Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our mission is to allow children to discover, share and celebrate who they are and what they can learn to do independently and with others, while providing an enthusiastic environment for learning and positive self image.

"At Discover & Share, we take the responsibility of delivering the quality early childhood education and nurturing loving care your child deserves.

"Children takes in more information between the ages of one to six years than they do the remainder of their life. Discover & Share wants to be part of that development. Learning should be a happy and rewarding experience. Our learning process is linked with the child's physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs in mind. We have arranged our classrooms to give each child the opportunity to explore language arts, science, math, reading and writing. In addition, our environment provides the tools to develop their social and physical skills, as well as nurture their emotional growth. Our staff is trained in classroom management, positive discipline, and parent/teacher communication, along with many other required courses. We know that parents want the best for their children. At Discover & Share, your child will mature into a fun-filled individual ready, willing and able to take on the world and all it has to offer."
