Am I Qualified To Start An Early Childhood Education Business?
Lightbridge Academy works with franchisees from many backgrounds. Some are looking for an opportunity to make a difference and invest in a booming industry. Others choose Lightbridge because they want to work in a company led by core values with a high-quality early childhood education program. And some, want to open a business that goes above and beyond to help families in their community.
We’re a perfect choice for husband-and-wife teams wanting to start their own family business. After all, that’s how Lightbridge got started back in 1997. Guy and Julia Falzarano launched the first Lightbridge Academy, a child care business with family values and have been growing their trusted education franchise for the past 25+ years. Today, Gigi Schweikert leads the company as CEO, freely sharing her 30+ years of knowledge and early childhood and franchising experience while the core values the Falzarano’s set in place.
Even if you haven’t run a child care business before, we’re ready to show you our proven business model and system and provide you the valuable resources and market differentiation you need to succeed in the child care industry.
Build A Business That Leverages Your Skills
Running a child care business is a perfect opportunity for partners because, within our system, there are different roles to leverage your talents. If you’re more business-minded, you may be a great fit for managing operations behind the scenes: keeping finances in order, staying on top of maintenance and so forth. If you love working with children and their families, you’ll find there’s lots of opportunity for that as well. As The Solution for Working Parents® we not only offer care and education for children but our program seeks to meet the needs of busy parents with young families. Through the Lightbridge Foundation, all Lightbridge Academy locations give back to the communities they serve through scholarships, volunteerism and providing grants to those in crisis.
One of the best reasons to choose Lightbridge Academy is that we have time-tested systems in place, greatly simplifying the process of running (and growing!) your early childhood education business. You’ll enjoy comprehensive hands-on, remote and classroom training and support that continues for the duration of your franchise agreement, from preparing for your grand opening and throughout the life of your business. A few examples include:
- A franchise development team dedicated to helping you coordinate with architects, engineers, and contractors
- Personal mentoring
- 170+ hours of training
- Expert advertising and marketing support
The result is that franchisees have the freedom to build lucrative careers that they truly love!
