Discovery school was founded in 1959 under the name Ripon Nursery School after the public schools no longer offered a 4-year-old kindergarten program. The first teacher, Mrs. Delores Hunger, and 13 students met in the Episcopal Church hall 5 days a week from 9 am to 11 am. Since then it has grown to include a child care program, more preschool classes, summer preschool programs and summer child care! We are now able to offer the community year round child care from 7am to 5:30pm.
