Discovery Developmental Center was founded in 1992 by a Speech and Language Pathologist and a Physical Therapist as a place where children with special needs and developmental delays could receive pre-school programming and early intervention services in an integrated setting with their peers. As the program grew and developed, it outgrew it's leased space. In August 2005, DDC moved into a new facility designed and built with young children, families, and staff in mind.
Family programming needs have varied, ranging from full-time child care to 2 mornings-a-week preschool programming. Historically, about 1/3 of the children enrolled have had some level of special needs. An average of twenty five percent of families served over the years has qualified for child care assistance through the state. This diversified range of family needs sets us apart from organizations developed to serve specific populations or segments of our economy. Discovery promotes full inclusion in pre-school and child care programs with the hopes of fostering an awareness and respect in our children for the unique abilities they find in one another. Through-out all the years, Discovery has remained committed to the philosophy that children learn best through play!
