Our director and teachers make the difference.

All our teachers are educated in early childhood, most have taught a Discovery Corner Academy for many years and many are moms.

Exceptional Director

Our director, Loretta, has worked at Discovery Corner Academy for more than 20 years.  Loretta is an energetic hands-on director who is endlessly involved with each class.  She speaks to your child at eye-level in a kind, considerate and respectful way and makes that a standard for her staff.  She’s a wonderful role model for your child.  The children, parents and teachers love her friendly, helpful and caring outlook.

Loretta welcomes everyone with a smile.  She is happy to talk to you about your child at any time.

Caring Teachers

Our teachers are experienced, dedicated and mature.  Parents are delighted to be greeted by the same teachers year after year.  Many of our teachers have been with us for 15 or 20 years, and you can tell that they are still having fun by their enthusiasm, the activities they plan and their interaction with the children.

The entire staff knows every child and parent by name.  Teachers are carefully chosen for their kind, loving, and warm manner.  They provide your child with a safe environment, an educational program with planned activities, positive social skills and individual help.

Parents feel comfortable bringing their child to Discovery Corner Academy.   So many of them have commented on the sense of “family” they feel when visiting our school.  You’ll be impressed with the amount of learning you see and the laughter you hear.

What Parents Say

Discovery Corner Academy has been the best experience for our son. We drive completely out of the way to get to DCA and it's absolutely worth it. Dana W.
I believe that a good staff comes from the top, and Loretta is phenomenal. The way DCA is ran is exceptional. Our family only has one regret that is that we had found DCA earlier so that our older son could have attended. Kim W.
