We offer outdoor and indoor learning experiences. Outdoor learning mainly takes place in Buckley, Hi-Knoll, Penzer, and Brydon Lagoon parks. Indoor learning takes place in our facility.
The Schoolhouse has its own separate entrance in our home. It is heated with access to its own bathroom and plenty of natural light. There is a mud kitchen outside the Schoolhouse leading into Langley Science Garden. Desks are spaced, children do not share materials or toys. We do lots of activities in the kitchen as well. Longer programs (4+hrs) such as camps have access to our recreation room as well. The home has Air Conditioning. Our premises is professionally cleaned.
Children get access to Langley Science Garden, a home size garden with a diverse array of plants. We have now documented over 200 plants species from edibles such as peach, apple and hazelnut trees to decorative garden plants. Get updates on our garden by joining our FB group!
Explore Science Club offers nature inspired science enrichment programs for children aged 3-12. We offer annual programs as well as Spring and Summer break care.

ESC was founded by Nehal Saleh, a busy mother of 2 energetic boys. She is a scientist with a PhD that focused on how sensory input effects learning outcomes. Nehal published 4 out of 5 thesis chapters in peer reviewed journals. Her work was a combination of biological assays, chemical identification and software programming. Nehal has also worked as Business Development Manager in a publicly listed antibody company. She has a unique modern multidisciplinary approach to science education which she implements when creating ESC's STEAM curriculum.
Nehal speaks 3 languages (English, Arabic, and French) and has lived in multiple countries such as UK, Sweden, and Egypt. As a proud Canadian, she has also lived in multiple Canadian provinces.
Our made in house programs boost confidence in the sciences while sharpening critical thinking skills and sparking creativity. They nurture the whole child's development while developing important life skills (eg navigating conflicts, cooking) which nurture each child's confidence in their own decision making.
