Our Turnkey Daycare Franchise: What to Expect

Witnessing a new business venture being built from the ground up can be incredibly thrilling. However, if you’re a first-time business owner or new to the industry, it can also be anxiety-inducing. At Discovery Point, we strive to make the lead up to business ownership a smoother ride. Our turnkey daycare franchise gives new franchisees comprehensive support with bringing their businesses to life. 

Rather than having to juggle everything from real estate contracts to construction management and equipment installation, our franchisees have an experienced team to depend on. This way, they can give their full attention to operational training. You’ll be able to focus on getting ready to put your best foot forward as a center manager and business owner.

Our Turnkey Daycare Franchises are the Full Package

Our daycare franchises are labeled “turnkey” for a reason. We want to make sure prospective franchise owners understand they won’t have to rely on their own know-how or resourcefulness to get their centers ready for action. 

With over 100 years of combined experience in the child care industry, our in-house support team is dedicated to guiding and advising franchisees through all processes and procedures leading up to their grand opening and every day thereafter.

As a franchisee, you’ll be completely equipped to manage your center at maximum capacity from the very beginning. Once you’ve opened your doors, you’ll have the advantage of ongoing support with marketing and operations, including regularly scheduled visits, monthly phone calls, staff consulting, and customized marketing materials. Each center receives assistance with state accreditation and is assigned an operations manager they can turn to with day-to-day questions.

Getting Your Daycare Franchise Up and Running

For the past three decades, Discovery Point has paved the way for business owners with a passion for child care. We help our franchisees build safe, reliable, community-oriented centers for the education and development of children. With such a long history in the industry, we know what it takes to ensure every Discovery Point center is built to last.

Franchisees can count on us to manage the buildout process for them, taking the lead on everything from site selection to supplies. Any issues that arise are handled by our knowledgeable team, saving new business owners from added stress and giving them the freedom to enjoy this milestone in their personal and professional growth.

As pioneers in educational child care, we’ve had the chance to determine what works and what doesn’t when it comes to building the best learning space for children. Our franchisees benefit from this extensive experience and never have to go through the trial-and-error process themselves. 

The steps listed below show how our turnkey franchise model gives franchisees well-rounded assistance with every stage of their business endeavor.

Choosing the Right Real Estate for a New Center

Selecting the right piece of real estate for your new center is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a business owner. After all, the mantra of “location, location, location” applies to child care as much as it does any other industry. Our real estate team will study potential locations and conduct detailed demographic analyses before getting your ultimate approval for any site.

During the course of site evaluation, we’ll consider:

  • How the property is situated within the community
  • Protected franchise territories
  • Size and zoning of the property
  • Competitors in the vicinity
  • Position in relation to schools and residential areas
  • Parking and traffic concerns

Thanks to our expertise, you won’t only own the structure of your child care center. You’ll be the proud owner of a prime piece of real estate that adds to the value of your business and enables you to develop long-term equity.

Designing and Constructing the Building

Discovery Point centers are designed to be both inviting and functional. We want families to feel right at home when they step through the doors. In addition, we understand the importance of details like maximizing space and visibility with an open design. We leverage our experience to construct centers that make day-to-day operations easier for center owners while promoting the comfort and security of students.

The Discovery Point Construction Team will take care of applying for and obtaining all permits required for the project. This means you don’t need to possess any knowledge in this area as a franchisee. 

Our team will fully investigate government-related requirements that could affect your location and will incorporate modifications into the building plans as needed. As we’ll oversee the entire project, including hiring and communicating with a qualified construction contractor. With Discovery Point, your new business venture will be in safe, skilled hands.

Equipping Our Daycare Franchises

Our turnkey daycare franchises include a full equipment package hand-picked by our experienced team with special consideration given to safety and durability. All equipment and supplies are delivered straight to the center and are off-loaded by a professional moving company according to a detailed floor plan.

Some of the many important items contained in this package are:

  • Age-appropriate toys
