Our mission is to partner with parents in the total development of their children by providing active learning experiences and socialization in a warm and secure Christian environment.
THE DISCOVERY PRESCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
Children learn best through play! Engaging play is the central component of each classroom. Our nurturing environment lets children grow at their own pace. Activities foster learning by discovery, exploration, observation and experimentation. Teachers give thoughtful guidance and positive direction to build the social and communication skills of each child. A well-planned curriculum with age appropriate academics encourages cognitive development and critical thinking to lay a foundation for lifetime learning. Children are exposed to God’s love, Bible stories and Christian values. Love, patience and respect for one another are at the heart of who we are.
