1430 Jerusalem Avenue, Merrick, NY 11566

With a high demand for quality licensed child care services in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Academic Explorers expanded into the North Merrick community in the Fall of 2020 just in time for the beginning of a new school year when many school-age children needed virtual learning support. Our Merrick location offers a more intimate setting with smaller class sizes for children six weeks through 12 years old.
