DISCOVERY VILLAGE IS UNIQUE!
The care of a village, creativity of an art studio, and discovery of a science lab await children at Discovery Village. Serving children from six weeks to five years, Discovery Village is a premier Childcare Center and Preschool. We provide high quality full-time, year-round childcare and learning.
Classic and contemporary research and experience come alive in our playful approach. Academic, social emotional, physical, and character development is embedded in play and projects stemming from children’s wonder and curiosity. We enhance learning with quality enrichment including Spanish, Sign Language, Art, Science, and so much more. As a result of our thoughtful approach, children are prepared for success and well being in Kindergarten and beyond.
Discovery Village is inspired by impactful educational philosophies of the 20th century – Montessori, Waldorf, and especially Reggio. Building from those approaches, Discovery Village designs anew what is possible in a childcare center.
During the Covid-19 pandemic Discovery Village remained open for families that needed to rely on our care. Those challenging days of crisis brought renewal. We revitalized our approach to learning and care to address the demands and possibilities of our times. Constraints from new health protocols fueled creativity. Protests over racial inequity and injustice deepened our values based learning. Well being and connection to others, both similar and different from ourselves, emerged as core to our program. We committed to being a haven of hope in a world needing healing, yet also filled with wonder and possibility.
