what parents say

“Discovery is like a breath of fresh air in the city! You just attract nice, down to earth people.”

“We’ve visited a lot programs, but your program has the most loving teachers! Everywhere else they tell us how much the kids will know when they leave, but you talk about learning to trust yourself, feeling secure, and having fun! That’s what we want.“

“She had a terrible separation experience and I was so nervous. But she did great here. You guys know what you’re doing!”

“The Discovery Almost on My Own pre-school program has been so much more than a ‘school’ for our daughter. We’ve felt welcomed into a family.”

“Baby Gym is a great, great program!! The instructors go out of their way to make each minute a positive experience. They really make it special.”
