The Discovery School!
The Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) is the place to go for creative, high-quality early learning experiences. The museum’s on-site preschool, The Discovery School (TDS), extends that learning in preschool classes for children ages 3-5.
As a high-quality, museum-based preschool, TDS focuses on developing children’s creative problem-solving skills through a STEM-rich, innovative practice that responds to children’s unique curiosities, questions, and interests. Inspired by the preschools of Reggio Emilia, TDS’s approach to learning is built on a foundation of respect for children and their capabilities.
TDS leverages its many resources—including its museum location and national park setting—to foster children’s natural curiosity and introduce them to the knowledge and approaches to learning they’ll need to thrive, both in school and as lifelong creative problem solvers.
