"Everyone makes you feel so welcomed when you walk through those doors and everyone that works there genuinely loves children and wants to see them succeed."
Cannot express my love for FD. The staff, the schedule, the meals, EVERYTHING. Everyone makes you feel so welcomed when you walk through those doors and everyone that works there genuinely loves children and wants to see them succeed. My son loves his teachers and all his friends because they always "party" together! More than pleased to leave my child with people that I know and trust.

"When I got to First Discovery, hubby and I immediately knew that this was where we wanted our son to go to."
While I was pregnant with my son, I searched for daycare centers. When I got to First Discovery, hubby and I immediately knew that this was where we wanted our son to go to. Fast forward over two years later, everyone at FDCDC aren't just our son's teachers and caregivers, they have become our family. We love each and everyone here and our son loves coming here. If anyone is looking for a daycare for their little one(s), look no further. This is the place to go. Hands down.

"All of the teachers and staff are sweet and care for our son like family. I couldn't have found a better place!"
My son is four and loves first discovery. We had him in a few centers before this one and didn't feel like the staff cared for our child. All of the teachers and staff are sweet and care for our son like family. I couldn't have found a better place!
