Building A Foundation for a Brighter Future: Children’s Lighthouse Opens in Oak Point

Local Entrepreneurs Bring Values-Based Early Learning School to Oak Point Community

September 22, 2017 // // OAK POINT, Texas - Paving a path to academic success for young students, Childrens Lighthouse Learning CentersSM recently opened its newest location in Oak Point. The learning center officially opened its doors Tuesday, September 5 and offers high-quality early childhood education and child care that helps stimulate intellectual development in a safe, warm and welcoming environment designed to bring out the best in children.

The center, located at 301 Shahan Prairie, is owned and operated by Julie Carter and Michael Carter, who oversee the management of the facility, along with a center director and full staff of teachers and administrators. The business partners are passionate about bringing high quality child care to the Oak Point community.

“Children’s Lighthouse of Oak Point will enrich the community by providing the high quality educational child care that is so important to parents,” Julie said. “What children learn at a young age, stays with them forever. We are proud to be able to offer parents in our community the opportunity to shape their child’s future through Children’s Lighthouse.”

“Having grown up in the area, I’m extremely proud to be able to provide the community a quality child care experience that’s unparalleled in the market,” added Michael.

Local families have clearly taken to the warm and engaging environment Children’s Lighthouse offers. The Oak Point center is the first to open in the area and there are an additional 45 centers in operation throughout the United States.

“Our growth is a direct reflection of the dedication we have to providing children with the highest quality educational child care,” said Stephen Dixon, chief development officer for Fort Worth-based Children’s Lighthouse Franchise Company. “Our franchisees want to build a business they can feel good about and, through our early learning schools, they can be confident they are making a positive impact on their community.”

Spanning 10,500 square feet, with sizable indoor and outdoor play areas, the new facility has 10 individual classrooms and an on-site kitchen to provide students with freshly prepared, healthy meals every day. The center is technology-advanced, featuring electronic tablets and electronic whiteboards, and classroom management software that will keep parents up to speed with their child's progress.

The school also features security code controlled door locking and computerized check-in and classroom surveillance, ensuring parents have peace of mind when dropping their child off. And, with Children’s Lighthouse’s internet monitoring connection, parents can even watch their children from the comfort of their own home or office.

The mission of Children’s Lighthouse is to promote positive development of young children in all areas of growth including social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development. The centers use and follow its proprietary and nationally accredited curriculum, Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.SM which is built on a foundation of academic excellence and character values training.
