Discoveries Learning Center

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Discoveries Learning Center! We’ve been a model of excellence in early care and education in Santa Barbara for more than 30 years, and our teachers strive to ignite a love of learning through our NAEYC-accredited curriculum. We are an Outdoor Classroom Project Demonstration Site, where we spend the majority of our days outside! Our outdoor learning spaces let children interact with their natural surroundings – we’re home to two chickens, a corn snake, birds, fish, and other critters! Come visit our beautiful campus to see it for yourself! We are located just down the street from the Java Station on Hollister Ave, and conveniently located less than one mile from the 101 freeway.
