Discover the Difference at Children’s Discovery Center

In June 1982, with an extensive background in early childhood education, a love of children, and a few innovative ideas, Lois Mitten Rosenberry, founder and CEO of Children’s Discovery Center, opened the first CDC location.

For 30 years, Children’s Discovery Center has grown from that first center in Arrowhead Park, Maumee, to eight locations, providing full-day educational child care for over 1,500 children in the greater Toledo area.

Why are so many Toledo area families choosing Children’s Discovery Center as their child care provider? Look at the results.

  • Real learning in all academic areas including reading, math, science, foreign language, and music takes place because children are immersed in activities and projects that are relevant to their developing minds.
  • Children’s Discovery Center kindergarten students consistently score well-above-average on national achievement tests.
  • For 30 years, Children’s Discovery Center has been providing the highest quality child care to Toledo area families.
