Now more than ever, the kids that learn and play at Explorations V need your help.

Did you know that admissions and memberships only make up 50% of what we need to bring a high-quality learning experience to 50,000 people each year?  Did you know that 25% of our attendance is free or reduced as we work with strategic partners to bring learning experiences to low-income families?

Don’t let kids miss out on learning their way – the best way – through play!
