I enrolled my son here after a very horrible experience with another child care center, and I couldn't believe how wonderful and flexible the staff were. My son was having accidents every single day and nightmares almost every single night due to the amount of stress he was under at his last school, but Discovery Isle has changed that for him and made him enjoy school again! I am free to call anytime of the day for anything, and I never feel like I am bothering them. I have a very close relationship with my son's teachers, who are highly educated and responsible. They encourage creativity, and understand developmental stages. I am so fortunate to have found these people. It is very difficult to leave your child with someone other than you, but every day I drop my son off knowing that I am leaving him in the best hands possible. The curriculum is outstanding, and I'm amazed to see my son point out and recognize letters in the alphabet. Even Spanish classes are free here! The best part is there's a camera in every classroom, so you can always see what's going on with your child. I love this place!

I searched long and hard before placing my daughter in a pre-school and was very impressed with the quality of teaching and care my daughter received here. Both of her teachers were excellent!

I had to remove my daughter from this school because of a problem with the school not dealing with an aggressive group of boys in her class, and an unwillingnesss to be up front and communicate with the other parents about some problems in the classroom.

This was a wonderful school for my daughter. I say "school" because, even at three-years-old, she was receiving an education. All the classes (those of pre-school years and a little younger) were set up just like a school classroom. The children had very structured schedules and were really being prepared for their leap into Kindergarten. The children learned, but had lots of fun also. During the summer months the kids got to play outdoors with water events and really had fun just playing outside with all the other activities during the day. The teachers were not just your average "day-care" people. These were actual teachers that had their own curriculum and ways of teaching, but still were really able to be close with the kids. If I were to ever have a need for a preschool setting again Discovery Isle would be my first choice.

I will second that, this preschool is the best in Poway or Scripps Ranch! Discovery Isle is super clean, the teachers and administration staff are very helpful, caring and always trying to make everyone happy. My child comes home learning something new everyday and loves being there.

After an extensive search for preschools in Poway I found that Discovery Isle was the best choice. I am thankful everyday for the teachers, staff, cirrculum, facility, and activities they offer. The one on one quality of care is top notch.
