About Discovery House
Discovery House Day Care Center is a wonderful loving environment that provides children with a strong foundation to grow and learn with confidence and success. The center opened in 1975 by a mother and daughter team.
We believe that children absorb more information between the ages of 18 months to 6 years than they do the remainder of their lives. Discovery House teachers and staff aspire to be a large part of that development. Learning should be a fun and rewarding experience.
Discovery House DCC is an organization comprised of early childhood professionals who are committed to providing a safe and loving environment for children. The Lead Teachers are highly qualified with degrees in the field of Early Childhood Education.
Ages Served: 18 months through 12 years
Our Toddlers are called the Pumpkins. The Pumpkin Patch Program is for children between the ages of 18 months and 36 months. The Pumpkins thrive in the Pumpkin Patch where they feel secure, express their drive to learn, and build their competence levels.
The Busy Bees Program is for our 3 – 4 year olds. The goal in this classroom is to encourage each child to learn positive social/emotional behaviors through fun fingerplays, songs, stories, and role playing. They are learning how to have friends and appropriate ways to respond and act toward other classmates.
We are so excited to have the opportunity to work with your 4- 5 year old child and to be on a team with you. We know what your child needs to be prepared for kindergarten next year. We know that together with parents involvement, we will make the year of growth and discovery for your child special.
Our Before and After school age program operates during the school year providing child-care for children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade. We provide before school care from 6:30 am until school begins each day and after school care until 6:00 pm Monday through Friday.
I am writing this letter to give my personal recommendation to Discovery House Day Care Center and to share a few of my personal experiences. My son attended Discovery House for 5 years. The first day I dropped him off I was at ease that he would be safe and happy. He made a lot of new friends and learned so many skills that have assisted him in school. It has been years since he was there and yet he still talks about his very first teacher he had there, Ms Taryn. She is absolutely wonderful and still one of his favorites! I remember one of the things I was first impressed with was that Kathy Farrell, the Director, knew every kid by name! Kathy really cares about each and every child. A friend recommended Discovery House Day Care Center to me and I recommend it to everyone who is looking for more than just a day care for his or her children. It is the best!T.N. , Kettering, OH
If you are looking for a perfect setting for your child I highly recommend Discovery House Day Care. My daughter went there since she was 18 months old. They potty trained her, she learned social skills at an early age, and she was prepped from the first day she started to get ready for kindergarten. Kathy the director became like family to her. My daughter is now older and is not in Daycare, but Kathy still calls to check up on her and see what’s new and exciting in her life. I couldn’t have asked for a better and safer place to take my daughter every day!!Trisha Lamb , Kettering, OH
My son has been at Discovery House since he turned 18 months old — more than 4 years now, and our experience there has been amazing. He’s starting kindergarten this fall, and to say he is ready is a vast understatement. They have taught him the academic and social skills that I, as a working mom, haven’t had the time or ability to teach him. He has never NOT wanted to go to DH — he is always happy to go and disappointed when we arrive to pick him up. If your child WANTS to be at his daycare, that’s a sign of all good things. The preschool teacher, Leah, has been AWESOME with him, and since he’s in his 2nd year of preschool (due to a late birthday), she has given him the extra work he needs to keep him engaged and to truly ready him for kindergarten. If you are looking for quality childcare in Kettering, I cannot recommend DH enough!Mindy Claggett , Kettering, OH
