At Kids Discovery, we believe that children should be embraced within a caring and safe environment where they can learn through play. The developing personality of each child is more evident as they grow. We make certain that our teachers take special care to watch the progress of each child and report their progress to parents. By focusing on the positive aspects of a child’s behavior, teacher promote an atmosphere that allows each child to grow at his or her own pace and develop skills that will help them realize their highest potential. Kids Discovery teachers know that a positive approach is the best approach. Using praise creates a good attitude toward learning and helps build a child’s self-esteem. Learning should be a happy, rewarding experience for the child and the teacher.
