Hi! I am Cadence Perkins, and I am pleased to announce I am the new Owner of Discovery Learning Center. DLC is an independent private school dedicated to providing the best early childhood education experience possible to the families it serves. The Center has been in operation since 1997, and has had many successful years providing excellent child care services. From the moment I walked into DLC, I felt welcomed by the warm and friendly staff, and I am proud to be part of the DLC team. DLC has an outstanding reputation in the community because of the foundation laid by the previous owner and her child-centered views. I share in her fundamental views of what child care should be and I plan to use my extensive childcare background and education to build on that foundation.
