Welcome to Discovery Place, a daycare and preschool facility located in Jefferson City, MO.

Our Facility

Established in 1990, Discovery Place is a trusted daycare and preschool center serving children from Jefferson City, MO and surrounding areas. The daycare has 8 classrooms; each serves a different age group. Additional large, shared spaces allow for mixed-age play twice per day. Discovery Place daycare and preschool accepts children from 6 weeks to 6 years old.

Hours of Operation

Hours of operation are from 7:00AM to 5:30PM, Monday – Friday. Discovery Place reserves 6 holidays per year and has only closed 3 times in all of our years for inclement weather. We are open on Christmas Eve and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Our playground is oversized and ready for biking, running, and imaginative games.

Learning time includes exploration and age-appropriate curriculum: math, language, phonics, free writing, science, self-help, and most importantly, developing social skills.

We look forward to sharing more about Discovery Place with you. Call us at 573-634-3838 or drop in for a visit at 1448 Aaron Court, Jefferson City MO.

What Parents Say About Discovery Place

We LOVE our Discovery Place family!

Seriously, as a parent if you are looking for something more than childcare, something more like family, you can find it here. The staff have been nothing short of amazing for our 3 girls. Highly recommend!
Jamie Y.

I love Discovery Place!!

I have sent all 3 of my children to them and have recommended them every chance I get. The teachers are great and have many years experience caring for and teaching young children. If you are in need of child care from 8 weeks to graduating to kindergarten. They are the BEST!
