So grateful for CDA!

“We couldn’t be more pleased with CDA. My youngest is in the infant room and loves his teachers. They know his quirks, call him by sweet nicknames, and are eager to share/celebrate his successes. It’s really heartwarming to hear their remarks at the end of the day. Teacher Kristi does a wonderful job encouraging him to try new foods and learn new things (e.g., drinking from a cup). Sometimes he reaches his arms out when we walk past his classroom just because he wants to give teacher Tori a hug. My oldest is in the preschool room and is thriving. She loves her teachers and they clearly love her. Teacher Amberley is very talented and clearly puts a lot of effort and expertise into her curriculum. Teacher Celsy has a bunch of inside jokes with my daughter and is always quick with a hug or distraction when drop-off is hard. Both Emilys are also much loved. I can’t say enough about the teachers in the preschool room. They exceed all expectations! We couldn’t be more pleased with CDA.”

Highly Recommend!

“We have been at CDA just a couple months, after being at another daycare for over 5 years. CDA is exceeding our expectations in just the short amount of time. The best part is that our kids love it there – we have never seen them so excited to go to daycare and then to come home and tell us about their days. Beyond that, there are so many things that make this daycare exceed our previous one – the daily communication (all the great pictures received throughout the day!), the weekly newsletters, the auto withdrawals from our bank account, breakfast and lunch are provided every day, the extra curriculars, and so much more! We highly recommend CDA!”

Teaching Staff

“I would like to have it noted what a great job the teaching staff do, at VH CDA. It is always hard having to drop kids off in the morning, but they do a great job of getting them engaged and learning. Both of the lead teachers in my daughters class have made a great impact on her and she speaks very highly of them both. Thank you.”

A+++ Staff, Facility and Curriculum

“My son loves going to CDA for the fun activities, playing with friends and attention/love shown by the teachers. He’s learning something new everyday and is proud to tell me about it. I love sending him to CDA because it’s a clean and safe environment, and the communication can’t be beat. I look forward to reading the Daily Connect report form his teachers and appreciate the weekly emails talking about the upcoming theme and what the kids will be learning. Very well run center from top to bottom.”

Best Choice We Ever Made!

“We went back and forth for months as to whether or not we should send our son to preschool this year. We couldn’t possibly be more impressed with the attention and care given to every detail of his day. Everything from the learning experiences to the food he eats has been given great care and thoughtfulness. The teachers are filled with patience and enthusiasm daily and we feel that is hard to find. Our child who often would rather stay home than go anywhere, loves school days! We couldn’t be more thankful for Children’s Discovery!”

Best Care For My Child

“This is the best daycare I have seen. The teachers are all very welcoming and helpful. They all like to keep an open line of communication when it comes to your child’s day and progress. They do a great job of planning activities for the children and the children enjoy doing whatever they have planned. They promote kindness and sharing. The center itself is always clean and never cluttered. I am proud to bring my child somewhere I know she will be well taken care of and have lots of fun learning new things! Would recommend to anyone!”

We love our CDA teachers

“We couldn’t be more pleased with CDA. Maddie loves her teachers. Teacher Amberley clearly works hard to develop a curriculum that makes learning fun and engaging. She also puts a lot of effort into the conferences she holds for parents. I really enjoyed hearing about Maddie’s progress from a teacher who is so knowledgeable about children’s development. I am constantly amazed at the things my little girl is learning. They have taught her so many preliteracy skills (e.g., identifying letters by sound). Maddie loves to tell me about the different classroom jobs (“weather helper”, “line leader”). The teachers at CDA clearly care about their charges. I can tell they celebrate her successes and comfort her when she is sad. Celsy is always quick to offer a hug or suggest a helper task when Maddie is sad at drop-off. Emily will put little braids in her hair that Maddie loves to show off to her family. She also lovingly refers to her teacher Kayla as “my big Kayla” since there is also a classmate named Kayla. She is also beyond proud when Teacher Amberley says she can have something from the “treasure box” for being a good listener/helper. Sometimes at drop-off she insists on giving all her teachers a hug goodbye. It really warms my heart to see how much she loves her teachers. The program also emphasizes healthy meals/snacks and lots of physical activity. Their parent communication (via the DailyConnect app) is also fantastic. We really couldn’t be more pleased with CDA.”

“I highly recommend Children’s Discovery to anyone with children! My son started in the toddler classroom and has since moved to the preschool classroom and he has loved every teacher and staff member at the center! The daily connect app keeps parents updated on the day and getting pictures is always wonderful. My child learns so much and has great social interaction with the kids in his class. We are so thankful for everyone at Children’s Discovery!”

The Best!

“Enrolling Will in CDA two years ago was the best decision we could have made. Changing classrooms is difficult for little ones, and he had some setbacks with potty training. Kristin and the preschool teachers worked with us, listened to our concerns, and showed the utmost care to our son to help him overcome this difficult step! Will loves coming to CDA every day. Thank you!”
