At Discovery Kidzone we follow 3 Key Elements
Safety is our number one priority and we want to provide the safest environment for your children. We also train the educators and children to embody this philosophy, so that we have a culture of quality and safety in all that we do.
Once children and adults feel safe they can then move on to fostering loving and nurturing relationships. Fostering a positive sense of self, growing strong care giver bonds and developing positive parent to teacher relationships is vital to the development of children. At Discovery Kidzone, we want children to feel loved and valued and teach them how to treat others that way in the process.
A child and adult who are in a safe place and feels loved will be able to regulate emotions, concentrate more, have better problem solving skills, clean up after themselves, be helpful to others, set goals and become happy and productive humans. We teach the children how to move to the next step and to be mindful of their surroundings and the people they are with. Ultimately, by learning these three key elements the children will have a strong foundation for years to come.
School Age After school care and Summer Camp
We believe that after school care and summer camp are vital in the lives of young children and their families. Children ages 6-12 need a safe and educational place to go and parents deserve to have confidence in where their children are. Our after school program offers snacks, field trips, homework help, interactive and educational themes and lessons and a place to relax and have fun. Our summer camp is a theme based day camp that takes full advantage of our beautiful big sky country and all the outdoor activities we have to offer. We teach the children survival skills and outdoor/nature learning.
