A high-quality education is one of the most important things that we can provide a child.
Exposure to a variety of topics, people, and adventures all contribute to a fulfilling school experience.
At New Discovery, the warm and secure environment offers a wide variety of programs.
A dedicated staff guides children in learning cooperation, respect for their environment, respect for the rights and feelings of others, and to develop problem solving skills that enhance creativity.
We accomplish this in an atmosphere where staff listen and accept feelings without judgment; children learn about appropriate boundaries and how to make positive behavior choices.
