Dear families of Discovery Time Preschool,

We have some sad news.
Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Polk County and a deep concern for the health and safety of our preschoolers, their siblings and grown-ups, and our wonderful staff going into the new school year, Discovery Time Preschool will not be opening for the Fall 2020 session.

As a preschool board, we have taken great care to consider other alternatives to this unfortunate, but necessary, decision. We will reconvene later in the year to assess the situation and discuss an acceptable return date. At this time, we are not accepting registrations until further notice.

Discovery Time Preschool in Mitchellville has served Southeast Polk preschoolers and their families for over 35 years. It breaks our hearts that we must spend this time away from the many incredible families and community members that bring our program to life. We look forward to bringing Discovery Time Preschool back to you when the time is right, and it is safe to do so.
