Discovery Point Honors Top Owners at Owners’ Summit

DULUTH, Ga. – Discovery Point Child Development Center, a leader in educational childcare, honored its top franchisees and centers at the annual Owners’ Summit recently in Atlanta. The franchisees were presented awards in recognition of their outstanding achievement throughout the year.

Franchisee Pauline Webster of Acworth, Georgia, was honored with the President’s Award in recognition of outstanding and consistent achievement as a successful center owner.

“Pauline has demonstrated superiority in developing and supporting the Discovery Point brand and values,” said Discovery Point founder and CEO Cliff Clark. “Her center reflects the values of a Center of Excellence, but has also implemented programs in order to better support parents, families, and the community. These programs best represent the values of Discovery Point.”

Salim and Andrea Karnaby of Odessa, Florida, received the Center of Excellence Award. The award is based on criteria that includes exceeding Discovery Point’s quality expectations as well as meeting state licensing standards, and demonstrating excellence in care and education. Points were awarded in each area with the Karnaby’s center, Discovery Point Suncoast Crossing, accumulating the highest honors receiving the Center of Excellence Award.
