Child Care Safety and Security

Safety is our number one priority. Our daycare facility in Duluth has been custom-designed with your child’s security in mind, and we’ve taken care of details like child-proofing electrical outlets, creating age-separate play areas, and maintaining strict visitor screening policies to ensure that your child is truly secure while in our hands.

Our Preschool Curriculum 

A strong preschool curriculum is key to laying a solid foundation for a lifelong love of learning and exploration. We promote children’s natural curiosity through our proprietary curriculum, which emphasizes language development and literacy. We’ve also implemented the Creative Curriculum® System for Preschool through our partnership with Teaching Strategies®, helping our students build critical thinking skills through hands-on activities.

At each Discovery Point learning center, child care safety is paramount. We take nothing more seriously. Every one of our custom-designed facilities is strategically outfitted with safety and security at the forefront. We employ strict policies regulating visitors as well as keypad-locked buildings to prevent unwanted entry. From electrical outlets to playgrounds, we overlook nothing. We believe child care is successful only when safety is an integral part of the program.
