The Discovery Centeris a certified and accredited traditional preschool program for children 3 to 5 years of age, providing a loving and nurturing first school experience.  Our mission is to provide a preschool program that will nurture a child’s individuality, creativity and spirituality.  A theme-based curriculum paired with child-centered, hands-on learning experiences and a supportive staff of dedicated teachers serves to develop confident, creative and compassionate children. We celebrate diversity and welcome all families to come and see what we have to offer!

We currently offer the following programs:

  • Our “Frog” class is a wonderful introductory preschool experience for children up to age 3 1/2.  This class meets three mornings per week (Tuesday, Wednesday and  Thursday) from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
  • Our “Butterfly” class is designed to help prepare children for Kindergarten and meets four mornings a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) from 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. This class is appropriate for children up to age 5 1/2 years of age.

 Our Goal:

It is the goal of our preschool to provide high quality care and education in a safe and nurturing environment to all children in our community regardless of race, religion or ethnic background. The Discovery Center embraces the developmental philosophy of learning, which respects each child as a unique individual, and supports the knowledge that young children learn best through play and hands-on experiences. In addition, we help children obtain necessary social skills through friendship development and cooperative group learning opportunities. We strive to have your child develop a healthy, positive sense of self by encouraging independance and providing plenty of  praise and support.

Our Curriculum:

Both classes in our school offer children opportunities for integrated learning through dramatic play, science and discovery, math, literature and pre-writing , artistic expression and music and movement. Our facility provides ample space for preschool classrooms as well as access to outdoor play, a kitchen for special projects and a gymnasium for active play during inclement weather.
