At Discovery Preschool children are encouraged to learn, be inventive, and DISCOVER in a safe and nurturing environment. Through an art-based curriculum, each child learns to develop a positive self-image. Discovery provides an open and creative educational environment in which families and teachers cooperate to prepare each child for elementary school.

Children at Discovery gain experience in writing and drawing. They are exposed to science, instructed in good nutrition, and taught personal hygiene. They gain a sense of history, and take field trips within the community. Cooperation, enjoyment, and fun are valued over competition. Discovery Preschool is central to socially and academically preparing each child for kindergarten.

"A love for school and education is our primary goal."

Discovery Preschool: Ripon's unique art-based preschool is the choice of parents...

Our daughter's first school experience, through Discovery Preschool, has laid the foundation for her to become a lifelong learner. Discovery Preschool instills the love of learning and discovery in our child through creative lessons, various learning opportunities, art based activities and free play. She comes home from school full of wonder and curiosity, which spills over into the rest of her day. The teachers provide a nurturing environment that encourages and promotes self discovery. They know our child as an individual and celebrate her successes.

From the moment we stepped into Discovery on orientation night, the teachers made us feel welcome. They take the time to get to know each kid and do an excellent job communicating with us. The teachers always show excitement to see my child and he loves being there. He comes home with awesome art projects and fantastic stories of his friends and all the great stuff they did. The staff, kids and other families have really made us feel like part of a community.
