Since 1991, Dairy Road Discovery Center has been providing quality education in a loving environment to every child who walks through our door; learning by doing is our philosophy! We strive to give every student the opportunity to become involved in the learning process, and to discover the world for themselves.
We provide experiences in library, music, sign language, Spanish, cooking, gardening, dramatics, art, science, and field trips (pre-kindergarten and after-school programs).
Every detail, from our literature-based curriculum to the layout of our five playgrounds, is designed to aid in number and reading readiness and the development of fine and gross motor skills, not to mention fun!
