Discovery Learning Center is a warm welcoming environment designed for infants through school aged children. It was purchased in 1979 by Roy and Joan Mills who had moved from the East coast where they had previously operated a preschool for 10 years after Joan had taught grades K-4th grade in the public schools.Roy uses his business background and architectural skills.
Ms Beth, our director, has been with us over 20 years. She has an Elementary Education degree and lots of experience working with children.
We are an Arizona Quality First Daycare participant which is Arizona’s quality improvement and rating system. We are a licensed DES provider.
You will find ample parking at Discovery Learning Center. At the entrance you will also find covered storage for car seats and strollers. Our festive ducks, dressed for the holidays or different seasons, welcome you each morning.
As you begin your tour of our center, through the front gate you will notice many of our animal friends similar to Dino, the dinosaur out front. The most popular are Mzee, the tortoise and Owen the hippopotamus. These characters are in the books of our school library. More animal friends can be found throughout the school.
Two of our three playgrounds have special fall-safety carpet trucked in from the White Mountains. This mulch not only cushions falls, but when fresh, smells wonderful.
In our largest shaded playground, there is room for bike riding, swinging, playing ball and climbing on our “state of the art” climbing equipment. We have interest centers, water tables and a large sandbox. There is also a Western style group of buildings used for storage of outdoor and indoor equipment.
Our shaded Toddler playground has sand and water, tables, slide and climbing equipment. It also has a fall-safety carpet like our large playground. An area is provided for bike riding.
We have shaded playground for our infants so they can go outside every day. Our infants are able to safely crawl and explore on the artificial grass as well as venture into the specially made “Teddy Bear Playhouse” with its own school bell.
