BRADENTON, Fla., October 26, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Discovery Point, a leading educational child care franchise, will soon be opening its new center in Bradenton, Florida.
Discovery Point currently has 47 locations across the Southeast, with centers in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Discovery Point Twelve Oaks will be owned and operated by Dr. Roger Clough and Mrs. Robin Clough and is scheduled to open in early December 2020. Enrollment for the center has started, with educational child care offerings from ages 6 weeks up to 12 years.
Having been a Superintendent of Schools for 11 years in New York State, Dr. Clough brings educational experience and expertise to Discovery Point. While her husband's background is in education, Robin Clough worked for the U.S. Customs Service and Homeland Security for 25 years.
Discovery Point's extensive child care industry experience has helped them develop an approach to high-quality child care that has proven to be effective throughout the franchise's 30+ year history. All Discovery Point child care centers are constructed with the safety, well-being, and educational development of students in mind.
Some highlights of Discovery Point's offerings include:
-Discovery Point's proprietary Connections Curriculum® is designed to foster creative thinking and boost language skills as it focuses on early language development and literacy.
-Teachers trained in early childhood education, providing each young Discovery Point learner with the support they need to grasp complex concepts and practice crucial skills. Discovery Point centers feature low student-teacher ratios to allow for plenty of individualized interactions.
-Lesson plans that provide a structure for child-directed learning. It's the job of Discovery Point educators to encourage children's natural curiosity that leads to educational discoveries and provide opportunities to follow those unique interests. Each center features age-separate playground areas and bright, open classroom plans to promote safety, exploration, and both independent and group learning.
-Discovery Point's range of programs provide developmentally appropriate, educational care. The goal is to foster a love of learning and nurture independent thinking that grows with children as they advance through each age group.
Discovery Point centers have a distinctive design that incorporates years of child care experience into their construction and layout. Features include an open floor plan with clear sightlines, easy access between classrooms, and efficient use of multi-purpose spaces. Discovery Point Twelve Oaks will be an updated, modernized version of the franchise's traditional center layout - the first location to retrofit an existing building into a child care center. Completion of construction and the grand opening of the center is scheduled for early December 2020.
