Our program is dedicated to the education and early childhood development of the children in our community from the ages of two years and nine months to five years. The children benefit from a staff ratio of 6 to 1.

We offer a full age-appropriate educational curriculum. Our classroom atmosphere stimulates and promotes positive experiences for successful learning in a safe, secure and encouraging environment.

Your child’s day includes blockbuilding, arts and crafts, storytime, fingerplays, puzzles, and songs. Through the use of games, manipulative equipments, and physical exercise, the children are encouraged to actively participate in all areas enhancing their learning experience.

A special music progam is incorporated into our daily schedule. Health and safety, as well as listening skills and language development, are also integrated into the daily learning process.

Discovering Me offers both a full-day program as well as a half-day program. We are in operation twelve months a year. September through June is our regular school program. Summer camp is available in July and August.

  • Full-day Program: 7:30 am – 5:30 pm
  • Half-day Program: either 8:45 am – 11:30 am or 12:30 pm to 3:15 pm
