michelle's explorers family day care is located in San Mateo, California. We opened our doors in 2001 as a home day care.

Over the years, we have incorporated preschool curriculum to enhance the experience for our clients.  We help our children develop social, bilingual, and leadership skills.  Children who experience the entire program leave Michelle's Explorers Kindergarten ready and mostly perform in the top percentages of their classes.


Michelle takes a whole-child approach and uses the natural curiosity of children to teach math, reading and critical thinking skills in a nurturing home environment.  Michelle and staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, emotional, cognitive and academic endeavors of each and every child we serve.

Learning and Growing together

Main goal


We are a large home daycare / home preschool that focuses on differentiation to meet the needs of all students.   Throughout the day, our children will interact in small groups with the teacher, collaborate with their peers, and participate in 1 on 1 focused guided educational support to prepare them for future educational experiences.
