The Discovery Center is an early childhood program for children aged two years and nine months (33 months) through five years old that has been serving families in the Ann Arbor, Michigan, area since 1974. We also serve families in nearby communities, including Brighton, Canton, Chelsea, Dexter, Pinckney, Saline, South Lyon, Ypsilanti, and more.

With our highly-educated and experienced staff, our modern building and grounds designed specifically for our use, and our nurturing, flexible program, we believe the environment created here for young children is ideal. Our building and program have received national recognition and multiple awards.

Each classroom of up to 24 students at The Discovery Center is staffed by a team of three professional teachers supported by assisting teachers and administrative staff. The professional teachers have university degrees in child development, early childhood education, or related disciplines. Their average tenure at The Discovery Center is more than seven years.

If you are interested in visiting the center, you can reserve a space at one of our center tours:
