EXPLO Mini offers an extended day program for EXPLO Mini students. Students may arrive as early as 7:30 a.m. and eat breakfast at the program. Some families may have commitments that make it difficult for students to return home before dinnertime. To help meet family needs, Mini students are welcome to stay until 6:00 p.m. and eat dinner at the program as long as they have a ride home.

*Students arriving for breakfast or staying for dinner will be charged a small additional fee to cover the cost of the meal.

All fees are in US dollars.

Students enrolling in multiple sessions of EXPLO Mini receive a $20 discount for each subsequent session in which they enroll, after the first session.
