Downtown Children's Discovery Center Presents Mayor Kapszukiewicz with Key to City

The students at Children’s Discovery Center (CDC) created and presented a special gift for special guest, Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz. With the help of their teachers, the children made a clay mold and used resin to make Mayor Kapszukiewicz his very own key to the city. The key was meant to honor his dedication to early childhood education. In 1996, CDC founder Lois Rosenberry was gifted a key to the city by then mayor, Carty Finkbeiner.


CDC is a premier early care and education provider with several locations in the Toledo area, one of which is in downtown. The center uses Reggio Emilia educational model and enhances it by incorporating S.T.E.A.M. – science, technology, engineering, arts and math. The downtown location accommodates for infants (with a private room for nursing mothers) through pre-kindergarten and has served as the training site for national educators who seek to learn how to create innovative and inspiring spaces for young children.


The CDC has earned numerous awards and accolades over the year, some if which include:

  • Governor’s Award for Excellence in Enterprise
  • Master Leader in the Early Childhood field by Child Care Information Exchange magazine
  • Ethics in the Marketplace by the Better Business Bureau
  • Ohio’s Outstanding Child Care Director
