A committee of volunteers meets regularly to plan and take action on Discovery’s goals and objectives of; “All Naugatuck children birth to age 8 will be safe, healthy and successful learners”

Naugatuck Discovery proudly presents community and family awareness programs during our Parent Toolbox series held approximately 4 times a year, professional development opportunities for preschool and kindergarten teachers held bi monthly throughout the year, the completion of the Transition to Kindergarten Plan implemented by the Board of Education in May of 2010 and the addition of our teacher resource lending library in the fall of 2011.

Discovery is in the finishing stages of our Blueprint for Young Children , which will be unveiled in early 2012 .The focus of Discovery’s efforts are the health, safety and success of our early learners birth to age 8. The Blueprint follows our mission to help Naugatuck children succeed in all facets of their growth and development by strengthening the community of families, individuals and organizations who nurture and educate Naugatuck children. Discovery envisions Naugatuck as a town where children grow into happy and productive citizens contributing to the success of the community.
