a very important decision, and appreciate your interest in our
1979, Discovery Tree School is well known for its progressive and
developmental approach to learning. We believe that all children
go through predictable stages in their physical, social, emotional
and intellectual growth. However, each child is an individual,
and progresses through each stage at different rates, and at different
ages. Our curriculum encourages this uniqueness by offering multi-age
groupings, a stimulating, hands-on environment, and by allowing
children to make their own choices. This playful, explorative time
is balanced with a teacher-directed small group time, as well as
circle time. At Discovery Tree School, we never underestimate the
power of child's play!
(and deserve) adults in their environment who respect their ability
to create, make decisions, and function independently.
Our staff has achieved a level of education
and training in Early Childhood Education that far exceeds state
licensing requirements. Just as importantly, the Discovery Tree
School staff shares a commitment to our developmental philosophy
as well as a deep understanding of the importance of these early
years. We strive to provide for every child the opportunity to
develop problem-solving skills, tolerance, creativity and a strong
sense of self.
School has an open-door policy and welcomes all visitors. We also
encourage you to bring your child with you to visit our center
-- stay as long as you like!!
