We joined the Dawn of Discovery family almost 2 years ago. Our son started in the Preschool 1 room and our daughter started in Toddler 1. We recently moved out of the area and needed to find something closer to home but both our kids LOVED all their teachers at Dawn of Discovery.
I give them 5 stars because my son was diagnosed with ASD; Aspergers and Sensory Processing Disorder - while Dawn of Discovery ended up not being the ideal environment for him because of his special needs all of the teachers and directors were VERY courteous and professional on working on a plan with us to help our monkey and kept in good communications with us on when he was having hard days.
Dawn of Discovery always has fun things going on in the classrooms for kids. Our daughter's favorite thing in the world is all things oceans after Miss Shanna did a unit in her classroom and she was so proud of the octopus she made!
Miss Jess, Miss Mandy, Miss Shayla, Miss Hailey, Miss Lexi, Miss Taylor and more will all be missed by our family!!
Miss Jenna, Miss Patty, and Miss Andrea were all wonderful to work with as far as communicating with us on things going on with the kids. We loved the app we got to use in checking in on the kids throughout the day.
Had we not moved we would have stayed with Dawn of Discovery until Kindergarten time. We are so grateful we found Dawn of DIscovery and that our kids were lucky enough to have the great teachers that they did.
THANK YOU DAWN OF DISCOVERY!!!
