Partner with Discovery Point
– An Industry Leader in Child Development –
Discovery Point is a year round child development center that was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Discovery Point offers child care for children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. Discovery Point centers are well equipped, high quality child care centers at an affordable cost to parents. Programs such as Pre-K, Afterschool care and Summer Camps are offered. We emphasize a child positive, safe and friendly environment that will offer each child a well balanced development physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.
Since 1988, we have built multiple world-class child development centers from the ground up. Several new centers are currently being developed, a few existing centers are available for purchase, and plans are underway for expansion across the Southeast, including Texas and North Carolina.
- Unlike some franchisors, we do not grow our franchise group just to increase numbers. We want to be sure that our franchisees are well supported and that each owner has the same passion for quality child development as we do.
- We are with you every step of the way, from construction of your center to operational licensing, and unparalleled support after your center is open for business. We don’t just want you to buy a Discovery Point franchise; we want you to be successful.
- We will help you select the right location and then provide the guidance you need to help you and your business succeed. We will assist you at every stage, from demographics to licensing to our exclusive 4-week training program.
- There are very few people in this world who are real estate, construction, childcare licensing, business operations, and childcare experts. The Discovery Point team has specialists in each of these fields.
Our support staff is available from day one to help you with any situation. We provide our franchisees with an extensive website business center, easy-to-access marketing materials, and resource documents to help you with daily operations and business growth.

Trends support the demand for high-value childcare centers
- Both single-parent and dual-income households are on the rise. Today parents are less likely to be full-time caregivers for their young children, so quality childcare is a primary concern.
- Well-run childcare centers historically maintain a loyal following and gain word-of-mouth referrals. Parents looking for the peace of mind provided by quality childcare appreciate the whole child philosophy and programs of The Discovery Point Experience™.
- The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics reports indicate that the childcare sector will continue to grow with new jobs and higher wages at a steady rate, which currently exceeds the expectations of almost all other industries.
- Solid return on investment.
- Steady cash flow.
- Industry history of stable growth.
- The opportunity to make an impact on future generations.
With growing numbers of dual-income families and rising birth rates, it’s no wonder that the child development industry annually generates billions in revenue. So parents need to know that their children are safe and nurtured – and they’re willing to pay a premium price for quality center-based care.
Franchisees are able to leverage the expertise of an already established, successful business. Unlike independent business entrepreneurs, franchisees can receive assistance with financing, site selection and construction, day-to-day operations, marketing, group purchases and more. Franchisees can avoid many of the risks of starting a new business.
The support provided to our franchisees is especially important in the child development industry, where parents need to know that their children are receiving quality care. Partnering with an industry leader like Discovery Point allows you to benefit from the trusted reputation of an already established brand.
Discovery Point franchisees also build equity for the future because, as part of the package, you own the property, the building, the equipment and the childcare business. Growing, mentoring and innovating for over 20 years, we understand that each child, family and franchise is ultimately linked to our reputation and success. If you are personally inspired and professionally committed to working with children and families, consider growing with us.
Job security, satisfaction, promising income and personal fulfillment are yours in the childcare profession. With new sites under development and existing centers for sale, there has never been a better or more affordable time to join our team.
