Discover the Possibilities with Us!

Discovery Point Symmes has been serving children and families in the Riverview area since June 2009. At our child care center in Riverview, our approach combines structure and safety with the freedom for children to explore their own interests and the confidence to grow their independence and to take initiatives as students.

Meet Our Child Care Center Team in Riverview

Sisters and moms, Maryann Di Leo and Peggy Ballweg own Discovery Point Symmes. Together, they dreamed of owning a daycare center that would offer care from a parent’s point of view.

Maryann and Peggy have earned graduate degrees but decided to leave the corporate world to run Discovery Point Symmes.

Our director, Yolanda Reyes, manages daily operations. Yolanda has 11 years of experience in child care and management. In addition, all of our teachers have education in early childhood development and are certified in First Aid and CPR. We have a low student-teacher ratio for our children’s well-being.

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.

Our Testimonials 

We are honored to play this role in the educational and social development of these precious young ones. We love their smiling faces and the way they light up when they learn something new. Besides our innovative curriculum, we welcome input from our community’s parents. When we receive affirmation we are doing a great job, our faces light up! We love what we do because we learn from these children every day. Thank you to the parents who took the time to share their thoughts about our child care centers. Each day is a wonderful adventure. We are proud of the difference we make.

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!
