What We Do
Exceptional Daycare Franchising Since 1988
Daycare Franchising that Sets High Standards of Care
Our vision for daycare franchising at Discovery Point is to raise the quality of care and education of children in the communities we serve.
We believe that Discovery Point’s success in the child care and daycare industry depends on the success of each franchisee. Our proven business model includes everything you need to know about starting a child care business and operating it as a successful Discovery Point center.
A Turnkey Daycare Franchising Opportunity
Our turnkey package is a vital component of the Discovery Point Advantage. As a franchisee, your business has already been designed, developed, and rigorously tested in every type of environment.
When you sign on with our child care franchise, you’re getting a business model with proven success. With every detail covered, from curriculum to floorplans and robust security protocol, you’ll be ready for enrollment from your first day onward.
The core values of Discovery Point daycare franchising place us a step above the rest. Rooted in our philosophy is the belief that our company as a whole, and each of our educational franchise locations, has the power to make a positive impact on families and their children’s future.
Our Child Care Philosophy
Through daycare franchising, we aim to provide educational child care combined with strong family partnerships in an active, engaged, and fun environment that promotes a love of learning.
Our philosophy in child development focuses on children’s curiosity. At the foundation of their learning, curiosity is what enables children to become independent thinkers. When children have the opportunity to explore the world around them, they can become better problem solvers. Our philosophy incorporates the following elements:
- Play and socialization
Discovery Point’s low child-to-teacher ratios allow students to develop strong and nurturing relationships. When children feel loved, they feel free to discover more about themselves and safe to try new things. Similarly, when parents know their children are receiving the attention, affection, and approval they deserve, they feel free to pursue their own goals and ambitions.
Our daycare franchising advantage is clear: a profound yet simple approach to child care backed by scientific research, years of child development theory, and cutting-edge educational curriculum.
We offer prospective franchisees the following advantages:
- Industry Leadership.
With over thirty years of experience in daycare franchising, we are pioneers in the industry and are ready to share our first-hand knowledge with you.

A Preschool Curriculum that Fosters a Natural Love for Learning
Since 1988, Discovery Point has recognized the positive impact an effective preschool curriculum has on a child’s development by helping them become creative, confident thinkers in a rich environment of discovery.
Discovery Point Connections®
Our own supplementary preschool curriculum is focused on early language development and literacy. Weekly thematic units foster a love for books, music, poetry, and writing. Language is also reinforced as a crucial connection to math, science, problem solving, and social-emotional development in a child care setting.
We partner with Teaching Strategies® to implement the Creative Curriculum® System for Preschool, a nationally recognized preschool curriculum program for early childhood development.
By creating opportunities for hands-on exploration and discovery, this preschool curriculum builds a foundation for critical thinking. Each component of the curriculum is intentional, proven, and grounded in scientific research and child development theory.
Our National Advertising Program promotes your child care center while supplementing your local marketing efforts. We provide resources to every Discovery Point owner in two ways:
- Our national advertising efforts build your credibility and brand effectiveness
- Our extensive library of customizable, pre-approved, and press-quality marketing resources allow you to create a high-level marketing campaign tailored to your neighborhood.
You can have our professionally produced marketing materials customized for your specific needs and then print them at your center or through your preferred vendor. Our daycare franchising marketing library will become a vital part of your business’s longevity and revenue-building efforts as well as a fun way to generate community involvement.
Professional Advocacy in the Industry
The leadership of Discovery Point continues to grow the influence of our franchisees’ centers by building connections with various organizations in the child care industry. For example, our current relationship with the Georgia Child Care Association has been a boon to our franchisees in Georgia.
Our leaders persistently advocate for both children and franchisees by promoting quality child care practices across the country and increasing the reach and ultimate impact of our daycare franchising opportunities.
