About Goodwill Exploration Center
Goodwill Exploration Center can be the next step in the learning journey for you and your little one! Goodwill Exploration Center is a center-based child care facility that provides the families of Austin with a structured, stable learning environment for children to grow and blossom. Center-based early care and education like you’ll find at Goodwill Exploration Center are attractive for parents that want their children to enjoy enriching activities, a strong peer set to bond with, and a community of staff that really value what early education can bring to the lives of children. In addition, Goodwill Exploration Center conveniently proffers a full-time schedule, helpful for busy working parents that want their children to have the best when they need to be apart. Children at Goodwill Exploration Center benefit from the full-time schedule too as the dedicated time to be amongst their peers promotes growth, development and stimulates creativity and learning. The structure during the day gives children many opportunities to be themselves, play, explore, and have all manners of fun, all in a day! In addition, Goodwill Exploration Center teaches a mixed-age curriculum that facilities peer learning and communal growth. In a mixed-age classroom like at Goodwill Exploration Center, students receive open-ended, stimulating activities and are encouraged to move at their own pace. Younger students receive help and encouragement from older students, boosting their confidence and self-esteem, and older students get to lend a helping hand, teaching empathy and the joy of giving. Mixed-age learning replicates the best of a family or neighborhood group structure as children socialize with peers a little ahead or a little behind their own development path.
