Discoveryland Child Care Center is part of South Bay Christian School. It became licensed for operation in 1986 in one room with one director/teacher and five children. It was expanded to three rooms including an infant-toddler room in 1988 with an agreement to serve the families of the employees at Little Company of Mary Hospital. Three new rooms were added in 1999 and in 2018, the Sunflower room for two-year-olds was open, bringing the total to 125 students daily.
Discoveryland provides a loving, friendly, and safe Christian environment for children in which their creativity, individuality, and self-esteem will be nurtured. The developmentally appropriate curriculum addresses the child’s mental, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
Discoveryland is owned and operated by South Bay Christian School, a Seventh-day Adventist school serving students in Transitional Kindergarten through Grade Eight. It is licensed by the State of California’s Department of Social Services. The South Bay Christian School Board of Directors determines the policies governing the center.
Full-time Discoveryland children with siblings at South Bay Christian School are extended the South Bay Christian School sibling discount of 5%.
In addition to providing childcare for children 6-weeks through five years of age, we have a pre-kindergarten program and overall center that provides valuable educational experiences that foster positive growth and development.
Students graduating from the Discoveryland Rainbow Room program often go on to attend South Bay Christian School in our TK or Kindergarten program located on the shared campus.
