Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The staff at Discoveryland makes a concerted effort to provide reliable preschool and child care services and to provide loving, nurturing care for each child. Our goal is to work as a team with parents, sharing ideas and concerns about the growth and development of their children in our care. We believe that every child is a unique, special, and creative individual of great value designed for a specific purpose by God. By providing a warm, secure environment, we hope to develop within each child a feeling of self-esteem. Because children profit from the opportunity to make choices, every effort is put forth to give each child the chance to move about in an environment which offers many attractive, interesting and stimulating experiences. Thus, through an individualized response to the environment each child becomes a well-rounded human being capable of choices appropriate to personal needs and the ability to develop in all areas of growth—spiritual, emotional, social, physical, intellectual, and creative."
