A Family Centered Early Learning Community
Welcome to New Discoveries Playschool!
At New Discoveries we embrace the importance of positive relationships, support and most of all, family. Modern families need specialized support that adjusts, flexes, and innovates at the speed of life while remaining stable and grounded in basic and unchanging humans needs.
At each child’s core is a unique individual with special talents and
abilities. Our multifaceted philosophy intertwines the most recent research in child development and good old-fashioned fun, exploration, warm relationships and activity that are important in preparing foundational success factors!
Children want to explore and learn about the world around them. We
believe that a responsible child care program must provide a nurturing
environment filled with comforts as well as stimulating new
experiences. In fact we have our own definition for the word “responsible.”
New Discoveries Playschool Definition of Responsibility:
[Response – Ability]
1. A teacher’s ability to respond to the developmental, emotional, psychological & physical needs of a child.
2. A program’s ability to respond to
others needs by sharing our collective expertise with children,
parents, co-workers, and community.
We strive to be a place where responsibility is a purposeful intention that plays out in words, thoughts and deeds. New Discoveries believes in partnering with parents by offering a long-term, consistent
parenting support with your child's enrollment. This includes free annual developmental screenings,
parent requested trainings and conferences, and ongoing parent/teacher conferences. In short, our school responds to the needs of your
