Children's Discovery Center

Mosaic Life Stories

The Children’s Discovery Center reflects the Foundation’s multi-dimensional “why.” We are committed to building healthy, thriving communities for generations to come. We are in the business of championing education and ensuring exceptional health care is available, right here in our region. The Children’s Discovery Center is also consistent with the broader Mosaic Life Care system pursuit to serve the region as a life care innovator.

The Children’s Discovery Center is truly a unique public-private partnership and while a large portion of the funding needed to bring the Center to fruition has been secured, private philanthropy will take us to the finish line. Mosaic Life Care Foundation invites you to join us by investing in this exciting project and ultimately, the health of our region.

“In all the places we have lived, there were Children’s Discovery Centers and we loved taking our children to encourage their curiosity and creativity. The opportunity to have a Children’s Discovery Center in our hometown is amazing and exactly what our community needs.

With a young family of our own, we need all the help we can get to teach our boys how to establish a positive physical and mental health routine. We are always looking for resources that will help us in this endeavor. Interacting with exhibits and participating in programming at the Discovery Center will enhance our efforts at home to teach our kids how to make good decisions for their mind and body.”
