Discover The Possibilities

The History of Discovery Point

Development & Education with a Whole-Child Approach

Cliff and Diane Clark wanted to develop a daycare center based on a simple truth: children thrive if they are guided in an environment of love and nurturing. Their vision was to create a preschool that cared for children as much as the children’s own parents would. Their vision came to fruition in 1988, when the first Discovery Point was founded.

The first Discovery Point created an environment where children could learn, play, and grow in every way. Their whole-child approach focused on more than intellectual growth—the Clarks wanted to help children develop emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. Discovery Point was such a success that only two years later, a second location was opened. The year after, Discovery Point developed its approach with a franchise model.

Taking Our Child Care Philosophy All Over the Southeast

Discovery Point then expanded further across the Southeast. We can now be found in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida, with plans to grow in Texas and North Carolina. With a franchise model, we ensure that Discovery Point owners are never far away from their child development centers.

We believe that every owner ought to be involved in the lives of their community’s children. In fact, we guarantee that the local owner of your Discovery Point will be on campus on a daily basis, ensuring that the vision and mission we began in 1988 continues today.

Diane’s Devotion

Discovery Point founder Diane Clark passed away in October 2012, but her legacy lives on. Her lifelong passion was children’s education, with years of her personal and professional life devoted to public education. In light of her contribution to communities throughout the South, “Diane’s Devotion” was founded—a charitable initiative created to help underprivileged children.
