Halloween event at Discovery Center
We have had lots of fun this week preparing for Halloween. We began our week by talking about spooky things like ghost,goblins and howling wind. We made spooky pictures and played with shaving cream. Today we trick a treat inside the Center and had a special snack. It was so nice to see everybody in costumes. Thank you all for coming!!!
Bears Class getting ready for Halloween
Bears class is very excited for Halloween! We've been making masks and playing dress up with our friends. This week we carved out our class pumpkin, got to scoop out the insides and pick out the pumpkin seeds. Today we decorated out Trick-or-Treat bags and practiced writing and tracing our names!

Toddler class news
We had an amazingly fun-filled week. It began with learning about spiders and ended with talking about Halloween. Our art projects included finger paint spiders, tissue paper ghosts, and our favorite: footprint ghosts. Miss Nicole painted white paint on our feet and we made our foot print on black paper. The paint on our feet was squishy, cold and fun! Our outside times were fun, too. We had fun in the fog pretending to be ghosts and goblins. Hurrah
All Children are equal in our eyes...
It doesn't matter where you're from, how you dress, or what religion you practice: all children are equal in that they need love, shelter, food and clothing. They may come from different parts of the world, but all children are equal in that they deserve a great start in life and in school. They may talk in different languages or wear different clothes, but all children are equal in that they need to bond with their primary caregiver, and trust in the adults who love them. All children are equal in that they are our future, full of innocence and curiosity about their world. We love our children unconditionally, because all children are equal in our eyes.

Childcare news you can use!
Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.

We are the role models for the future. I'm glad to be a positive influence on so many young lives. Here at Discovery Center we don't just "talk the talk", we teach with compassion, understanding, and respect.
Please help us welcome Miss Cheree Harder to our center. Cheree has experience working with children of all ages at other centers, and she has two grown children of her own. She comes very highly recommended, and we're very fortunate to have her with us. Please stop and say hello and feel free to introduce yourself! Welcome, Cheree!
Not just child care, loving care!
There's so much more to child care than caring for a child. Guidance, love, nurturing, and support all play a big role. We can wipe noses and tie laces all day and that's taking care of a child, but we go above and beyond that. We support exploration and discovery; we nurture individuality; we guide emotions through good times and bad. We truly love our children and their families, and it shows in the happy faces of all the children here at The Discovery Center!
