Careers at Discovery Time Learning Center

The Top 5 Reasons to Work at Discovery Time Learning Center

No two days are the same at Discovery Time Learning Center. Our teachers serve our children and families with an aim of exceeding their expectations daily. Our fast-paced learning environment means that multi-tasking with a smile must be natural for our teachers. Meeting the challenges pays off intrinsically but team outings, teacher spirit week, zumba sessions during PD, monthly appreciation meals and our famous candy basket help us to play just as hard as we work.

We believe training should be fun, motivational, relevant and provide an opportunity for educators to push the refresh button. In the last year, Discovery Time provided 2 opportunities for paid training in Florida and a third conference opportunity in Richmond. This is all in addition to 3 on-site staff development days and the opportunity for all employees to sign up for any of the 100s of trainings offered from the State of Virginia each year. 

At Discovery Time Learning Center, we take classroom excellence seriously. In fact, we are one of the first early learning centers in the area to reward excellence in a real way. In addition to a competive base compensation package that includes health insurance, paid holidays and leave, and tuition reimbusement, our teachers have the opportunity to earn up to an additional $2000 in annual bonuses, $1000 of which is based on standardized performance expectations.

We set high expectations and our teachers rise to the occasion, growing in the process – it’s that simple!

We are awesome! Really! Our leadership team has worked tirelessly to build a fantastic group of teachers who are committed to our parents and children and will do whatever it takes as we strive to be the best. In between wiping faces and shaking musical instruments, our teachers SMILE, SING, DANCE and HAVE FUN TEACHING to ensure that our children play, learn, and go home super happy. We are a team of true early childhood professionals who LOVE what we do each day!
