We cannot be more happy with Discovery Central Learning Center for our daughter. She started there at 18 months, and I immediately noticed that her vocabulary improved nearly overnight. We love that she is in the habit of saying "please" and "thank you". One day I realized she knew all the days of the week. Alicia is great with the group of them, and the all of the children are so sweet and learn so much from each other. My daughter loves to be dropped off there, and I have the hardest time getting her to leave. I definitely recommend Discovery Central. I feel very blessed to have my daughter enrolled there.

We have been thrilled with the care provided at Discovery Central. Our daughter started at DCL just after her second birthday and we immediately noticed a big change in her behavior. She loves her time at DCL and often wants to stay after the school day ends. We have been very pleased with our daughter's progress since she started at DCL. We also love that there is a large emphasis on outdoor activities and daily trips to the park. Alicia does a fantastic job at incorporating monthly themes into the curriculum, in addition to special activities like a trip to the post office to learn about how the mail works. I would highly recommend DCL.

We have been so pleased with our daughters progress and development while at Discover Central Learning Center. Alicia has a wonderful year round theme based curriculum which allows children of all ages to follow. Our daughter will be 2 in December and she's already well on her way to reciting her ABCs. There is a daily schedule with opportunities to play and learn throughout the day. This was really important to our family as we felt our previous provider lacked this type of structure. Alicia has a great outdoor space for the kids and usually takes then on a walk to the local playgrounds. Our daughter comes home each day with a written summary of the day's activities and she often has a great work of art to add to her collection. Alicia is very organized and gives plenty of notice if there is a change in the schedule. Our daughter enjoys her time at DCLC so much that it's difficult to get her to leave at the end of the day. We feel really lucky that we found Discovery Central Learning Center and that it's so close to home.

Alicia Diduca runs Discovery Learning Center out of her home with the support of her mother Joanne. What makes this family daycare stand out is the combination of professional-level curriculum development and loving attention to each child. My daughter, a 3.5 year old, loves it there and does not want to leave at the end of the day. Each month we receive a letter of carefully planned activities. Yet, along with this structure is flexibility. Alicia accommodates our needs for drop off and pick up times. The kids go to the park almost everyday and sometimes visit special places like the local pizza shop or the post office. Our walls at home are decorated with projects from DLC. Alicia and Joanne provide loving care to the kids, giving them individual attention and organizing group activities. If Alicia or Joanne needs time off, there's always a back up person. It's open during the summer which makes it much easier to plan for childcare all year long. We feel blessed to be a part of this place.
