  • Reviewed by Staff Member on October 27, 2008
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school has a lot of long term, dedicated, experienced staff. The hallways are always filled with wonderful artwork done by the students. The children are always engaged in an educational activity that is directed by the teachers. There is a very low student/teacher ratio so I know each child is receiving the attention they need. I have reseached many other child care establishments and the prices at Children's Discovery are very competitive. I would recommend this school to everyone!
