Our Programs
 
Discovery Years Learning Center is Licensed by The Department of Children, Youth and
Families and the RI Department of Education.
 
Our staff are experienced and dedicated to providing a positive, fun and hands-on learning environment where your child will flourish and grow. 
 
Infants (6 weeks to 18 months)
The infant program has two bright, sunny rooms!  Each teacher plans a curriculum aligned with the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards.  The day is spent in an environment that is as close to home as we can provide.  Infants follow their own unique schedule, so their needs are met just as if they are home.  
 
You can be assured that your child will receive the very best in infant care.  We would like to invite you to come and find out why we are so proud of our program!
 
   Toddlers (18 to 36 months)
Toddlers are busy!  Our teachers understand the needs of active two year olds.  Programs are designed to give a wide range of activities that include active indoor and outdoor playtime with just the right amount of quiet time.
 
The Toddler curriculum is aligned with the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards.  Activities are age-appropriate, fun and educational.  Teachers will guide each child to explore their world and learn skills that will help them become more independent.
 
Preschool and Pre-K (3 to 5 years) 
 
 We believe that children learn best in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. Our teachers provide meaningful learning opportunities through a balance of teacher-guided activities and child-oriented play. 
 
We value our families as partners in their children's learning.  We encourage families to contribute to their child's education as much as possible.  To promote this, we offer several opportunities during the year where families can participate in a variety of events and activities.
 
As outlined by the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards, children will demonstrate positive attitudes and habits in the areas of Social and Emotional Development, Language Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Cognitive Development, Social Studies, Science, Creative Arts, and Physical Health and Motor Development.
 
We understand children are unique and learn in different ways.  Therefore, our teachers act as facilitators who guide each child to strengthen their skills, knowledge and love of learning.
 
As teachers guide children, they are assessing the children's progress to determine individual and group needs within the Standards framework.  Our teachers carefully observe each child during play and interaction throughout the year.  Observations are documented and a portfolio is developed using work samples, photos and checklists.
