Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Kids' Life Discovery Center , a childcare service of Lucas County Health Center , is licensed to meet the physical and developmental needs of up to 135 children from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Trained and educated staff members foster a nurturing environment of acceptance and welcome for all children.
Within the cheerful spacious rooms, children ages 6 weeks to 12 years are encouraged to explore and learn. A wide variety of activities, both structured and unstructured, allow the children to stretch their minds and bodies. Field trips are frequent and specifically geared toward different age groups and capabilities.
Nutritionally balanced tempting meals, including breakfast, lunch and up to two snacks, are planned by a registered dietician and prepared by skilled cooks in the Kids' Life kitchen. Children eat family-style to develop good social skills and table manners.
