To help you understand more about our program and what we have to offer families, please read our story below:

Discovery Developmental Center (DDC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 child care and early learning center in Kalispell, Montana. Founded in 1992 by two pediatric therapists who believed in the value of inclusive environments, Discovery continues to offer an environment where ALL children can thrive. We regularly enroll children who have physical or intellectual disabilities, diagnosed or suspected developmental delays, special health needs, allergies, or who just need more support (times are changing, and we get it!). With more than 30 years in the valley, our program has experience serving the diverse needs of children and families, and we work tirelessly with every family to understand and meet their needs and connect them with other programs and resources in this community. Our current facility was designed and built with the needs of young children and families in mind, ensuring an outstanding environment for care and learning.
