Programs Offered

Infants

We care for infants ages six weeks to 12 months in our Guppies classes.

We have two programs, lead by an exceptional team of teachers.  


By about four to six months, your baby will be cooing and gurgling, wiggling and kicking, rolling over and trying to sit up by herself. Remember to talk, sing and read to your baby every day, and let her use soft and colorful books as toys. Your loving relationship with her will make all the difference in her learning.


By the end of your baby’s first year of life, she might already be crawling and trying to take her first steps. Remember that a warm, responsive and dependable adult caregiver is the most essential ingredient to her healthy development.

Toddlers (12-18 months)

DHLC provides two young toddler programs; Minnows (12-15 months) and Seahorses (15-18 months).


Your child at 12 to 18 months is developing a real personality. She is still growing rapidly, but not as dramatically as in the first year. As she begins to walk, run and climb, she

gains confidence and a greater sense of independence. At this stage, your child needs encouragement and freedom to explore, as well as clear boundaries and limits to feel safe.

Older Toddlers (18-24 months)

Our Penguins classroom is for older toddlers ages 18-24 months. 


Your child is becoming his own person.  Watch him as he starts to walk, run and climb with ease.  At this stage, your child needs encouragement and freedom to explore, as well as clear boundaries and limits to feel safe.

Two's

Our Sea Turtles classroom is for children 2 to 2 1/2 years old and is the introduction to potty training.  


Our Whales classroom is for children 2 1/2 to 3 years old.  In this program, children will complete the potty training process.


By the time your child reaches 36 months, she will probably have a vocabulary of around 900 words and use three to five word sentences. Your child at this stage is bursting with curiosity. Your praise, encouragement and support as she works to perfect her motor skills and increase her knowledge of the world around her will help her grow up strong, happy and confident.

Three's

By the time your child reaches 36 months, she will probably have a vocabulary of around 900 words and use three to five word sentences. Your child at this stage is bursting with curiosity. Your praise, encouragement and support as she works to perfect her motor skills and increase her knowledge of the world around her will help her grow up strong, happy and confident.


Our Starfish class is for children who are 3 to 3 1/2 years old.  In this program, children have completed the potty training process.



Our Dolphins class is for children who are 3 1/2 to 4 years old.  This program is a precursor to our Pre-K program.  Our teachers will focus on many factors to prepare the children for Pre-K and Kindergarten.

Pre-K

Discovery Harbor Learning Center is proud to offer an exceptional Pre-K program.  Our Stingrays and Sea Lions classes prepare children ages 4-5 years old for kindergarten.  


This year, your child will finish preschool and get ready for kindergarten. It’s a big jump and with it comes growing pains. Your child will challenge himself to learn new things — like staying dry through the night or tying his shoes. As he does, he will face frustration. Your encouragement and support can ease aggravation and help him accomplish his goals.

Before & After School Care

Our Waverunners class provides before and after school care for children in Kindergarten through 12 years old.  DHLC services Mountain Island Lake Academy (located directly next door) students only as we do not provide transportation.
