Our Waterville child care center has been a part of the community for 15 years, providing unlimited opportunities for hands-on activities and learning! Our team loves serving the surrounding community and in fact, most of our enrolled families live and work right here in the area. One of the things we value most is the life-long relationships we’ve formed with so many of the families we’ve served throughout the years.
Just as you will find at our other five Toledo-area locations, we provide Reggio-inspired activities as part of our lesson plans each day, encouraging children to learn and explore in exciting and creative environments. Our teachers and children work together to design projects, as the children get the opportunity to guide their educational experience. We also believe that a creative environment is essential for inspiring young children to learn. When you step foot into our Waterville center, you can tell you’re in a special and unique space.
If you take a look outside while at this location, you will see that we have a certified Nature Explore classroom! This outdoor classroom provides an exciting environment for our kindergarten students to learn and participate in hands-on activities that use various materials found in nature. From becoming “Weather Watchers” outdoors, to observing the plants and creatures in our natural environment, the outdoor classroom provides a unique space for children to engage in educational activities in new and exciting ways.
Currently, our Waterville location has 32 staff members with 191 enrolled students. Our director of this location has actually been with Children’s Discovery Center for 23 years, and some teachers have even been with us for 25. If you combined all of the staff’s experience together, our team has years and years of knowledge and care under our belts when it comes to educating and caring for the children in the Toledo community.
