My name is Caroline Sakla and I am mommy to two year old Jacob, almost 6 month old Chloe and wifey to Andrew. I am a former educator turned stay-at-home mommy turned Little Explorers founder and Leader. I have a bachelors degree in communications and a masters degree in the arts of teaching. The reason behind the start of Little Explorers is a desire to foster a community for me, my child and my husband. A place where I know my child is safely receiving the social, physical and cognitive development that his little explorer brain requires. Knowing that other mamas strive for the same wishes for their children; I sought to create a place where all this is possible. I also needed Little Explorers for myself. A place to meet like-minded mamas and nurture my friendships and creativity. I have researched many child development curriculums and searched for the best team of leaders to offer our little explorers the most playful learning experiences they desire and deserve. I hope you decide to come play, explore and learn with us and see for yourself. Little Explorers is so much more than just a play space, its a nurturing community.
My name is Mallory Radcliffe and I am the proud Mommy to my amazing daughter and son. I have dedicated my life to education, with a degree in Child and Family Development. I have a mission that is clear, and that is to engage with your children in their earliest years. Just as Dr. Maria Montessori said, "Early childhood education is the key to the betterment of society." And the best way to do that is through PLAY! Your child's little brain is already hard-wired to seek out new information in the most fun way possible, and through many years of combined experience we plan to create an exciting and fluid curriculum your child will not want to miss!
My name is Sammie and I am excited to be a part of the Little Explorers family as a Team Leader! I absolutely love working with children and have been doing so ever since I was a teenager myself, frequently babysitting and helping out wherever younger kids were involved. I have formally worked with children for the past 5 years in many different roles. I gained most of my experience working with the YMCA as a group leader, moving my way up the ranks until I reached the director title where I organized an after school care and outdoor summer camp program. Most recently I taught a lovely bunch of 3-year-olds at Plato Academy. After having my first son I have decided to step away from your typical 9-5 position and find a work-home balance that worked for my family, which is how I found Little Explorers. From the moment I walked in the doors I knew this was where I wanted to be, the atmosphere and guests are so welcoming and I am so happy to be a part of the team!
Hello! My name is Amber Easterday, and I am originally from Dayton, Ohio prior to buzzing down to Sunny Florida. I am a wife and mother of two school-age boys and a baby boy who was born on a boat in 2020!
I have a formal educational background in Early Childhood Education, earning my National CDA and Preschool Director Credential. As an educator, I am truly passionate about seeing those “aha moments” in your child’s eyes. As a child, I remember being shy and didn’t feel noticed. I had a teacher when I was young who took the time to get to know me. Not just as a student but as a person. Ever since, I knew I needed to work with kids to make them feel the same. Once you feel noticed, your eyes open up and your imagination is endless!
I want to be the leader and friend that your child is beyond excited to see because they feel safe and loved.
Prior to joining the team, I spent 10 years as a teacher working with kids, birth to school age. I enjoy creating moments of joy in hosting birthday parties and events as well! I am so excited to bring my experience and create fun and laughter at Little Explorers.
Here at Little Explorers, children will discover that by Bee-lieving in their dreams and thinking outside the box; they can take their imagination anywhere. Discovery is the honey your little bees need. So come play, learn and explore with us.
