our students. You'll find our staff to be fearless of paint in their hair or dirt on their hands. We find inspiration in walking hand in hand with our students on their learning journey. All of our staff members dedicate themselves to enrich each and every student's exploration experience.
