Want to get an inside look at what The Discovery School is really like? Read about it firsthand from these students’ parents.

“Our son graduated last year and we have a daughter enrolled now. Elisa and her team have built a topnotch preschool at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. They combine a play-based curriculum with social building skills that have had a great impact on our children. And it’s simply a blast for the kids, who get to experience a preschool setting at the museum where there is a great classroom, plus a whole world of hands-on exhibits and hidden nooks for them to discover every day. I highly recommend the program for parents in the Bay Area who are looking for a fun and enriching experience for their kids.”

“We feel honored to be part of such a creative learning hub nestled within a most amazing location. At The Discovery School, kids explore themes that inspire them and the teachers apply the knowledge within those themes. It’s been a joy to watch Beckett immerse himself and we can’t wait to see how the year will unfold.”

“As a parent of a child attending The Discovery School, I’m constantly impressed by the caring, engaging, and professional teachers. The teachers have created a warm environment that encourages curiosity. This is my son’s first time in a drop-off school setting, and he was hesitant about me leaving. The teachers worked with me to come up with a plan for drop-off that was respectful of his feelings. I feel very fortunate that we both have their support!”

“My son has truly grown and learned so much from the loving, innovative, and empowering learning community The Discovery School has cultivated and it has been a year we will always cherish. My husband and I have benefited so much from the rich and impactful talks we’ve had with [the staff] over the course of the year and hope that in the future, we can continue to have a dialogue about any parenting or educational concerns.”
