Just a couple of testimonials from Duck Hollow Discovery Learning Center parents:

    Our two children attended Duck Hollow over the last seven years and the staff         have become part of our family.  Duck Hollow is a warm and inviting place for the children where they can grow and learn new things.  The faculty and other staff members go above and beyond everyday .  The parents are involved in everything that the children do at the center and communication between the staff and parents is great.  The guidance and support from the teachers has helped to not only prepare our kids for Kindergarten, but to excel as they move on in school.

    My family and I made a wonderful decision sending our son to the Pre- K Counts program at Duck Hollow Learning Center. The teachers and staff here are all amazing. They really go out of their way to make parents more involved in the education of their child. My son learned a lot of new skills throughout the year here. He is now more than prepared to start kindergarten this fall. We could not have picked a better Pre School. We are now looking forward to sending our daughter to Duck Hollow Learning Center in the fall.

Welcome to the Duck Hollow Discovery Learning Center's home on web.  Duck Hollow is a private center established for the care and development of children ages 2 months to 8 years. Founded in 1987, we pride ourselves on providing a high quality, stimulating environment where children can explore and develop skills as well as motivate creativity. Our goal is to help prepare your children for the future.

Duck Hollow currently offers two locations for your convenience.  Duck Hollow Learning Center is located along the National Pike (Route 40), just west of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and The Cubs Den, a cooperative venture with Penn State University's Fayette Campus, is located just North of Uniontown along Route 119 within the Penn State Fayette Campus.  Both Centers are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, are National Association for the Education of Young Children
(NAEYC) accredited, and are Keystone STARS "4-Star" rated facilities.

Our well-trained staff provides diverse learners with a multitude of experiences that will enrich them socially, emotionally, morally, and intellectually. Our Center is a wonderful place for children to learn and grow, to develop self-esteem and friendships, and to celebrate and share accomplishments. Our students leave with a sound academic foundation, a lifelong love of learning, and a positive self-worth.

Our approach to education is based on discovery learning. The students will learn through hands-on activities by exploring our diverse learning centers.  Our literature-based curriculum also places emphasis on making connections in all subject areas. We use our stories, characters, settings, plots and language to construct our lessons in math, science, writing, art, and dramatic play.  This allows your child to envelop all aspects of the story.

Our facility has Labor and Industry approval and not only meets, but exceeds all state safety requirements. Some facility safety features include emergency exits with safety doors, heat and smoke detecting system wired directly to the police and fire departments, and a monitoring observation system.

Please take some time to explore our site and see what we have to offer.  If you have any questions, or would like to come tour one of our facilities you can reach us by phone at 724-438-6123 or by email at info@duckhollow.net.
