Afterschool Adventures

Traveling is one of the best ways to learn. With Afterschool Adventures we travel the world through hands-on experiences and a one of a kind enrichment curriculum. As part of this experience, our explorers relate back to their own culture and heritage to discover what makes them a unique global citizen. At the end of the year, explorers will have visited the great wonders of the world, tasted food from around the globe, played games from other countries, and learned to view themselves as an integral part of the continued growth of our global community. Our aim is to instill the love of exploration, adventure, and learning. Did we mention we provide homework help?

World Explorers Presents:
Tough Talks Podcast

Welcome to the World Explorers podcast‑a kid-friendly space where experts gather to inspire and equip families, communities and better yet, the planet to have those tough, often taboo, timely conversations about life. At World Explorers, we encourage children to have a love for the planet and all its people. We are inviting you to be part of a village that values diversity, inclusion, empathy, and health and wellness, so that you and your children can not only thrive but prosper in an increasingly complex world. So sit back and buckle up as we set out to explore some rather “tough talks” that will give you the confidence you need to start a series of healthy conversations with your child today. We're on all major podcast platforms!

SOME CLOSING WORDS: THE EXPLORER JOURNAL

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE WE'RE HERE IN 2022 BEGINNING OUR THIRD YEAR OF PROGRAMS IN GREENVILLE, SC. NOT ONLY BEGINNING A NEW YEAR, BUT OUR FIRST YEAR WITH A LICENSED FULL-DAY PRESCHOOL. A DREAM REALIZED.


WHAT HAS 2 YEARS OF GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT, THE PROVERBIAL "BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS," AND HARD WORK ACCOMPLISHED? WE HAVE A FULLY REALIZED SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM THAT HAS ALREADY EXPANDED TO OUR FULL AGE RANGE (2-11), A NOW FULLY LICENSED PRESCHOOL FOR OUR YOUNG EXPLORERS (IN THE HEARD OF DOWNTOWN GREENVILLE), AND A GROWING COMMUNITY PROGRAM THAT FEATURES AFFORDABLE DROP OFF CHILDCARE AND COMMUNITY EVENTS THAT REACH HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES.


I'D SAY "BUILDING THE PLANE WHILE FLYING IT" DOESN'T PRODUCE BAD RESULTS. IS IT A HARD PROCESS? ABSOLUTELY. ARE WE STILL PUTTING PARTS ON THE PLANE? SURE ARE! BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE HAVE AN ESTABLISHED PROGRAM THAT REACHES OUT TO OUR COMMUNITY TO BUILD CULTURAL CONNECTIONS ACROSS ALL BOUNDARIES THROUGH OUR CHILDREN. WE REACH THEM THROUGH PLAY AND TEACHING THEM HOW TO BE GOOD GLOBAL CITIZENS WITH EACH OTHER, AT HOME, AND IN THEIR COMMUNITY. DON'T BE FOOLED; THEIR COMMUNITY IS JUST AS LARGE AS OURS AS ADULTS. THEIR EYES ARE WIDE AND THEIR MINDS ARE OPEN. THEY ARE THE GENERATION OF CHANGE.

LET'S SHOW THEM NOW HOW TO EXPLORE AND BECOME THAT CHANGE.

SEE YOU SOON, GREENVILLE EXPLORER FAMILIES,

-MR JON
