July 05, 2017 // Franchising.com // FORT WORTH, Texas - Childrens Lighthouse Learning CenterSM, widely recognized as the leading values-based, early-education childcare provider in the United States, is celebrating great growth during the first six months of the year.
“We hit the ground running this year, and our hard work and dedication is evident in our growth,” said Steve Dixon, chief development officer for Childrens Lighthouse. “We are opening centers in new markets and are signing franchise agreements with highly qualified individuals and teams. We have no plans for slowing down. Our goal is to grow to fill the demand for educational childcare in communities throughout the country.”
So far in 2017, Childrens Lighthouse has signed six agreements with both new and existing franchisees for attractive markets across the South and East Coast. Five centers have opened to-date in the first half of the year, including in Round Rock, Montgomery and Woodlands, Texas; Gardner, Kansas; and Raleigh, North Carolina. Five additional locations are set to open throughout the second half of 2017, joining the 44 existing centers in communities across the country.
In addition to the franchise growth the brand is experiencing in 2017, Childrens Lighthouse has also taken many steps to continue demonstrating its commitment to furthering the knowledge of its students. Earlier this year, the brand’s curriculum and leadership systems received accreditation from AdvancED®, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.
These milestones for the brand have not gone unnoticed. This year, Childrens Lighthouse Learning CenterSM was certified as a World-Class Franchise® by the Franchise Research Institute®, with franchisees giving 100 percent positive ratings to the overall opportunity provided by the system and a 97 percent positive rating to the overall quality of the franchisor. The brand was also ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
The combination of a comprehensive curriculum for young children and nurturing care puts Children’s Lighthouse at the head of its class. Children’s Lighthouse has embedded Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.SM, a highly respected curriculum, into its programming. Along with the educational component, their curriculum incorporates physical motor skills and technology-enhanced learning to keep kids engaged at all times. Plus, Childrens Lighthouse Learning CenterSM give parents peace of mind with online video links to rooms, computerized building entry, security monitoring and transportation to and from area elementary schools.
“There is not another educational childcare concept that exceeds expectations like we do,” added Dixon. “The demand for educational childcare continues to grow and families in the communities we serve identify us as the best option for their children. We are looking forward to introducing more families in new markets to our world-class childcare.”
