Hello, my name is Cathy Varnell and I want to thank you for taking the time to read about Early Explorers Learning Center.

I cannot express enough how excited I am to give the kiddos of Liberty a fun place to make them feel safe, and build a sturdy foundation for their future education. I have made it my mission to assure each and every child receives the finest care I possibly can give, while being part of their early years in life.

Throughout my life, I have had a deep passion for working with all ages of children. I received my Bachelors of Art in Early Childhood Education and have over 30 years of experience working as an early childhood teacher, director, and owner of different childcare settings. I also worked for the Liberty Public Schools as a paraprofessional in the special education department for five years before I had the opportunity to start Early Explorers Learning Center.

My husband Gary and I are busy with our two boys, Jacob and Ben. Jacob attends UMKC for Mechanical Engineering and Ben attends Liberty North High School. My family is supportive of Early Explorer’s Learning Center and knows how much it means to me to give the highest quality care for each child who attends.

I promise to give the preeminent care for each child enrolled in Early Explorers Learning Center and hope they develop and mature to be the finest people in Liberty.
