DISCOVERY DAY CARE CENTRE was originally started by Leslee Gale and her elder daughter Leigh-Ann in 1995. Janice Hutton was our first “official” staff member, and is still with us today.
After matriculating in 1998 Leslee’s younger daughter Mia joined the business, and assisted us for three years before leaving to study for a degree in education in 2002. Mia has since qualified and after teaching at our local primary school for two years, rejoined us at Discovery Day Care Centre in April 2008.
In July 2007 Leslee’s husband Brian joined the business. Brian has taken over the responsibility of staffing and maintenance. He also assists with the sporting commitments of the older boys, the holiday programme and outings.
In January 2006 we bought another property in Edgemead and it became the premises for APOLLO AFTERCARE. Children from Discovery Day Care Centre are guaranteed enrolment at Apollo Aftercare from Grade 1. Leigh-Ann now heads up that facility.
In March 2008 we were chosen by Century City Property Owners Association and Rabie Property Developers as the preferred operator of an educare centre in Century City. ENDEAVOUR EDUCARE CENTRE opened in October 2008. In February 2010 the youngest of the Gale family Adam joined the business as the Manager of Endeavour Educare.
January 2011 saw the exciting opening of our 4th Facility which is known as DISCOVERY TOO! which is situated just 2 houses down from Disovery Daycare in Monte Vista. Discovery Too! is now managed by Rosalind Gale who has been with the business for 5 years and subsequently married Adam in 2012.
All 4 branches now fall under the SHUTTLE KIDZ group which is owned and personally managed by the Gale family. Our staff complement totals 52 staff in total, from cooks to teachers and assistants, as well as 2 full time handy men to deal with the ongoing maintenance at our 4 facilities.
