Discover Our World Too is located inside St. Paul's Lutheran Church. It offers child care, traditional preschool, summer latchkey, before and after school latchkey for MRE, and the GSRP for children ages two through twelve years of age.
Philosophy At Discover Our World Too: We know every child is an individual and develops physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially at his or her own pace. We provide an environment that encourages growth through play. Given the chance to explore with positive encouragement and reinforcement, each child will develop a strong sense of self-worth and self-confidence. Program Following our philosophy that children learn through play, we will offer the following activities daily; quiet, active, individual, small, and large groups, large and small muscle, child, and staff initiated, developmentally appropriate literacy and language, early math, technology and science.
Our formal curriculum is The Creative Curriculum. A developmental screening tool that we use is the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). The ASQ consists of a short survey that teachers will complete along with parents. This provides a snapshot of child development in the areas of communication, physical ability, social skills, problem solving ability, and social emotional competence.
The primary assessment tool used is TS GOLD. TS GOLD is a research-based system proven to be valid and reliable for assessing children birth through kindergarten. It shows the developmental progress over 38 objectives in the developmental domains of social-emotional competence, physical, language, cognition, literacy, and mathematics and English language acquisition (when appropriate).
Teachers complete an assessment at least twice per school year and share progress with parents at family conferences.
GSRP, The Great Start Readiness Program, is a state funded FREE preschool program for qualifying four year old(s). The GSRP classroom is a full day program Monday through Thursday 8:30am-3:30pm. Meals are included and latchkey is available for a nominal fee.
