Preschool at Discovery Cottage 

Discovery Cottage hosts enrichment programs for children 2 through 5 years old. Our unique program is designed to provide a totally hands-on and kid-centered learning experience that will allow them to use their imagination. Classes range from three to four weeks, depending on the month. Children will participate in a wide variety of activities such as: playing games, performing experiments, and creating crafts. We take pride in not being a worksheet program. Kids learn hands on and have fun in the process. Come use your imagination and discover new friends!
