"Discovery Day Academy was founded in 2006 by Elizabeth Garcia as an independent lab school for early learning research. Elizabeth Garcia’s experiences as a primary school teacher, interest in generational challenges and proximity to the business community attributed to her desire to make a difference for our nation’s youngest learners. The creation of a learning model and project based curriculum, The Discovery Method, focusing on inquiry, deeper learning and authentic experiences is the product of her work. Since the school’s establishment, it has grown to include campuses residing in Lee and Hendry counties, Florida."—www.discoverydayacademy.com/our-vision/
