No, the cost of Junior Explorers is based on how many days your child attends. If you wish to stay before or after, you may pay by the hour or buy a package of hours at a discounted rate.

No, unfortunately due to the ratio of staffing, bus costs, and activities, we have made Junior Explorers Club as affordable as possible. There are sibling discounts for Kids Garden hourly rates for before and after hours.

We offer a small complimentary snack upon arrival. There are many preferences and restrictions, therefore we encourage parents to purchase prepaid dollars for their child/children. Junior Explorers Club has a healthy concession area where a variety of snacks may be purchased for $1 each.
