October 19, 2015 // Franchising.com // DULUTH, Ga. – Rochelle Forbes, with more than a decade of experience in the early childhood industry, has joined Discovery Point Child Development Centers® as a Quality Assurance Consultant.
Forbes’ responsibilities include conducting monthly visits to centers to maintain quality control and assist franchisees in daily operations.
During her 13-year career, Forbes has held numerous teaching positions for ages ranging from infants to school aged, as has also served as a Director of Curriculum and an Executive Director.
“We are very excited to be able to have someone with Rochelle’s experience and expertise join our team” said Cliff Clark, President and CEO of Discovery Point Child Development Centers. “She will play an important role in making sure that all our current centers as well as our new ones provide the same exceptional education our parents have come to expect.”
Clark founded Discovery Point Child Development Centers in an Atlanta suburb in 1988 with his late wife, Diane, a former public school teacher. What began as Diane’s dream to make a difference in children’s lives early on, coupled with Cliff’s experience in real estate and building businesses, soon proved to be a popular alternative to existing childcare opportunities with parents and potential franchisees. Discovery Point now has almost 50 franchises in four states and 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.
Discovery Point Child Development Centers use the nationally recognized early childhood education program Creative Curriculum System® for Preschool. That distinctive approach – coupled with 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.
Discovery Point Child Development Centers® provides safe, educational and nurturing environments for growing children. Discovery Point embraces a three A’s approach – Attention, Affection and Approval – and partners with Teaching Strategies in using the nationally recognized early childhood education program, Creative Curriculum System® for Preschool. Since opening its first location in an Atlanta suburb in 1988, Discovery Point has been a leader in childhood enrichment and care, expanding beyond its Georgia roots into Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee with plans under way to reach new markets nationwide. Discovery Point Child Development Centers® has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine in its “Franchise 500” and ranked #22 on its “Red-Hot Franchise” list for 2013.
