Our founders, brothers Mike and Pat Brown, opened the first Children’s Lighthouse School in 1997 because they knew, as parents and uncles of several young children, that the need for quality childcare was a growing one. More than twenty-five years later, our passion to serve children and families still motivates us to strive for excellence in every aspect of our organization. As a result, Children’s Lighthouse continues to be a top-tier early learning and childcare provider.
The way we see it, we’re in this together. Our proprietary technology platform provides transparency across the franchise system, allowing for best practice sharing and financial targeting!
