The Discovery Center celebrates 45 years with a new woodland play area

Ann Arbor preschool The Discovery Center continues its history of innovation in high-quality child care with the creation of a new woodland nature play area and a playground renovation and expansion. The new nature play area takes advantage of the Center’s 3.5-acre wooded site and includes paths through the woods and activity areas within. The playground renovation incorporates the latest materials (impact-absorbing turf and synthetic mulch) as well as child-friendly modifications such as peek-a-boo portholes, climbing towers, and large sandboxes with new shade canopies. Founded in 1974, one of the earliest high-quality child care centers in Michigan, it has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) since 1993.
