About Discovery Point
Discovery Point is a modern child-care and development center that focuses on meeting each child's individual needs with an experience that caters best to their unique learning style. By creating and refining a childcare center environment that allows children to learn, play, communicate, and grow in every way, the Discovery Point "whole child" approach focuses on more than just intellectual growth by helping children to develop emotionally, socially, and physically.
Values & History
Founders Cliff and Diane Clark saw a real need for quality child development centers near their home in the Atlanta metro area, and in 1988 Discover Point was born. With the understanding that children need to feel loved and cared for before any effective learning can occur, the Clark family opened their first location with a commitment to meeting each unique child's individual needs by tailoring the experience to best accommodate different learning styles. Now with over 30 years of industry knowledge under a well-known and recognized brand, the Discovery Point franchise has numerous operating locations throughout the southeast and is accepting franchise ownership applications across the country.
Each week roughly 12.5 million children in the US attend daily child-care programs. With about 70% of mothers with children under 18 working outside the home, the US child-care industry brought in about $56 billion in total revenue for 2019 alone, with that number slated to grow by as much as 3.5% annually over the next five years.
