Who Is Children’s Lighthouse and What Is the History of Our Early Childhood Education Franchise?

Children are our most precious members of society. In them, many of us see our hopes and dreams for the future. The Children’s Lighthouse brand has always believed in the potential of each child, no matter their age, and it’s why our early childhood education franchise has always focused on engaging the whole child to prepare each for a confident and successful adulthood.

But how did Children’s Lighthouse get its start? What motivates us every day to do what we do and, where do we fit into our robust industry? These are important questions that we’ll answer briefly here.

Beyond Babysitting

When brothers Mike and Pat Brown opened the first Children’s Lighthouse school in 1997, they recognized the need for quality childcare that went beyond playtime and simple baby-sitting. They were parents themselves and understood firsthand the importance of quality childcare that provides real opportunities for learning and enrichment, in addition to time for socializing and playing. This philosophy that was the genesis of the Children’s Lighthouse brand 25 years ago continues to inform everything we do. Today, we are a family-owned brand that respects the unique needs of each child, with a proprietary curriculum that encourages young minds to explore and create. As a result, Children’s Lighthouse continues to be a top-tier franchise in early childhood education, one that serves more and more families every day.

The Need for High-Quality Childcare Has Never Been Greater

As more families become dual income, more of them are looking for high-quality childcare that goes well beyond keeping their child safe and occupied; they want to provide their children with a chance to learn and grow in a way that celebrates their unique qualities. For many of these families, Children’s Lighthouse is the answer.

The fact is, ours is a recession-resistant opportunity, one that provides an increasingly essential service. Consider these statistics:

  • 35m: the number of U.S. working mothers in 2019
  • 5m: the number of children under 6 who require childcare
  • $54.3bn: the value of the childcare industry in 2019
  • 9%: the projected industry growth rate from 2020 to 2027

These numbers reflect a growing need for high-quality childcare as more parents enter the workforce. Partnering with Children’s Lighthouse to open your early education franchise will allow you to meet the needs
