Our New Daycare Franchise in Bradenton & Expanding Across the Area

We’re excited to introduce a new member of the Discovery Point family in the Sunshine State! Our franchise has recently added a location in Bradenton, Florida that will soon experience its grand opening. This daycare franchise in Bradenton is an excellent addition to the local community as there is a significant need for high-quality child care in this area. We look forward to seeing more Discovery Point franchise locations take root in Manatee County and across the North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton metropolitan area.

About the Owners of Our Daycare Franchise in Bradenton

Known as Discovery Point Twelve Oaks, this brand new child care center is owned and operated by Dr. Roger Clough and Mrs. Robin Clough. The Cloughs are relocating from upstate New York, where Dr. Clough worked as a Superintendent of Schools for over a decade. The Cloughs are excited to put down roots in the Friendly City of Bradenton with their two teenage children.

Dr. Clough has extensive experience in early childhood education and is ready to put this expertise to use as the owner of a community-oriented child care center. While working as a Superintendent, he helped facilitate a series of important programs for young students.

Broadening his district’s Pre-Kindergarten program and introducing Junior Kindergarten are both achievements that have had a lasting impact on children in his former school district in New York State. Dr. Clough also helped initiate a STEM program at his district’s elementary schools and worked to establish after-school programs and mentoring opportunities for young children. Dr. Clough also worked to underscore the importance of early literacy by adding reading teachers and teaching assistants to his district.

Dr. Clough shows such enthusiasm for early childhood education it’s no surprise his next step was to open an education-driven child care center. “I’ve always been inspired by the notion that the measure of a civilization is how it treats its youngest members,” he said. By providing exceptional care in a nurturing environment built specifically for the comfort and development of children, Dr. Clough will continue pursuing his mission to help the next generation thrive.

Thanks to his lengthy experience in the field, Dr. Clough is able to recognize high-quality curriculum and understand the crucial components that go into effective early childhood education. “Children should experience a learning environment that will help them grow from an infant to an adult,” he said. “I feel the curriculum programs created by Discovery Point will help nurture so many children at an early age and provide them with the tools they need to succeed in the future.”

Dr. Clough will be supported by his wife in the operation of this new daycare franchise in Bradenton. Mrs. Clough has 25 years of experience working for the United States Customs Service and Homeland Security. She will leverage her administrative and management skills to encourage smooth and efficient daily operations at the Bradenton child care center, helping keep the main focus on the needs of each individual child.

Bringing Our Franchise to Bradenton and Beyond

Discovery Point Twelve Oaks is conveniently located just off of I-75 and State Road 70, making it an ideal child care solution for families across the Bradenton area. However, we believe there are many more opportunities to open successful child care centers in Manatee County and throughout the North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton metropolitan area.

There’s an obvious need for child care in Manatee County, which as of 2016 was home to nearly 20,000 children aged four and under. In addition, over 35% of households with children in this county are single-parent households. With access to the high-quality child care services Discovery Point is known for, working parents can have the support they need to pursue their professional goals while maintaining peace of mind about the care and education of their children.

Discovery Point Twelve Oaks will help fill this need. As the 48th active Discovery Point child care center in the southeastern U.S. and the 13th in Florida, we’re excited for this location to bring our child care philosophy to a new community in the Sunshine State.

The opening of this location is an exciting milestone for Discovery Point as we continue to expand our daycare franchise in Bradenton and beyond.
