Daycare center



First Discoveries Academy is an Eco-Healthy, Nature-Inspired early childhood program serving children, ages two to twelve years. We have been recognized by the Children's Environmental Health Network for our commitment to creating healthy learning environments for children.

We believe that children deserve to work and play in healthy, engaging classrooms and playgrounds. From nontoxic cleaning supplies to homemade organic meals, nurturing children's healthy development is our top priority. Our large classrooms are filled with sunshine and open space for children to explore. Our outdoor classroom is so much more than a typical playground, with open space to run and play and opportunities for children to engage in many interested experiences, including planting and harvesting in our gardens. Our resident animals include four very gentle Nigerian Dwarf goats.
We know that children learn best in an interesting, engaging environment in which they are challenged and supported each day. We use music, art and play-based activities enhance children's learning and development everyday.
Our program is Christian based, and we use music, art and stories to teach children about God's love for each one of us. God has created an amazing world, and our goal is to help children learn to appreciate it everyday!
We are an inclusive program, serving all God's children. Our teachers have early childhood degrees and specialized training so that we can create positive learning experiences for all children. We have experience working with children with developmental delays, speech/language concerns, autism, sensory processing disorder, and ADD/ADHD.

We currently offer half-day and full-day preschool and VPK, as well as before and after school care. Our amazing summer camp for school aged children includes daily field trips and all meals/snacks. Our VPK Summer Camp has a proven track record of preparing children for kindergarten, while ensuring they have fun all summer long.

We are excited to offer a kindergarten program beginning in the 2015-2016 school year and we will be accepting the McKay Scholarship as well as Step-up Scholarship programs.

Our families love our program and they tell us everyday what a difference our program has made in their children's lives. Visit today so you can learn how we can serve your family.

A lifetime of learning begins with a child's First Discoveries!
