About Us

Early education and interventions for children can lead to significantly better outcomes.
Early intervention is more efficient and produces higher academic gains than remedial programs.
High-quality early childhood education can provide the opportunity for increased academic achievement.

Our History

Banning Unified School district opened the doors of Florida Street Discovery Center in August of 2014, with classrooms for Transitional Kindergartners and 3- to 5-year-old students with special needs. In July 2016, we expanded our programs to add State Licensed Preschool classrooms for 3- and 4-year-old children. As a part of the Banning Unified School District family, we support the District Mission by establishing our School Mission, which is accomplished through our School Goals as outlined below.
