User Rating: 5 out of 5 stars by Jerry 02/01/2012 I don't know where "Jane689" gets her information, but I am a former prosecutor whose primary responsibility was the prosecution of CPS offenses. My kids have been going to Discovery Learning Center for upwards of 7 1/2 years. We investigated the best daycare centers in McKinney, settled on Discovery, and we have had nothing but good experiences with the owners, the managers, and the staff at Discovery. As to a CPS investigation, anyone can make a wild accusation that CPS must respond to (which is what I am certain this was) and that can technically be classified an "investigation." However, in my experience in this area, unfounded accusations made against a daycare center are usually made by a parent or caretaker who was reported to CPS themselves, who probably put the marks and bruises on the child in the first place, and are trying to cover their own abuses and lack of supervision by trying to make it look like it was someone else (i.e., the daycare center) that was at fault for injuring the child rather than themselves. Finally, in a situation as important as this (an allegation of child abuse), it is curious that "B" doesn't have the resolve to list her name so that CPS officials can contact her to determine the veracity of her accusations. Nevertheless, you can be sure that her attorney will mention this "investigation" (probably prompted by his client) as evidence that his client didn't abuse her children. Signed, Jerry McClain

I toured this preschool center about 3 months ago and spoke to the director, I did not get a good feeling so I looked elsewhere. Then about 3 weeks ago I decided to tour again and found the new director very pleasant and all the teachers very happy & helpful so I enrolled. This was the best thing for my family. It's so nice to know that no matter what time of day I walk into the building (which is often because I work in the area) I am greeted in a respectful way, with a smile and something positive said, plus I come home everyday with beautiful art work to display on my refrigerator. I love Top Of The World Preschool and so glad to have taken a second tour. I wrote the above statement on 12/08/08, I was very happy then and I'm still happy. It's great to know that the same care that I received from day one still continues and Top Of the World just keeps getting better and better. I love the daily curriculum and the extended learning activities all the teachers are teaching the children, it really shows that the staff at Top of the World really do care for all the children and go above and beyond what is expected of excellent teachers. WAY TO GO TOP OF THE WORLD PRESCHOOL!!!!
My older son is 3 1/2 years old. He has been going to Discovery for almost 3 years. I was going to start him there @ 6 weeks but just couldn't let him go to strangers even though my office manager's daughter had gone there for years and another co-worker used to work there and her daughters have gone there since birth. So, my mom kept him. Then he started DLC at 9 months. I could not be happier with Discovery Learning Center. They don't just baby sit the kids all day. They ARE actually learning. He amazes daily with the things that come out of his mouth. From songs he sings to words he spells. 3 years old... he spells his name and is learning to write it. I have loved every teacher he has had. I now have a 3 month old and I almost feel guilty for being so quick to drop him off and leave him on his first day, at the age of 7 weeks. But, that is how comfortable I am with the girls that are keeping him. Of course I missed him but I knew he was in good hands. Not to mention his "teacher" is the mother of my other son's best buddy. I don't feel like Discovery is just a company that I pay to watch my kids. They feel like family to me, part of my village helping to raise them.
