Fostering creativity in childhood
All children should have access to arts programs and experience the process of being creative.
The arts play a critical role in children’s emotional, social and intellectual development. We believe play and creativity promote skills our future leaders will need such as imagination, passion & critical thinking.
With over 20 years experience working in the film and animation industries our founders bring a wealth of creative experience to Discovery and understand the demand for innovation in the future workforce. Our team is rounded out by an exceptional team of OCT educators and skilled craftspeople.
We aim to inspire, whether at home with the help of our Creativity Corner, or at a program hosted at our beautiful centre.
Where are we located?
Our education centre is located in a converted family home overlooking beautiful green space and surrounded by private conservation land.
Our cozy home-like environment is complete with gardens, outdoor play areas, and plenty of nature to explore.

Alternative? Montessori? Waldorf? Unschooling? Which one is best for your child? I’m often asked what our teaching philosophies are, and where the ideology comes from.
