Children’s Discovery Place at Polaris is an Award-Winning, one-of-a-kind, child care facility in the Lewis Center/Polaris Parkway community.  We deliver exceptional care and exceptional education through strict quality review, low child to teacher ratios, an educated and experienced teaching staff, and a nationally acclaimed educational program The Creative Curriculum, based on proven learning philosophies and the latest research.

Children’s Discovery Place at Polaris serves children ages 6 weeks to 10 years of age.  Our specialty is quality Infant and Toddler Care, while providing an enriching educational program for Preschool and School Age.  A variety of part-time schedules are offered for Preschool and School-Age.   The center currently offers an action-packed Summer Camp for school age children!  We transport to several nearby Olentangy & Worthington Elementary Schools.

*If you are looking for the smaller, more exclusive center that views your child as an individual with enormous potential, then Children’s Discovery Place is for you!  We are not a mega-chain and we do not believe in large scale cookie-cutter approaches to child care.  Every child is different and special and we customize our lesson plans, educational curriculum, special events and daily routines around them.

Our classrooms are intentionally smaller and we limit enrollment for a better emotional and developmental experience.  Our approach and level of quality is different from the rest and is the very best foundation for young children! 

Don’t miss out on reserving a spot, as space is very limited. Come in and see for yourself.
Please note that some classrooms may be on a Wait list, so call today!

Children’s Discovery Place at Polaris is a SEVEN-TIME Step Up To Quality Award Winner!  SUTQ is a very prestigious award achieved through a quality-monitoring program that sets the highest standards in childcare. 

Please join me in congratulating the entire staff on this amazing accomplishment.  You can take great pride in knowing that your child attends the highest quality center in town!

SECURITY: We take every precaution when it comes to the safety of the children in our care. The main building is accessible only via a key code entry system. All classrooms and playrooms in the main building are monitored via a closed circuit television system. The main building is also completely monitored for both fire and safety, including an emergency panel that has direct dial capabilities.

QUALITY CURRICULUM: We believe a strong curriculum taught by experienced and highly educated teachers provides your child with an early advantage. We utilize the country’s leading scientifically based, research-validated, comprehensive curriculum with guidance on teaching literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition, we get the children excited about the results of education through Science Fairs, ‘Mathapalooza’, Read-A-Thons, Artist Shows, Music Concerts and so much more!

LOW RATIOS: We believe your child deserves individual attention and care. We provide an environment with very low child to teacher ratios to allow for that individual attention, specific development and loving care.

EDUCATED STAFF: We know that research has proven a direct correlation between a highly educated teaching staff and high quality child care. Therefore, we hire the best and brightest teachers to care for and educate your child.

EXTRAS: We believe in going the extra mile to make life more stress free for our students and parents. We offer conveniences and extra perks unique to our center – like Free Pizza Fridays!
