Families are an integral part of the Discovery community. We recognize that parents are a child’s first, and most important teacher, and a vital component to a successful early childhood experience. Through informal gatherings and formal Family Share Program activities, staff and families make connections with each other, helping ensure that all are working towards goals that have a child’s best interests at heart. Social gatherings also provide opportunities for families to meet the families of their child’s friends. Some of these friendships can last throughout a child’s life.
