Our youngest has attended for two years and loves it. This is the oldest preschool in Davis and you can tell why they stick -- weekly field trips, more activities than I could imagine, directed, self-, and project-based learning, pizza/pj days, parents night out, the list goes on and on.... and at a great price. The negative reviews here just seem like passive-aggresive venting. Some of it is simply untrue. E.g.: there is no contract, only you must give a months notice prior to leaving. We know because our oldest son left to go to an "experiential" school that sounded great, cost us twice as much, and left him totally unprepared for Kindergarten. While we regret the decision for him to leave Discovery, we had no problem with giving a months notice. Discovery is a great choice for a preschool.

As an educator myself, this school did not meet the qualities that a good preschool should have to instill a foundation for young learners.

I enrolled my son at Discovery Preschool but did not attend the school after sitting in for a couple of hours the first two days. The staff's attentiveness to the children was low, and I saw the owner use harsh/aggressive tones with the kids. To me, it felt like a bad daycare, not a preschool. It just wasn't what we were looking for. Sue, the owner, sued me for three months of tuition even though my son only attended for a few hours. The court mediator disclosed that she has taken other parents to court as well. Be careful! Do not sign anything without a lawyer, she has a predatory contract. It is clear the top interest of her school is your money, not your child's education. I post this to save other new families the heartache we've been through with this place.

My child enjoys this school, as do I. The staff is very accommodating and easy going. They let kids be kids but still offer plenty of teacher child interaction. Many creative activities throughout the day. Some here have mentioned the outdated play equipment. This is actualy something that I truly appreciate about the school. Real play equipment that is creative, one of a kind, and has stood the test of time. I would be horrified if this equipment was replaced with, modern "safe" equipment. The same can be said for the building itself, some would call it old, I say it has character and is full of history. Do you want to teach your children that appearance is more important than substance? Then this is not your school. For me, I am very happy with Discovery and how the school is helping my child grow.
