It was Benjamin Franklin who said, “Tell me, and I forget. Teach me, and I remember. Involve me, and I learn.” At Children’s Lighthouse, we take that to heart. Ours is a childcare business opportunity with a difference, one that offers children the chance to learn, play, and explore at their own pace and as a celebration of their unique skills. We’re committed to providing children with safe and loving environments away from home that encourage their intellectual and emotional growth. Here, we’ll look at why your Children’s Lighthouse franchise will be so much more than just a childcare business.
Curriculum that Encourages Independent Learners
Taking care of children, whether at home or in a school setting, is an important and meaningful responsibility. Children’s Lighthouse founders Mike and Pat Brown knew this when they opened their very first school over 25 years ago. They knew that if they had the privilege of offering child care to their community, they would have to do more than simply provide supervision and playtime; they would have to help set up each child for adulthood through guidance, care, and a proprietary curriculum that sets the standard for early education and encourages a lifelong love of learning.
Our Lighthouse Pathways™ approach to learning does just that, featuring age-appropriate curriculums tailored to factor in a child’s stage of development, from age six weeks to 12 years. As our franchisee, you’ll be able to meet the distinct educational needs of children in your community in three ways, representing three robust revenue streams:
- Infant & Toddler: 6 weeks to 24 months
- Preschool: 2 to 5 years
- School Age: Kindergarten through 12
It is truly early education at its very best. But why place such an emphasis on early learning? Isn’t simple caretaking and playtime enough for a childcare center to provide? The short answer is no.
The Advantages of Early Learning
The developing minds and growing bodies of our nation’s children represent the future, and today, Children’s Lighthouse continues to make children a priority by offering early childhood education opportunities to every community we serve. The lifelong benefits are numerous, with a recent study even showing those advantages continuing into the next generation! Children who were part of an early learning environment:
- Were more likely to have graduated from high school
- Were more likely to hold a job and have higher earnings
- Committed fewer crimes
- Owned their own home and car
The benefits of early childhood learning are indisputable, and your Children’s Lighthouse franchise will be leading the way. With over 25 years of industry experience to share, we’re excited to welcome new franchisees into the brand family, not only because they help make the Children’s Lighthouse name stronger but because they represent the chance for more children to enjoy the lifelong advantages of early learning.
