General School Mission

Play is the work of children. Through play, they learn and grow. Between the ages of two and five, children are forming many basic social skills and attitudes. Each child is unique, and they develop at their own rate.

Discovery Parent Child Preschool provides a developmentally appropriate environment where the child learns while having fun. Play is one of the most important experiences of childhood. Through play, children develop physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.

At Discovery, children learn and play in a warm, respectful environment and have many different activities from which to choose.
