During a Discovery Day, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Discovery Point main office as well as tour one of our centers.. This event allows for ample interaction with our corporate support team as well as current franchisees to give you a better idea of what a day in the life of a Discovery Point owner looks like.
Step 5. Officially purchase your franchise.
Once you’ve been awarded your franchise, it’s time to get started with your franchise agreement. Our long-term franchising agreement spans 20 years and has several options for 2-year renewals. As you execute the agreement, you’ll also take the important step of paying the initial franchise fee.
Step 6. Secure necessary financing.
Thanks to the stability of the child care industry and our brand’s reputation for success, Discovery Point franchises are appealing to banks and lending institutions. This helps ensure you’ll have several loan options to choose from.

We also undertake an extensive analysis of the surrounding areas to better understand how local demographics could affect the business.
Step 8. Construct and develop your center.
Watching your center come to life is both exciting and rewarding. We take on the responsibility of overseeing project construction, so you can spend this time focusing on the future. As part of the process, our construction team will obtain any necessary permits and complete state licensing requirements.
Step 9. Begin new-owner training.
We’ll take you through our four-week training program for new owners to prepare you for your new role. Training is done both in-classroom and on-site in our centers and covers everything from complying with state regulations to marketing your business and understanding the flow of day-to-day operations.
Step 10. Celebrate your grand opening.
We provide all franchisees with a fully-stocked equipment package, including instructions for setting up each classroom, to make getting ready to open a cinch.
