Meet Our Teachers

For high quality educational child care, you can count on our staff at Discovery Point.

Janice Whitley


Janice Whitley has held the position of Director since our center opened in 2006, but her tenure in childcare is more than 30 years. While looking for a job in the late 1970’s, she wandered into a childcare center and that was it, Janice says. I knew from that moment, childcare was going to be my profession. I love children; they make me happy. I respect their feelings and appreciate their honesty. Ms. Janice is more than just a valuable employee; her dedication extends not only to the children but to their families as well.

Tina Hix


Ms. Tina first came to work at Discovery Point in 2009. She was the lead teacher in the one-year old room but found her place to be in the infant room where she taught for many years before becoming the Assistant Director. Her journey in childcare began long before coming to Discovery Point as she has been in this industry for over 25 years. She is currently the director and one of the bus drivers. Ms Tina says, I love driving the kids to school each morning.

Mr. Lynn


Mr. Lynn is one of our Bus Drivers for our school children and field trips. Mr. Lynn also assists with afternoons in our after-school programs, when necessary. Mr. Lynn was born and raised in Waverly, NY and worked in the flooring industry for the same employer for 28 years. He then retired and moved to North Carolina to be near his grandchildren. Along with many experiences, Mr. Lynn drove for Ft. Bragg, NC, driving a bus for the school-age transportation for the daycare center and all extracurricular activities. Mr. Lynn is married and has two daughters, 3 granddaughters, and one great grandson. His hobbies and interests include woodworking, yard work, sailing, and spending time with the grandchildren.
