Kindergarten and School Age Programs

Before and After School

During our kindergarten and school age programs your child will experience a comfortable, relaxing environment where they can learn to build confidence, self esteem, character and social skills.  They will be provided with homework support, computer access and fitness activities.  We also intend to build their leadership and communication skills through various projects. Discovery Zone offers transportation to and from all McMinnville elementary schools. This program is available throughout the school year, including winter vacation and spring break.

Summer Camp

The Discovery Zone Summer Camp takes place every summer, beginning the Monday after the last day of public school and running for ten weeks. This program is for children entering first through sixth grade.

Unlike our other programs, which offer the option to enroll for any two to five weekdays that fit your family’s schedule, our summer camp program is full-time only. Children attend Monday through Friday each week. The most current information and pricing for summer camp is typically available beginning in June of each year.

During summer camp, your child will participate in field trips to various destinations such as the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, and the Hatfield Marine Science Center, as well as local excursions to the library and parks. Our program keeps older children busy with group projects, free choice time, off-campus adventures, and plenty of time outdoors.
