Story Explorers is a literacy-based parent/child part-day preschool, open to ages 0 to 5. The preschool experience provides hands-on activities and opportunities to enhance early learning and socialization skills for children. Story Explorers utilizes the DCDEE approved curriculum-Fireflies. Parents are a child's first teacher, therefore it is critical that they play an active role in their child's early learning experiences. Story Explorers offers a time where parents can learn the importance of play in a young child’s development while networking with other families and receiving local resources.
The program is offered at no charge to families living in Carteret County. There is an application process with slots filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Through grant funding, Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics activities are offered to preschool classrooms throughout the county.
