ATLANTA, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With the childcare industry booming, it makes sense that childcare franchises are recognized as a profitable investment. In fact, according to Forbes, childcare businesses tend to have very high gross margins, often times up to 96 percent. As 2017 approaches, childcare franchise leader Discovery Point is primed to grow within the already thriving early childhood education industry. With 47 locations in operation, and five more set to open in 2017, Discovery Point has no signs of letting up on its strategic expansion efforts.
"Throughout our 28-year history, we have set out to create nurturing environments where children can receive the best in care and educational experiences. Through franchise growth, we have been able to achieve our mission and support families across the country," says Cliff Clark, president and CEO, Discovery Point. "In 2017, we project an increasing interest in the expanding childcare franchise market, and we are actively focused on recruiting highly-motivated and forward-thinking entrepreneurs to open a Discovery Point in their local communities."
Discovery Point equips its franchisees with the tools needed to successfully operate; starting with an intensive four week new owner training program. The turn-key franchise also provides its owners with monthly quality assurance support, where consultants evaluate each aspect of licensing, quality of care and education. Designed to maximize experience and profitability, Discovery Point's time-tested model is ideal for entrepreneurs looking for a community-based career opportunity.
Focus on Curriculum
Since its inception, Discovery Point has always put education first, which includes a long-term partnership with Teaching Strategies to implement the nationally recognized Creative Curriculum®. Discovery Point will also be piloting its original curriculum in 2017 focused on child-centered learning. These thematic studies are grounded in educational standards and feature children's literature, sensory experiences, and learning through play.
Discovery Point looks to expand in North Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas and beyond. On a parallel path, the Discovery Point Franchising corporate staff will be expanding as well in order to comfortably accommodate the anticipated growth within the $36 billion industry.
