The Emory WorkLife Resource Center has worked diligently to expand the child care network to help serve
all Emory families with attention paid to where employees work and live, household income, and type
programming offered. The new additions to the Emory Child Care Network include:
Discovery Point Child Development Centers
Discovery Point has been providing quality child care for over twenty years. The company has over 40
locations scattered throughout metropolitan Atlanta and over half of them have agreed to be a part of the
Emory Child Care Network. With exception to a few locations which are corporately owned, the centers are
each individually owned with owners onsite each day. Discovery Point offers a Creative Curriculum covering
infants through Pre-Kindergarten (including the Georgia Lottery Funded Pre-K), as well as before and after-
school programs and summer camp. They are somewhat unique in that many of their centers offer part-time
and drop-in care, a level of care that is relatively hard to find in Atlanta. Participating Discovery Point
locations offer Emory faculty, staff, and students a 10% discount off regular tuition for one child for either
full-time care, summer camps or before and after-school care.
For more information on Discovery Point or to find out if a location near you is in the Emory Child Care Network go to www.discoverypoint.com or contact Audrey Adelson at (404) 727-1261.
Peachtree Academy Early Learning Center (Conyers)
Peachtree Academy Early Learning Center has been providing award winning early childhood education in
the East Metro area for over 10 years in Conyers. The school’s owner manages onsite daily and strives to
offer a strong social and academic program to young children and ongoing professional development of its
teachers. Peachtree Academy is proud of the low child to student ratios and low turnover of staff. Many of
the teachers have been at the academy since its opening. The school is Christian based, but welcomes
families of all denominations. It utilizes a Creative Curriculum with music and language included, as well as a
few different enrichment programs. Peachtree Academy often has a waiting list and agreed to offer priority
admission to faculty, staff, and students of Emory. The early learning center offers programming for infants
through Pre-Kindergarten (including Georgia Funded Pre-K), before and after-school programs, and summer
camp. Peachtree Academy has been awarded NAEYC, SACS, and Center Of Distinction over the years. Due
to parent demand, the program expanded into Kindergarten through High School and is accredited by the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as well as the Georgia Accreditation Commission.
Emory employees currently using a provider in the Emory Child Care Network should approach their center
director to be sure that they receive any network offerings. If further assistance is needed or you have any
questions about the network, contact Audrey Adelson at (404) 727-1261. The Emory WorkLife Resource
Center does not endorse any particular program in its child care network, however the center does try to
help families evaluate quality child care by offering tips to help them understand it and find it.
