I have had the privilege to serve on the Family Development Center/Discovery Learning Center Board of Directors in addition to serving as a three time volunteer chair of the annual fundraiser. Tami Havener has provided clear, consistent leadership with a program always focused on providing the best environment for the children and families served. The organization has strong fiscal management and is very well staffed with great planning and organization. When I have contributed as a donor to the organization, I know my contributions are well spent and directly impact the bottom line of this great facility.

This little pre-school and kindergarten is an oasis of learning, nurturing, caring, and fun. The staff is top notch. The Director is one of the most dedicated people I know. I cannot stress enough what an amazing experience it has been for my family.

Excellent preschool/daycare! DLC offers a well planned program that fosters self confident, kind, inquisitive little people. My son loves his teachers, his friends, his classroom and the awesome outdoor play area. I never stress about him when I’m at work. I know he is happy, safe and loved.
