Organization Profile

Discovery is a child-centered environment using the Reggio Emilia philosophy to inspire learning. A Reggio Emilia method is an innovative approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong and capable; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. Students’ input, intelligence, and curiosities are honored everyday. We believe students learn through hands-on activities, exploration and natural wonderment. Play is the greatest avenue for learning in early education. Our credentialed staff creates curriculum to provide readiness for Kindergarten through teaching early literacy, number readiness, and social-emotional support. As students graduate our preschool program our goal is for them to leave with a love for learning, skills for inquiring about their curiosities, and social skills, manners, and friendships that will bring confidence to their future.
