Keeping Young Minds Sharp While On Holiday

Your child will keep their mind sharp while they are away from their regular school schedule. Teachers will prepare fun and engaging hands-on activities for the children each day. Children continue to explore themes and activities based on the lesson plans of the Funshine Express, the Creative Curriculum®, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).

Frequent Field Trips and Guest Visitors

Field trips add interest and variety to our regularly scheduled events. Museum visits and trips to the theater make are fun outings that stimulate the mind and make for great group discussions at the end of our day. In-house visitors allow children to meet different community members and experience different cultures and forms of art. Examples of past visitors are African drummers, story-tellers, and fire-fighters (with their truck, of course!)

Clean, Tidy Spaces for
Learning and Fun

Our classrooms and property are kept very clean to keep your child healthy and safe. Classrooms are cleaned by a service every evening after school. Daily classroom cleaning routines are maintained by teachers and by students too. As a way to reinforce practical life skills, children are taught to clean up their own space after play and learning activities. Personal hygiene is also practiced.

Meals and Snacks Provided at No Extra Cost

Your child will dine on a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and proteins to fuel their fun-filled day. Breakfast, lunch, and nutritious snacks are provided every day. Part of your child’s Summer vacation includes wholesome meals that are prepared on-site in our peanut-free facility and follow guidelines for nutrition.

parent reviews

I have two daughters in the school age classroom and I couldn't be more thankful to the center and its staff. My girls did not like where they attended before and I'm thrilled that they love first discovery! They're so excited to experience new things this summer with the awesome summer camp activities that have been planned. Until then, the homework help after school is great and gives me one less thing I have to do when we get home at the end of the day. First discovery is truly an amazing place and I highly recommend it!

First Discovery has been a blessing to my family. I suddenly had found myself being a single parent to my two children and needed after school care for them while I worked. I was hesitant because my daughters did not like the center that they previously attended and I had some bad experiences as well.

“When we came to tour First Discovery we could feel the positive vibe as soon as we got through the front door. My youngest daughter heard her name being called from the school-age classroom and it ended up being her best friend from Tallwood! My children started the next day and it was the best decision I ever made.

They both absolutely love the school-age classroom and it makes me happy that they love it. Instead of them arguing with me because they don’t want to go to an after-school program, now they get upset when they don’t get to stay the whole day. The entire staff is absolutely amazing and I have nothing but positive things to say about the center.

In more ways than one, FDCDC has been more than a blessing to me and my children and we look forward to being a part of the FDCDC family for many years.

The Navarro Family

My daughter has been attending this school for years. Mrs.Victoria the owner is amazing. Mrs. Jenny is the sweetest director. They have great learning curriculum for all ages. The classes are separated but open so every child interacts with all the teachers and for the toddlers and above they interact with all the other students. I'm a single mom and I'm unable to pick up ny child till later so Ms. Taylor and Mrs. Lauren help my daughter with her homework. Ms.Taylor is the school age teacher. I checked out other big known daycares. I didn't like that they had a bunch of teenagers basically taking care of the kids this is not the case all the teachers and staff here are very well educated and carry themselves well. In 4 years I have never encountered a single issue with this daycare. They care for your child as if it were their own.
