Creepy Carrots - A Discovery Day Adventure

A Virtual Discovery Day Experience

Discovery Days at Indian Creek School are an opportunity for young children, ages two to five, and their families to experience our Early Childhood Program. We offer on-campus Discovery Days six times during the school year. Members of our Early Childhood Team lead these sessions offering a chance to enjoy firsthand our awesome faculty and our engaging, experiential and developmentally appropriate program that we offer every day. This year we are offering this online session to provide a glimpse into the types of things we actually will do together during on-site Discovery Days. We invite you to enjoy this experience with your child at home and then come join us in person on November 8, December 13, February 7, March 14, April 4 and May 9.
