Focused on fulfilling the need for quality child care, we put our expertise in education, construction and business to work. With our commitment and capacity to address the critical requirements of today’s busy families, the Discovery Point franchise opportunity soon became a reality.
The founders of Discovery Point Child Development Centers, Cliff and Diane Clark, based their philosophy of caring for your children as if they were their own. Creating an environment where children learn, play and develop, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically. Children will thrive if they are guided in an environment rooted in love and nurturing. .
Discovery Point Child Development centers opened its first location in 1988. The second location opened in 1990 and franchise sales began in 1991.
Discovery Point is actively looking to expand into new states like Texas and North Carolina, as well as new areas in Georgia and Florida.
Sadly, Diane Clark passed away in October, 2012. Diane’s passion was education of children. She was a former educator who spent much of her professional career in public education prior to establishing Discovery Point.
A charitable initiative was established in her name in December, 2012. “Diane’s Devotion” was created in her honor to help those less fortunate children, and share the love Diane embraced for children and for learning.
We believe that Discovery Point’s success in the childcare business depends upon the success of each franchisee. Our proven business model includes everything you need to know about starting a daycare business and operating it as a successful Discovery Point center. Our turnkey package is a vital component of the Discovery Point Advantage™.The core values of Discovery Point Franchising place us a step above the rest. Rooted in our philosophy is our belief that our company, and each educational franchise, has a positive impact on children and their future.
From the moment you are awarded a Discovery Point franchise, you will have a team of experts ready to guide you from site selection and construction through your opening day. The operations team will provide you with a four-week training program and assistance through the child care licensing process, but the support doesn’t end there. The franchise team further guides you through your center start-up and grand opening, and then continues to provide operational support for your center every day thereafter.
All Discovery Point franchise owners are fully trained and supported in using our highly respected Creative Curriculum, a practical, developmentally appropriate learning program that reflects the most innovative thinking. Unlike some daycare centers, Discovery Point’s curriculum provides all of the tools to encourage exploration and follow a daily routine schedule, and also produces a creative interactive environment.
We do not grow our franchise group just to increase numbers. We want to be sure that our franchisees are well supported and that each owner has the same passion for quality child development as we do. Unlike some child care franchise opportunities, Discovery Point is with you every step of the way, from construction of the center to operational licensing, and unparalleled support after your center is open for business. We provide you with a turnkey business package, simplifying the start-up process for you, which allows you to focus on marketing your business while we take care of the heavy lifting. We don’t just want you to buy a franchise, we want you to be successful.
