World of Discovery was established in January 2021 with a commitment to combine quality childcare with excellence in early childhood education. WOD is devoted to satisfying the diverse needs of families within our community. We approach this by providing optimal opportunities for learning and the highest standard of child-inspired and professionally nurtured care at our center.
We are currently enrolling children, ages 18 months to 12 years in various programs from Toddlers, Twos, Pre-K, Before and Aftercare, and our amazing Summer Program!
We believe that all children are born with exceptional abilities which emerge when immersed in learning environments that celebrate their individuality, foster their curiosity, encourage their critical thinking skills and their creativity.
WOD’s STEAM program introduces the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics in all areas of our curriculum including an emphasis on the cognitive, physical, and social-emotional domains of development. Through project-based, inquiry-driven activities, the children explore and discover the world around them while learning literacy, problem-solving skills, and collaboration techniques.
Our highly skilled staff, small class sizes, low student-to-teacher ratios, language-rich, stimulating surroundings, age-appropriate curricula, and nurturing teachers make World of Discovery a place your child will never want to leave. We warmly encourage you to connect with us to learn more about how your child can thrive in this safe and engaging learning environment! We can’t wait to meet you!
Our Toddler Program provides your child with opportunities to explore their new environment while learning through play and building independence. Our teachers work together to ensure your toddler is reaching important milestones such as potty training and language development.
Your preschooler will be given more freedom to explore interest-based activities in WOD’s Preschool Program. Our learning centers are designed to give your child the tools needed to learn social skills, independence, confidence, and acquire the necessary skills for kindergarten.
Our convenient Before and After Care Programs are available to any school-age child who needs care before school starts, after school, or when your child’s school is closed for a holiday or break. This program gives your child the opportunity to unwind before their day starts or before going home in a comfortable, safe environment.
WOD’s inclusive Summer Program offers your school-age child amazing experiences in subjects like Art, Music, Spanish, Yoga, STEAM. The program also includes fun-filled field trips! Field trips include pumpkin patches, dramatic performances, educational experiences, and other exciting activities.
Our hope for The World of Discovery is to cultivate a community full of wonder, dreams, and possibilities: a unique place where we value diversity and progressive education based on research.
This vision guides our beliefs about how children learn and give charity to our curriculum expectations.
The curriculum begins with a strong image of the child. Our curriculum uses a contextual, constructivist approach to education. By contextual, we mean that children learn information in a meaningful way – in the context of their daily lives and current experiences…
In out toddler classroom, children develop their independence through fun learning experiences as they build valuable skills, they need to interact with the world around them. Patient, caring teachers guide toddlers through playful exploration while helping to establish crucial social-emotional skills.
World of Discovery’s mission is to provide state of the art early childhood education that recognizes and respects the rights of children, teachers, and families.
We at World of Discovery are moving into the future to enhance the positive and professional relationships within the community. Our mission is to cultivate a community which respects and nurtures the rights of the learner in an environment that fosters life-long learning through collaboration, compassion, creativity, wonder, and curiosity.
We are committed to a mutually respectful, supportive, and relaxing way of working and being together to create the best possible learning environment for our children and their families
In our collaboration, we will:
Children will have the opportunity to practice yoga in a fun way. The class will be a fun mixture of animal poses, art, music, breathing and relaxation that is age appropriate. This active and playful yoga session encourages self-expression, sensory and motor development, and building social skills.
Having fun, connecting to each other, and doing simple breathing exercises are all part of this class. At this age, when children are sponges, we teach them simple and fun yoga poses. Adding features such as art, music, ecology, math, reading and more, the children have a chance to practice their social skills, connect with others as well as increasing strength, flexibility, sensory and motor skills.
In all our early education programs, we teach a curriculum founded on the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics, into every learning experience. We want our little learners to develop and grow so they can navigate the world successfully. That’s why we use STEAM to build and teach 21st century skills (the 4 Cs):
Because young children learn best through active participation, all these concepts and skills are learned through exploration, investigation, play, and focused intentional teaching. By making connections between diverse skills and concepts across learning domains, we support children in becoming critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and innovators.
An important part of World of Discovery curriculum is exposing the children to many and varied experiences within the community. Staff and teachers will introduce special activities throughout the week including yoga, music, STEAM and more.
In addition, field trips are built into the school year. Parents will be informed of field trips in advance through newsletters and a permission form will be sent home that is signed for each trip. A general permission consent form is also provided with your enrollment form for walks. Children will be transported by a certified bus company that meets the regulations of Department of Transportation.
