Discovery Preschool re-opens

Sierra Sun staff reports

Discovery Preschool, in Truckee for the past 23 years, is proud to announce its grand re-opening.

Discovery Preschool, in Truckee for the past 23 years, is re-opening with a number of new features.

The group is excited about the enhancements, such as: revamping of our program, moving classrooms around, making smaller class sizes for the younger children, bringing in animals from Pet Station (golden gecko, tree frogs, bearded lizard, desert tortoises, and fish), and integrating an exciting science program for preschoolers.

Instructors have brought in science tables, plants, animals,experiments and various other things to help students learn about the world around us through discovery and hands-on activities.

The 5- and 6-year-old program is in a larger space set up specifically for this age child and we are calling it “The Kids Learning Club”. The goal of this program will be to focus on kindergarten skills with a new emphasis on science. This program will support and enhance what the kindergarteners are doing at elementary school, and our pre-kindergarteners will continue to work on kindergarten readiness, also with a science emphasis.

Call Lynn or Kirsten at 587-6966 to set up a tour or to get on our waiting list.
