About Lightbridge Academy

Lightbridge Academy has met the demand by filling a unique gap in the market, focusing on providing a quality education and care for children while also meeting the needs of working parents. In 2015 and 2016, Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Lightbridge Academy as a ‘Top New Franchise’ and in 2013 as one of the “Leading Edge Franchisors That Are Innovating in Big Ways”.

The stresses on families have never been greater. Parents who have previously stayed at home have found it necessary to return to the workplace and many are putting in longer hours. Others have been forced to relocate to find work, or increase their commuting time.This growing trend was only one of the reasons that Entrepreneur Magazine ranked childcare in the "Top Ten Industries to Watch" for both 2011 and 2012!

You Have What It Takes

There is nothing more important in a society than the care and education of its children. And there is nothing more gratifying than the relationships that you build with families as your support and nurture them through the years. However, you may find that being an educator is not your calling and that you enjoy managing the back end of the business. You need to be where you can contribute the most, however, every franchisee must possess:

  • Integrity
  • A commitment to follow the Lightbridge Academy system
  • Recurring revenue
  • A belief in our core values

With this commitment come the richest rewards imaginable — the happiness and well-being of children and their families.

You need a sense of purpose.
