Registration & Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in Discovery!

Call now if you’re interested in care!


*We enroll year-round, based on available openings in individual classrooms, though the bulk of registration occurs in April and May of each year for upcoming summer and fall openings.

*We offer a variety of scheduling options. Choose from 2-5 days/week, with options for morning-only (9-12:30), half-days (8:30-3:30) or full days (7:30-5:30).

*We do keep a list of enrollment inquiries, however, it is not necessarily a ‘waitlist’ where children are enrolled in the order in which families called. If you are interested, please stay in touch regularly! We will assume that families have found an alternative they are happy with if they haven’t called back within a 3-month period. In general, the more flexibility you have with your child care needs, the easier it is to find a place for your child(ren) in the program.

Registration requirements: PLEASE CALL and speak with Collette or Barbara about what your child care needs are before showing up for a tour. We want to ensure that we have a spot for your child before we start any paperwork or collect a payment. When a placement is available, then we will schedule a tour of the facility. To enroll, we will need a $50 registration fee per child, completed registration form, and a copy of current immunizations (please note that immunization exemptions are NOT allowed for licensed child care centers.)

The second step of the registration process is a 2-week tuition deposit and additional enrollment paperwork. See Tuition Policies for current fees and additional information.

At this time, Discovery does not have an internal tuition assistance program. There is funding available from the state based on income. Information about state Best Beginning Child Care scholarships is available by calling The Nurturing Center  at 406-756-1414. Please note that current DDC tuition fees still apply, which may require additional financial obligations beyond what the state authorizes.
