Explorers Academy’s services do not start and end with children. With the belief that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, we work to make parents the best teachers possible.
We make this happen by employing eight incredible Family Advocates. Each Advocate serves the families of children in several classrooms.
These professionals provide families with referrals to community resources in areas such as emergency assistance, educational opportunities, parenting classes, employment training, and counseling.
Family Partnership Agreements are created with each family. These agreements identify and build upon family strengths and interests to work towards family generated goals. Family Advocates maintain regular contact with parents to provide on-going support as they assist families with achieving their goals. They meet with parents in the home, in the community, or at one of the Explorers Academy sites.
