LIFE & Discovery provides a dynamic setting where instructors are passionate about bestowing their wisdom and knowledge upon their students in a fun learning atmosphere. Our selection of course offerings are purposefully eclectic, and we look to fill the thirst for knowledge of both children and adults. At LIFE & Discovery, we believe that learning should be a life-long process — not something that stops once you graduate from school or enter the workforce.
Take a moment to browse our website. As an active community partner, we appreciate new ideas for courses from the general public. We custom design enrichment programs for educational, professional, and general interests. If you would like to see something specific offered through L&D, please let us know — we would love to hear from you!

It is such a humbling experience raising our children. We start
worrying about them from the moment we hear the news that they are coming into our lives. We begin planning for them even before they enter the world. Our lives revolve around their total well being, sometimes beyond their independence. We want to give them our best, we wish them to get the best, and we want them to be the best that they can be.
Yet, we feel challenged everyday. The world’s distance is shortened by the superhighway of the internet. It gets even smaller as we are reached daily by the diversity of different cultural influences. Our children grow up at a faster pace than our own generation. In many situations, we find ourselves not well equipped to enrich them due to our lack of technical skills or simply the lack of time. We look to our schools and community to help this new generation to succeed in the 21st century. As parents, we know institutions of learning are maximizing their resources to meet the growing needs of our children. The tasks ahead can be enormous. Unfortunately, we may not always be able to find what works best for our children in terms of time, quality programs, and learning environment.
Frederick is now the second largest city in Maryland. Flexible and specialized enrichment programs may help to bridge the gaps and provide additional learning options. ”LIFE & Discovery” — Learning Institute For Enrichment & Discovery — is a diverse educational entity located right here in our Frederick community. Our mission brings together people who share a passion to learn and to teach. We believe that there are many under-utilized community-based resources that would be beneficial to our children’s life long learning. Life & Discovery provides a dynamic setting where teachers are passionate about bestowing their wisdom and knowledge to their students in a fun learning atmosphere. We custom design our programs to best provide for our teachers, students and their families. Our vision is of a learning institute that fosters a partnership among teachers, students and families. Our overarching goal is to enrich children’s lives with the fun of learning more about the world and each other.
We welcome your suggestions and participation.
