About Us

About Discovery Days and Discovery Barn Preschool

We strive for excellence in care and education for the children at our center. Our goal is to build a strong early education foundation through a variety of experiences involving creative expression, independent learning, social skills, language skills and fine and gross motor skills. Each child will develop positive attitudes about self, school, and learning.

We go above and beyond for every child in our care; meeting more than just their basic needs, including nutritious meals, clean and hygienic facilities, routine, rituals, and consistency. Both the children and their families are central to everything we do, and the input of families is essential to our achieving and maintaining excellence.

Our center supports infants (as young as 6 weeks old) through preschool, and even school age children through our after school program.

We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your child’s early education experience. We love it here!

Our History

Discovery Days was founded by Shae Horak. A longtime proponent of the importance of early childhood education, Shae was inspired to create a center where she could put into practice all of the best approaches to early care for children. The success of the first center brought Shae to expand to a second location. The Discovery Barn location, having been run successfully by it’s previous owner, offered the perfect opportunity for Shae to continue using her considerable experience and insight to help guide the leaders and great minds of future generations.
