Our Staff



Lori Lorenz

Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Indiana State University

The owner of Little Explorers Preschool is a resident of Fishers for over 20 years. Lori, the on site owner and director, has over 25 years experience in the preschool field. Lori strongly believes that her experiences as a teacher and director allow her to know what a successful preschool needs both academically and operationally.  Lori has two children.  Her daughter is currently at Indiana University in Bloomington studying Exercise Science.  Her son is a Master at Arms in the US Navy Reserves and employed by Hamilton County Corrections.  She strongly believes that the educators and experiences her children were exposed to in their earliest years provided them with a strong foundation academically, socially, and emotionally to not only feel ready for kindergarten, but also to refer to as they entered their adult years.

As an educator, Lori believes in play based learning mixed with real life experiences where children are free to have fun and do what they enjoy; but also encouraged to use organized thought processes and look for lots of different solutions and outcomes.  She feels both large and small group learning opportunities are vital to the development of a child’s collaboration skills and desire to learn from others.

Little Explorers is the fruition of years of dreaming and planning. The owner and staff of Little Explorers can’t wait for you to come join our adventure, and see just where this safari will lead your child!
