Our Roosevelt center was the first Academic Explorers location opened in March 2017. With a strong reputation and collaborative relationship with the Roosevelt Free Union School District, we have offered the local residents free Universal Pre-K programs for three and four-year-old children as well as high quality infant, toddler, and preschool classes. After school and summer camp programs are also available for school-age children in kindergarten through grade 6.
