Meet the Team Behind Discovery Point Summerfield

Maryann Di Leo and Peggy Ballweg are sisters who left corporate America to open their daycare business together. Both have graduate degrees, but as mothers themselves they dreamed of operating a child care facility where the needs and perspectives of parents are recognized, and children could receive the best care.

Our director, Shannon Rush, has more than 22 years of experience in child care and child care management. She is in charge of managing daily operations at Discovery Point Summerfield. Our teaching staff has earned First Aid and CPR certification as well as education in early childhood development.

Nationally Recognized Curriculums Make Learning Fun

We offer three Florida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) classes with the Scholastic Big Day Pre-K curriculum. We also use Creative Curriculum® in our other classrooms, supplemented by ABCMouse.com in our Preschool 2 through VPK classes. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about our programs, including our before school and after school enrichment programs and our summer camps.

About Our Owners

Each Discovery Point center is a child care community. Each community is led by people devoted to the education and wellbeing of children, with every owner integral to maintaining our superior standards. That’s why they are on campus daily to ensure the vision and mission we launched in 1988, continues today. Besides nutritious meals, state-funded pre-K opportunities, and before and after school care with transportation options, we foster an environment that encourages imagination with a whole-child approach to education. Our owners have created a place where nothing is more important than the safety and happiness of your child.

Events

There’s nothing like a special event to make the school day, well…special! Although our owners and teachers conform to the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum® we integrate feedback from parents and take inspiration from the children to develop days that are like none other. One morning we’ll welcome a wonderful parade of costumes, or perhaps it’s a smiley face picture day! By channeling the children’s imagination, we ignite the spark of learning. Every Discovery Point child care center creates its own schedule considering the unique students in its care. Stay tuned to our events calendar to see what amazing adventures await!
