After looking at other preschools Discovery Tree in Springville was much nicer and more professional looking than the others. The added accessibility & communication through their app is awesome. Being able to pay on it and check on your child’s progress through the day is really helpful and reassuring (you got her to nap?! Awesome!). So far we love them and are happy with our decision!

We love Discovery Tree! My daughter is always happy to be there and comes home in a good mood and talking all about her day. They have a good schedule that fosters learning, play, rest, and eating, which I think really helps set the kids up to have a good day and know what to expect. I am so glad we chose Discovery Tree to take her to, it is more than worth the extra drive we make from Provo. Thank you!!

We know our son is safe, getting fed good meals, and that he is learning a lot, that he has good friends and high-quality teachers who remember him and care about him. The only time we had a little bit of trouble was mostly because our son was being insanely stubborn about potty training, but we communicated his needs to his teacher and she was responsive and supportive of our wishes for him, which we really appreciated.

DTA has been a wonderful place for our child to learn and grow. Great caretakers and leadership. So grateful that DTA does not require nap time for 4+ years old children. After calling dozens of daycare facilities, that does not require older kids to take a nap during the day-game changer for our child! Our child is anxiety free because there is no required nap time and they enjoy the activities, friends, and teachers they have at DTA.

My kids have been in the summer camp 2 years now and they both absolutely love it. They ask me every year if they can go back. The summer camp has so much for them to do because they go out somewhere everyday. I like that they communicate over an app during the day so you always know where your kids are at, if there's any issues, and they send pictures. It makes me feel comfortable being able to see that during work.

The staff here is great. They are very attentive and helpful. You can tell they take pride in taking the very best care of the children. They go above and beyond and also make sure to plan fun events for the kids. They also host an annual Halloween party not only for those at the daycare, but the entire community. I would definitely recommend Discovery Tree Academy!

I'm sure most parents can relate that choosing a daycare is a major task and oftentimes comes with uncertainty, fear and even guilt. They have played an incredible role in my children's lives and I am forever grateful that they have allowed me to be a working mom without the guilt - because my kids love this place! I have been able to know that my children were well cared for and loved in my absence. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

My toddler went here for a year and a half and we were absolutely thrilled with our experience. He loved coming and the staff was always so friendly and prepared. They do a lot to help developing social skills and have so many fun learning activities for the kids. I would highly recommend for anyone seeking childcare, it worked great for my 9-5 job.

My little guy has been going here for several years. They are really more like a school than a daycare. They have a set schedule with themes of the week and I'm always impressed with facts and things my son will randomly say to me about all kinds of topics. I've noticed him being way ahead of other kids his age that we have interactions with thanks to the teachers at Discovery. I recommend them to everyone who asks!

I LOVE DTA! Both my kids have been attending since they were only a few months old. I absolutely love how organized and maintained the facility is, how happy the employees are, and how happy my kids are to go every morning. I have not had very many concerns but when I do they are always addressed immediately. I have been very happy with my experience over the years and have recommended them to many of my friends and family.
