ABOUT US

Meet Michelle and John

Discovery Minooka was founded in 2015 by Michelle and John Ginley. Because we are a private and family owned company we are on-site and available 24/7. Please feel free to contact us at any time. Discovery is a safe nurturing environment where your child will get the attention that they need and deserve. We are licensed by the state of Illinois and have met or exceeded all health and safety guidelines.

OUR MISSION

Discovery Learning Center's mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment ensuring the highest quality care and development for your children. To fulfill this mission we will: .

  • Implement and employ age-specific educational programs
  • Provide a safe and nurturing environment that develops each child's unique qualities and potential
  • Support families in balancing their personal and professional lives
  • Create a work environment that encourages professionalism, growth and diversity
  • Grow our business to enable us to benefit children and their families, create new opportunities for our employees and build shareholder value
  • Become an integral part of the community and make a difference in the lives of children and families where we live and work

OUR CURRICULUM

Our educational program is based upon our philosophy of learning, and we encourage parents to participate in the development of our program. Our program is divided into five age and developmental based groups as programming is not a 'one size fits all' approach.

Our curriculum incorporates all key components of a child's learning and development, such as cognition, music, drama, art, language and literacy, early math skills and concepts, science, gross and fine motor coordination, and of course, socialization.

THE DYNAMIC ROLE OF THE TEACHER

"Teachers begin to see themselves in new ways and in different roles. These varied and complex roles include: observer, listener, planner, communicator, provoker, interpreter, scaffolder, researcher, risk taker, creative problem solver, collaborator, documenter, facilitator and learning partner." - Tepanier-Street Hong & Donegan 2001
