Featured Location: Franklin Park (Talmadge)

i Sep 8th
In the months ahead, we’ll be highlighting our Children’s Discovery Center locations throughout Toledo, Ohio, and what makes each location unique! First up: our Franklin Park (Talmadge) location. One of our favorite parts about this center is the spacious, wooded playground where children enjoy lots of room to run and play. Each classroom is specifically designed to inspire children of that age group to learn. It also offers easy access to and from I-475 that helps parents as they commute to work and home. As with any other Children’s Discovery Center location, the Talmadge center offers a warm, welcoming educational environment that nurtures and develops your child’s unique interests and abilities. We believe that a creative environment is essential for inspiring young children to learn. Our educational classrooms are filled with creative media, materials, and activities that support learning and encourage exploration.  Some fun facts about our location? We currently have more than 190 students with 32 staff members. Altogether, the staff at our Talmadge location has more than 260 years of combined experience with the Children’s Discovery Center. In fact, our Director and Assistant Director have a combined 31 years with CDC and one of our teachers as been with us for 25 years! If you take a grand tour through our Talmadge location, you’re sure to meet some of our favorite classroom pets! In total, we have five fish throughout different classrooms, two bearded dragons, and a class bunny! In addition to learning about our on-site pets, we also enjoy exploring in our raised garden beds where children plant vegetables and flowers each spring and summer, then we harvest the food for cooking projects. At our Talmadge location, we are proud of our incredible team members and teachers who have been serving our community at Children’s Discovery for years and years. We are thankful for their dedication to our children, their families, and our Children’s Discovery Center team!
