At Discovery Point, we understand what a major decision this is for potential franchisees. It’s why we aim to give you as much information as possible so you can make a choice that helps you reach their goals.

One of the best ways to get a feel for which daycare franchise will be the right fit for you is to check out daycare franchise reviews. Understanding how current franchisees feel about their decision to partner with the franchisor offers a broader perspective on the path that lies ahead. 

Hearing what current franchise owners have to say will also help you understand what you can expect as a franchisee. From the types of support you’ll receive from the franchisor to what your day-to-day experience will look like, current franchisees will provide a unique perspective on what it means to own a franchise. Whatever your ultimate decision, you’ll feel confident knowing you did as much research as possible to come to the right conclusion.

Understand the Journey of a Franchisee Through Our Daycare Franchise Reviews

We’re proud of our daycare franchise reviews not only because they showcase our vision and values as a company, but also because they shed a light on the immense success our franchisees have had. Many of our franchisees switched careers in the middle of their lives to focus on their passion for nurturing children and promoting a sense of community in their local area. Others felt boxed in by corporate culture and wanted to find a way to break out of the typical 9-to-5 while comfortably supporting their families.

No matter what has brought you to this fork in the road, you’ll likely come across a daycare franchise review that resonates with your experience and gives you deeper insight into how owning a Discovery Point franchise can help you reach the destination of a more fulfilling career.

Here are some snippets of our daycare franchise reviews that highlight our franchisees’ journeys to business ownership:

“I actually worked in the consulting field for a little while and then obtained a job in a hospital…It just seemed like the perfect opportunity to utilize my passion for working with children and families and also my business expertise from working in the healthcare administration field. As a business owner, it is just an ideal job because I get to work with children, I get to work with families, I impact their learning. Every activity that we do, we get to plan, so it’s so exciting.”  

Michelle Malizioso, owner of Discovery Point Howell Ferry

“My first career was special education teaching with the county schools. Obviously, we looked into a lot of different places. We didn’t have a lot of money, and we were looking for places that offered us some support and resources. We looked at other franchises, and we settled on Discovery Point specifically because we felt supported from the minute that we got there. At the end of the day, I know I’ve had a good day because I do go home happy.”

 – Gregory Burdett, Discovery Point Zoar Road

“I enjoyed my 23 years in the hotel business prior to owning my center, but I find it so much more rewarding to now own a Discovery Point. It is the best decision I have ever made.” 

– Mike Keeney, Discovery Point Seven Oaks

Gain Insight Into Day-to-Day Life as a Discovery Point Owner

You may be wondering what your day will look like when you finally get to own your own business. Will you have the flexibility to schedule your own hours? Will you focus on building relationships with families and children, or concentrate on administrative tasks in the back office? 

While we’ll be sure to discuss these details with you in full during your introductory call with our franchise team and at your subsequent Discovery Day, reading through reviews can help you get a fuller picture of what to expect. 

Below are some details our franchisees have pointed out about the day-to-day routine of running a Discovery Point franchise location in their daycare franchise reviews:

“We have a lot of autonomy when it comes to running our centers. The franchise trusts us to decide what is best for our community, but, if we need them, they are there for us.” 

– Carmen Mesa, Discovery Point Trouble Creek and Discovery Point Terra Bella

“I love the fact that I am my own boss. Within the rules and guidelines, I still have the freedom to run my center how I see fit. I also have the time to be a part of my community and get involved with my children’s schools. You just have to have a love for it, and you have to be hands-on. I found that the more that I am there, with the kids and teachers, the better the center runs.”

 – Shanette Battle, Discovery Point Fayetteville

“My days are spent encouraging children’s love of learning. It doesn’t get any better than that!” 

– Robbin Plesher, Discovery Point Jones Bridge

Learn How Discovery Point Will Help You Thrive as a Franchise Owner

When it comes to learning about how we support our center owners, the best place to start is by asking the franchisees themselves. That’s why we make sure our Discovery Days include visits to area centers, so potential franchisees can speak to current owners face to face. In addition, we often post franchisee testimonials, so they can explain their experience in their own words.

Here’s a brief look at one owner’s experience with our franchising team over several years:

“I truly enjoy operating and owning a Discovery Point Center. The training I received before I opened was very thorough and hands on. I have learned and have grown over the years of owning my business. I have felt full support from the Corporate office any time that I was in need of advice and assistance in handling different situations.” 

– Yvette Rijo, Discovery Point Roswell

If you’re looking for a franchise opportunity that allows you to own a business in a rewarding industry while receiving support from industry experts, purchasing a Discovery Point franchise may be the right choice for you.
