    Previous child development experience is welcomed, but not a requirement. Discovery Point Franchisees come from diverse backgrounds.

  • Will the Changes to the SBA Loan Process Help New Discovery Point Franchisees?

    The Small Business Association (SBA) has announced that they are making changes to their loan process to provide significantly more capital at a more affordable cost to small businesses. Since most of our franchisees utilize some form of SBA loans, these changes will make Discovery Point Child Development Centers more affordable than ever!
  • How Do I Get an SBA Loan for Discovery Point?

    Discovery Point appears on the SBA Registry. To gain approval, Discovery Point submitted detailed operational and financial information, including the current FDD, to the SBA for review and approval as a Nationally Approved SBA Franchise Concept. New Franchisees benefit from an expedited loan process when they apply for SBA financing. Local and national banks gain confidence in making the SBA-backed loan when the franchised concept is listed on the Registry.
