Our Environment

At Discovery House we know that the first five years of life are critical. During these formative years, young children must be loved and nurtured, both in their social and physical environments. If these needs are met, children will feel that they belong, and be encouraged to explore and learn. A quality environment is well planned and invites children to learn and grow. Here at Discovery House DCC the environment provides a neat, clean, orderly physical setting, organized into activity centers and they are oriented to the child’s age level. Activities planned by the caregivers are developmentally appropriate and allow for imaginative play. Play opportunities that enhance children’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development are another indicator of high quality programs.

A key aspect of providing a good environment for children is the safety of the setting. Child care staff members are vigilant in their supervision of the children at all times. The child care provider knows what to do in case of an emergency and know how to reach the parents when necessary. Sanitary procedures such as hand washing and local licensing standards are followed consistently at the center. In addition, the center provides adequate lighting, temperature, and noise control to contribute to a safe and nurturing environment.

Here are some key interest centers for children to play and explore in the classrooms:

  • Creative Dramatic Play Centers
  • Music/Movement Castle Playroom
  • Sand/Water Play Tables
  • Science Centers
