by Brent HoveyReporterAurora -- A growing preschool here is doing so well it will open a second facility in Streetsboro.Construction is under way on the $1.8 million, 10,000-square-foot Young Explorers Preschool on Route 43, which will open this summer. Rita and William Scott of Aurora said business at their Aurora location on East Garfield Road has been so successful, it is time to expand to other areas. They say they also plan to open up another preschool in either Kent or Stow in the near future. Young Explorers has been open in Aurora since 2002."We've seen tremendous growth in Streetsboro and the enrollment in its schools, so the time is right," Will Scott said. "We're more of a center than a school, which can serve the children's academic and social needs."Will Scott said what makes Young Explorers different from other preschools is the "homely" atmosphere it provides. The Aurora facility offers hardwood floors with throw rugs and indirect lighting, instead of the normal classroom look, he said. It's something that allows the staff to reach the kids and gives them a better learning experience, according to Will Scott."It looks like home. Our kids get the curriculum to enter kindergarten ahead of other preschools, with their reading, math and social skills," he said. The Streetsboro facility will follow that school district's calendar when it comes to beginning and ending of semesters, said Rita Scott.Young Explorers employs 24 staff members at 59 E. Garfield Road. Will Scott said by the time the Streetsboro school is fully staffed, it will be nearly identical.Currently, 192 youngsters attend the Aurora school and Will Scott expects the same number at the new building. He said there's already a nine-month waiting list for Streetsboro. Young Explores new building will be at 9281 Route 43, almost directly across from City Hall.Will Scott said anyone interested in enrolling their children can phone 330-562-5588 and visit the new location during an open house in the spring.E-mail: bhovey@recordpub.comPhone: 330-688-0088 ext. 3115
