Discovery of Learning ®
Discovery of Learning's Online Program is for families looking for an exciting alternative to traditional classroom instruction.
In our multi-age virtual classroom, children spanning 2-4 grades come together for a child-centered, developmental, project-based, hands-on approach to learning. Children are greeted by name when they enter the live virtual classroom and are encouraged to be active members of the online learning environment. Learning takes place at each child's pace, giving them opportunities to choose how to approach the educational concepts and extension activities while being guided with engaging demonstrations and interactive lessons.
Our Online Program Subjects:
In this unique setting, our teachers work collaboratively with students to provide guidance and personalized instruction in Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Art.
Language Arts activities introduce a variety of literary genres and create opportunities to build expressive and receptive Language Arts skills.
Math concepts use a play-based method that facilitates learning a variety of math strategies that apply to each child's current math level.
Science units feature teacher-created, hands-on, engaging, educational concepts, and project ideas that incorporate the Next Generation Science Standards.
Social Studies units feature custom, hands-on, engaging, educational concepts, and project ideas, created by our teachers that incorporate the concepts from the California History-Social Science Framework.
The arts are incorporated into all our daily classes to help bring learning to life for each student.
