Lori Lorenz, Owner/Director

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

The owner of Little Explorers Preschool is a resident of Fishers. Lori, the on site owner and director, has over 20 years experience in the preschool field. Lori strongly believes that having been a teacher and a director allows her to know what a successful preschool needs both academically and operationally.  Lori has two children in the Hamilton Southeastern School System, and has experienced first hand what an advantage it is for a child to have a strong social and academic base prior to starting kindergarten.

As an educator, Lori believes in “academic play” 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.

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 wil lead your child!
