    From the Discovery Club Website:

    "Discovery Club's mission is to provide out-of-school time Child Care in a safe, fun, nurturing environment that supports children's learning and development.

    Children participate in a variety of academic enrichment, recreational and cultural activities that informally support learning and social development. Life and social skills, such as cooperation, teamwork, and problem solving are fostered in a caring and accepting environment. Additionally, Discovery Club staff connect with school-day teachers to better support children's learning, including time for homework."
