First Discovery Children’s Academy has been family owned and operated since 2010. We serve children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
First Discovery is more than a typical daycare center. First Discovery adheres to the highest standards of education, safety, security, cleanliness, and loving care.
As a daycare center in Virginia Beach, Virginia, our primary goal is for children to feel safe and secure. Additionally, we believe that a learning environment that fosters respect for cultural diversity and utilizes an extensive approach to education allows for optimal growth and development of young children.
Young children’s developmental tasks are to build trust, learn social skills, begin mastery of academic skills, and develop positive self-esteem. To best support these tasks, our program strives to provide developmentally appropriate activities, well-trained and consistent staff, a safe and healthy learning environment, and continuity of care. Also, throughout the whole learning process, we believe parents are their child’s first teacher. Thus, we work to support parents in their efforts to guide their child’s development as well. We use positive reinforcement to help build self-esteem which provides learning opportunities for children to work through a situation.
