About us

Serving Families Since 2005!!


About the Owners

Discovery Point Buford is owned and operated by Linda and John Rack.

After living most of our lives in sunny Florida, we were both ready to move to Georgia to be closer to our family.  With our children and grandchildren already in the Buford area we relocated to be closer to them.  Once we moved and were settled in, we started looking for a business opportunity in the area.  After a thorough search of all the available options we selected Discovery Point.  Its outstanding reputation and the high service of excellence it provides stood out to us.  We wanted to be a part of this thriving community by providing an important service to both parents and their children.

Our vision became a reality when we opened our doors in December 2005.  Our center has grown by leaps and bounds as it continues to be an important part in the care of many of the children in the Buford area.  Our services include caring for the needs of children as young as 6 weeks old, supporting the development of toddlers and preschoolers and offering 3 Georgia State funded Pre-K classes.  We also provide quality before/after school programs for school age children along with safe and reliable transportation both to and from area schools which include, Ivy Creek Elementary, Patrick Elementary, Harmony Elementary and Jones Middle School.

Our purpose has always been to provide the very best child care in a safe and nurturing environment and cared for by the best teachers.  We accomplish this goal by hiring the best teachers who are passionate and dedicated about their profession.   All of our teachers meet and/or exceed the State requirements for child care providers.  Many of our teachers hold degrees in child development and all are trained in CPR and First Aid and Fire Safety.  We have a record of staff retention and many of our staff members have been with us for over 13 years.

We offer quality at an affordable price.  We are very mindful of child care expenses and believe in the best child care without imposing a huge financial strain on you.  Our 2 Star Quality Rating sets us apart from other day care centers as we continue to go above what state licensing requires to make sure your child has the best experience with us every day.

We look forward to meeting you and invite you to tour our center.  We appreciate the opportunity to be your child’s care center of choice.


We offer daycare for kids in the following age groups:

  • Infants
  • Toddlers
  • Preschool Age
  • GA Pre-K
  • School Agers
  • Summer Camps


What our happy parents say

Lucy Cook

We love Discovery Point Buford! The staff is always so personable and really care for the kids. My daughter is in the Pre-K program there and 1 year old son is in the toddler room. I’m always comfortable that my children are in great hands and will continue to use them as long as we can

This is my daughter’s first year here for pre k and lets just say I am so happy I switched her school. Ms. Amanda and Ms. Francis are amazing. My daughter now looks forward to going to school! They whole staff is amazing.

Amanda Mills

When my son entered Kindergarten in 2011, we enrolled him at Discovery Point for before and after school care. We have loved this place ever since! My daughter started here when she was an infant – she’s now 4 and in the Georgia Pre-K program at Discovery Point. She has always enjoyed coming here! When she has an “off” day, her teachers will make sure she gets settled right in while they shoo me off to work, telling me they will take care of her. And I know they will since they’ve taken such good care of my kids from the very beginning.
The office staff is also amazing! Everyone is so easy to talk to and they make sure all is running smoothly. I cannot recommend Discovery Point enough!

I went to preschool here when I was younger and I started my first year of college here!! I loved it soo much! My favorite teacher is mrs Rita !!!❤️

Julie Magnus

Our daughter started here at 8 weeks old and attended through her 3rd birthday, when we moved. DP was amazing. We never encountered a teacher we didn’t fall in love with, who didn’t care for our daughter as if she were their own. When we enrolled her in another daycare, she was bored because she had learned SO much from everyone at DP! They were my source of advice and comfort as a new mom too, I don’t know what I would have done without them!!

My children started at Discovery Point August 2016; my daughter absolutely loved the pre-k program. Her teachers were fabulous. My 2 1/2 year old had a rough time transitioning, but everyone at the center went above and beyond to love on him and help him adjust. As he has moved up, we have loved all his teachers – it’s been a wonderful experience for us!
