Discoveries Learning Center

Welcome to Our Center

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.

Our Community

Our families come from nearby communities, including Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Carpinteria. Located near San Marcos High School and a few miles away from La Cumbre Plaza, we're easy to get to for drop-off and pick-up.


Our Graduates

Children graduate Bright Horizons programs with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school. In surveys, kindergarten and first grade teachers report that Bright Horizons graduates are enthusiastic learners who are socially and academically ready for the years ahead.
