Multi Purpose Room
Ages one and up rotate on a schedule to the multi- purpose room. This room is divided into 4 sections: Library for storytime, Computer stations, manipulative/sensory station, & Games and Puzzles. Classrooms rotate into this child-directed learning time.
Our art room is guided by a teacher and the project is related to the theme of the week. Children create using many mediums; fingerpaint, feathers, sponges, watercolors, chalk, fruit stamping to name just a few!
Our art room is also a concrete storm shelter located in the lower level to keep us all safe should the need arise.

Security is a priority. . .
Security is a priority to you and to us as well. There is a secured entryway along with cameras throughout. Our doors are always locked and every parent is given an entry code upon registration. Visitors need to ring the doorbell for entry. If someone other than a parent is picking up your child, A photo Id is required. Parents need to leave a note or call ahead before we will release your child.
Your child's safety is very important to us. Discovery offers closed circuit cameras in each room, they are not internet accessible. Parents can schedule an appointment to view their child's class.
