Team Building Events Like Movie Nights, Murder Mysteries, and Even Axe Throwing

The team that plays together stays together. We are continuously looking for fun new ways to get together outside of the school so that we can connect and let loose. Going to the movies, paint nights, bowling, and fun dinners together boost our collective mood, and we are always looking for something fun to do!

Hear What Teachers Have To Say

"I moved out of state and moved back, and found myself at the doors of First Discovery rejoining the family."

One of the things about being a mom that’s hard is the feeling of missing out on seeing your little one grow. Being a part of the First Discovery Family has allowed me to watch my daughter make friends, learn, laugh, and grow all while having a career for myself. I’ve been a part of the FD Family for six years. I moved out of state and moved back, and found myself at the doors of First Discovery rejoining the family. It’s not just a career anymore, it’s a home away from home. And if you’re lucky like me, you even get to work alongside your best friend!

"I never imagined I would be entering a company that I would see as my forever home."

When I began my journey with First Discovery back in 2011 as a part time Teacher Assistant, I never imagined I would be entering a company that I would see as my forever home. Instantly there is a tight knit family feel that just captivates you and makes you feel a part of something bigger than just a day-to-day job. First Discovery is a place of opportunities; I grew from Teachers Assistant, to Preschool Lead, and up the ladder to Assistant Director to Marketing Coordinator and now Business Director. FD allows you to grow and we want to grow with you! Set aside the family aspect, you look around FD and you’ll find teachers from any classroom talking, sharing stories, and sharing laughs with our families no matter the classroom. I couldn’t imagine not being at First Discovery, a place that truly cares about you and your well-being.

"I love that I get to know and greet every child and parent that is a part of our First Discovery family."

I joined the First Discovery team in 2014, from day one I instantly felt there was a different vibe that I’ve never felt before at a child development center. I was welcomed to the team and everyone was very warm and friendly and that feeling never faded. I noticed that the feeling of family was very present amongst the staff and parents and I knew joining this team was the best decision. I joined First Discovery as an assistant teacher and grew to be a lead teacher in the Infant program, when the opportunity became available to become a Director for a new center in Newport News I knew that I wanted to be the one to help make this new center be an extended family of Virginia Beach. I wanted to be able to give my employees and families the same feeling I have had since day one. I love that I get to know and greet every child and parent that is a part of our First Discovery family. I look forward to visiting the classrooms and seeing all the wonderful activities the kids are engaged in daily. We give our teachers the freedom of enhancing the curriculum, taking our program to a greater level than most. When I see our kids crying as they are heading home because they don’t want to leave for the day I know we are running a very unique and amazing program. Here at First Discovery we are family first, are you ready to join the Dream Team?
