Before and After Care
The Explorer Club was created in 2005 to assist South Arbor Academy families with their school age child care needs. The Explorer Club is owned and operated by previous South Arbor parents who understand and support the demands and dynamics of South Arbor Academy. We offer a new flexible enrollment plan that offers parents a choice of supervision for one to five days a week, both morning and afternoon. Our program is dedicated to providing families with a place where their children can thrive in all developmental areas in addition to their school day, on no school days and during the summer. The Explorer Club transports children to and from school by bus. The Explorer Club now offers child care services for Young-5 through 8th grade children South Arbor Academy, East Arbor Academy, Ann Arbor Learning Community, and Milan Schools. Our programs are divided into sessions to accommodate each family's needs.
The Explorer Club fosters connections between home, school and community. The curriculum emphasizes the integration of thought and experience. We utilize the center learning system which focuses on themes and projects that are fun and relate to life. Each program has been designed to meet the needs of the unique and varied developmental levels and ages of the child.
