Children's Discovery Academy Photo #1 - Serving Families Through the Exceptional Care and Education of Children
You've come to the right spot.  We are in the business of the care and education of young children.
Children's Discovery is an early childhood center.  We have children as young as 6 weeks of age and we care for them all the way through school age.
We just celebrated our 36th anniversary. We're a small company and we're privately owned.
We only have two locations, so again, there's a level of intimacy that we can give to all of our families and all of our parents.
Everybody knows everybody.  Our lead teachers have a four year degree, or the equivalent, in early childhood education.
I think the quality of education that we provide for these children is astounding.
We set the bar for a lot of places.
We meet the needs of each and every child as they come to us.
It's called child care but we definitely educate these young children.
We are a company that truly knows how to care for young children and we have their interest in our heart so come check us out.
