There is an energy at Discovery Village that can only be experienced by visiting. Listen in as the 3-year-olds sing and dance in the play area. Engage with our two-year-olds as they explore their environment and learn classroom routines. Be inspired by the pre-kindergarten class as they explore their world using scientific methods – the joy of learning in action! The experience of Discovery Village is inspiring on many levels but none of it would be possible without our incredible team of teachers.
The classrooms are arranged by learning centers: blocks, dramatic play, manipulatives, language, math, science, art, sensory table, literacy, and writing. Teachers work with small groups or individuals on specific skills, such as counting or pre-writing activities.Get Set for School is the core curriculum focusing on: Readiness and Writing, Language and Literacy, and Numbers and Math. The curriculum model incorporates traditional circle time for group instruction; topics covered during circle time vary but include age-appropriate versions of: daily duties, alphabet, calendar, weather, numbers/counting, sharing, story time, comprehension question and answer, and music. Spanish is integrated into the core curriculum of our 3 year-old, 4-year-old and pre-kindergarten programs. We have a large indoor playground developed by PlayTime™ and a fenced outdoor playground for dramatic play and physical activity each day.
The goal of Discovery Village Preschool is to prepare children academically for kindergarten and provide an environment that builds both self confidence and empathy for others. The curriculum is designed to:
- Provide an environment in which the child feels safe and relaxed
- Help foster a sense of independence
- Guide positive relationships with peers and adults
- Develop cognitive skills and critical thinking
- Foster each child’s love of learning
Potty training is not a requirement to attend Discovery Village Preschool.
