Who we are

Discovery Place Dr. Lila Fahlman is a pre accredited, not-for-profit organization that provides comprehensive, compassionate, and engaging child care for children enrolled at Dr. Lila Fahlman School from Kindergarten to Grade 6.

Our dynamic team brings together staff from a variety of backgrounds including teachers, child care workers, and university students.

As lease-holders in the school we believe that it is imperative for us to be active members in the communities where we operate. Our team strives to build positive relationships with administrators and teachers as well as with the children, their families and the surrounding community.

We close are closed on Statutory Holiday and from December 25th - January 1st annually for a winter break. We also operate year-round which means our doors are open for summer holidays in July and August.

Our program

Our programming is planned around the children’s interest. These ideas are found based upon our observations of the children’s interests through their play and the children are encouraged to be a part of the interest based planning process.

Discovery Out of School Care looks for opportunities to embrace and celebrate different cultures and ethnicity’s.  Families are encouraged to share traditions and occasions that are important to their family with the OSC. This is accomplished when parents share regional delicacies, traditional games and stories.

Parents and caregivers are welcome anytime. Discovery Out of School Care fully embraces an open door policy and the input of parents and caregivers is essential to our ongoing success.
