About Us

In June 1982, with an extensive background in early childhood education, a love of children, and a few innovative ideas, Lois Mitten Rosenberry, founder and CEO of Children’s Discovery Center, opened the first Children’s Discovery Center location.

Committed to excellence, innovation and being distinctive in educational programming, Mrs. Rosenberry traveled to Italy in 1994 to research and train under the Reggio Emilia early education program, designated by Newsweek magazine as the best in the world. She embraced the approach and chose the best components to successfully integrate into the Children’s Discovery Center educational model.

Now, for more than 35 years, Children’s Discovery Center has grown from one center in Arrowhead Park, Maumee, to five locations throughout the greater Toledo area, providing full-day early care and education for thousands of children and families.
