    Since its founding in 1997, Lightbridge Academy has provided a top-notch early childhood education franchise opportunity for business owners who want to make a difference.

    Lightbridge Academy, the Iselin, New Jersey-based franchise, provides early education and child care for children ages six weeks through kindergarten as well as special programming for children up to 10 years old and a new school-age remote-learning program. We are known as The Solution for Working Parents® and are committed to our Circle of Care philosophy, which places equal importance on the needs of children, their families, teachers, center owners and the community.

    We franchised in 2011 to expand our distinctive concept throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and our system is currently is one of the fastest-growing early education child care center franchise opportunities in the U.S. Franchisees are running their own center as an independent business, but they’re never on their own. Our team treats each owner as an integral part of a network that truly cares, supports and encourages one another, and helps every franchisee succeed every step of the way.

    Our Culture

    The work that we do is immensely gratifying and the relationships that franchisees build with the families that they support and nurture creates a rewarding family-oriented culture. Lightbridge Academy partners with franchisees who embody our core values and are committed to following the Lightbridge System. It is through this mutual appreciation of integrity, leadership and passion to provide the highest quality of care and early childhood education services and customer experience possible. With this commitment come the richest rewards imaginable – the happiness and well-being of children and their families.
