Angela Backers Joins Discovery Point Child Development Centers® As Quality Assurance Consultant and Education Trainer

November 12, 2015 // // DULUTH, Ga. – Angela Backers, a 15-year veteran of the early childhood industry, has joined Discovery Point Child Development Centers® as a Quality Assurance Consultant and Education Trainer.

Backers’ responsibilities include conducting visits to centers in Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina to ensure quality control across the franchise system by assisting franchisees in daily operations. In addition, she will collaborate with the Manager of Education and Training as an Educational Trainer offering support to Discovery Point teachers and staff.

During her career, Backers has worked as a teacher, a director and a trainer. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and Psychology from Spelman College and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Organizational Development from Grand Canyon University. She is currently working on her Doctor of Education from Grand Canyon University, with an expected graduation date of Spring 2016.

“Angela has a deep understanding of the childcare industry and will play a critical role in helping us maintain our high standards for quality and consistency throughout the system, which is important when growing a franchise,” said Cliff Clark, President and CEO of Discovery Point Child Development Centers.

Clark founded Discovery Point Child Development Centers in an Atlanta suburb in 1988 with his late wife, Diane, a former public school teacher. Today there are almost 50 franchises in four states and Point Child Development Centers has been ranked by Entrepreneur magazine in its Franchise 500 and at #22 among its “Top 100 Red Hot Franchises” and its “Top 500 New U.S. Franchises” for 2013.

The company’s unique, turnkey franchise model sets Discovery Point Child Development Centers® apart in the childcare industry. Once a franchise agreement is signed, the Discovery Point real estate team carefully selects optimum sites for its franchises, purchases the property, and builds the childcare center from the ground up, handling all aspects of construction. All equipment is provided and installed by the franchise company, literally creating a turn-key opportunity for the franchisee to open the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility.
