We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child-centered program develops physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, and self-help skills while encouraging curiosity, discovery, and problem-solving.

We encourage youth to develop positive habits, attitudes, behaviors by learning from adults who engage and stimulate intellectual curiosity.

  • Small & large group work
  • Identify feelings
  • Experience pride & confidence

What Parents are Saying About Our Preschool

Since moving our son to Pasco Club Discovery we feel at ease and fully confident that he will be cared for mentally, emotionally, and physically. Most importantly, we feel and know without a shadow of a doubt that our son is genuinely cared for and treated as such.
Pasco Clubhouse Preschool Parent

Our son's face brightens up when he sees Miss Kyla first thing in the morning as she greets him before walking in. He loves that he is seen and heard by Miss Alexia. Miss Esther is his staple friend, offering peace and familiarity. Last but certainly not least, Miss Tara is his constant cheerleader and affirmer.
