We understand...

It’s not easy to leave your child in a new environment, which is why we welcome you to

give us a call and set up an interview to meet our friendly staff. You will also be able to tour the facility where your child will be learning and growing into a bright young adult! We know that once you enter our building, you’ll know our school is the best choice! Feel free to visit anytime.

We are there for your children Monday through Friday year round. In addition to our regular learning programs, free transportation to our local elementary schools.

Mission Statement

Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth comes from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self-esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural strengths. A child sees the world around them with wonder and awe; we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.


Since 1991

Ms. Jessie

For the past 30 years it has been my privilege to be the owner/director of Discovery Time Childcare. Prior to establishing Discovery Time, I worked for a large company based childcare center for 12 years as the center director. It was there that I learned so much about how to have a quality center and also found I could never realize the goals I had for quality care in my center unless I owned my own. My main goal has always been to provide the very best care and education at the most competitive rates possible so that all children have a high quality pre-school program and nutritious meals available to them.

I realize that when you entrust your child to us you are entrusting us with your most precious possession. It is my goal to meet all of your child's needs while in our care and to ensure your child is provided a safe and loving environment.

Events & Workshops

Early Learning


In every program, and every classroom, we address the specific needs of children based not only on age, but also individual pace of development


Our Pre-K program has been designed as an important stepping stone to elementary school. Here, children make significant developmental gains, communicate more successfully, and learn to work well both independently and in groups through Discovery Time Childcare's early childhood education programs.
