"Before Morning" - A Discovery Day Adventure

You are invited to experience a Discovery Day, right in your own home!

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.

We offer you this online opportunity to experience in your own home a little foretaste of what we do at Discovery Days at Indian Creek.  We trust that you will enjoy the story and accompanying activities together during these wintery months. We invite you to enjoy this experience with your child at home and then come join us in person on February 7, March 14, April 4 and May 9.
