Your Child is in Great Hands



We believe that high-quality and developmentally appropriate programs should be available to all children and their families and should be applied to the four components of Early Childhood programs: curriculum, adult-child interactions, relations between the home and program, and developmental evaluation of children.


We believe children learn through play and a good program will provide opportunities for all levels of development and types of play.


At Discovery Cove we support the children's independence, creativity, and individuality. We believe in respecting and supporting our children. We also believe that we should be part of our community and learn through each others' cultures. We support early learning through play, creative opportunities, and educational experiences.

Who We Are

Carmen Born has been working in childcare for many years. She started out working for the Ministry of Children and Families as a foster parent with her husband Paul for 12 years. Later, she decided to get her ECE training, and for the last 6 years, she has been working in other Centers where she has been an educator and a Director.


Carmen decided to go out on her own and open her daycare to a smaller group of children where she can focus on being responsive to the children's unique learning styles and developmental levels.
