The Children’s Discovery Center reopened its downtown Toledo Center on the third floor of 338 North St. Clair Street. The energy of Toledo’s downtown revitalization has inspired the renovation.

Children’s Discovery Center has been serving the greater Toledo Community since 1982 by providing early education and childcare. Their award-winning philosophy —which includes STEAM and Reggio Emilia inspired education— has been nationally recognized. “We are delighted to present the new downtown Children’s Discovery Center to the community,” stated CEO Lois Rosenberry. “Our centers are unique and provide children with award-winning educational programs and parents with the peace of mind that their children are being cared for in a loving and stimulating environment.” 

The updated center offers benefits beyond other early education providers. This dynamic facility is innovative and unique with plenty of natural light, stimulating learning pods and a wonderful outdoor playground.

Some of the amenities include:

  • Art and literature opportunities
  • Pre-School and Pre-K science lab
  • Specialty enrichment classes
  • Rooftop playground with stack and build, plant and grow, art, climbing and trike stations
  • Private breastfeeding area

In addition, Pre-School and Pre-K children will take part in a monthly educational program at the Toledo Zoo. The Zoo’s program offers children the opportunity to develop science process skills and cultivate self-confidence through animal observation, play, outdoor exploration and discovery.

“The downtown center gives parents the opportunity to have their children close to their workplace,” stated Angel Heath, director of the downtown center. “This is especially nice for new mothers who are breastfeeding and parents who would like to stop by to visit their children during the day.”

The center will be open to children beginning July 9th.
