General School Mission

"Discovery School's program follows the philosophy that the first five years of a childs life form the foundation for future development. The purpose of our program is...

To STIMULATE children to develop their full potential

To ALLOW children the freedom to learn at their own pace in an atmosphere of respect and affection

To MOTIVATE children to participate in all phases of a diversified program

To ENHANCE their sensory, motor and perceptual skills, their language ability, their creativity, and their social development

To ENCOURAGE children to experience the joys of learning through the imaginative use of creative materials by caring, well trained staff members
