Program Mission
Discovery Club's mission is to provide out-of-school time programming in a safe, fun, caring environment that supports children's learning and development.

Children participate in a variety of academic enrichment, recreational and cultural activities that informally support learning and social development. Life and social skills, such as cooperation, teamwork, and problem solving are fostered in a caring and accepting environment. Additionally, Discovery Club staff connect with school-day teachers to better support children's learning, including scheduled homework times.

Discovery Club is fee-based program administered by the Community Education Department of Saint Paul Public Schools.

Where is Discovery Club? (click image to enlarge)
Any student enrolled at a Saint Paul Public school without Discovery Club may apply to hub locations within the same district area.

Update:  Discovery Club at Riverview and Mississippi will not open for fall 2014.  Pre-K extended day care will not be available at Nokomis Discovery Club fall 2014.
