About The Owners
Discovery Point Tara Plaza is owned and operated by Dr. Roger Clough and Mrs. Robin Clough and is scheduled to open in late 2020. Roger and Robin are originally from upstate New York. They have two teenaged children, McKenzie and Owen, who both are involved in sports and music.
Having been a Superintendent of Schools for 11 years in New York State, Dr. Clough brings educational experience and expertise to Discovery Point. During his tenure, he helped implement several successful new programs for younger-aged children. These include broadening Pre-Kindergarten, introducing Junior Kindergarten, and adding reading teachers and teaching assistants in all elementary schools within his district. He also helped establish a STEM program in the elementary schools and helped create after-school and mentoring programs for young children.
Throughout his career, Dr. Clough’s passion has been to engage and educate the next generation.
“I have always been inspired by the notion that the measure of a civilization is how it treats its youngest members,” says Dr. Clough. “Children should experience a learning environment that will help them grow from an infant to an adult. I feel the curriculum programs created by Discovery Point will help nurture so many children at an early age and provide them with the tools they need to succeed in the future.”
While her husband’s background is in education, Robin Clough worked for the United States Customs Service and Homeland Security for 25 years. Her roles included a wide variety of administrative and management duties essential to the daily operation of Homeland Security Investigations.
“My wife and I are excited to be a part of the Discovery Point family and to help grow the franchise. Even more so, we are excited to help every child that we have in our center and to develop a strong connection with the families we serve.”
