Our History

Development & Education with a Whole-Child Approach

Cliff and Diane Clark wanted to develop a child care center based on a simple truth: children thrive if they are guided in a loving and nurturing environment. Their vision was to create a preschool curriculum 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.

Creating a child care center 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 franchise model.
