GIVE YOUR CHILD THE LIGHTBRIDGE ADVANTAGE
Studies prove the positive impact that early childhood education has on a child's future success. The advantage graduates have when they enter elementary school is not just academic. It's social, emotional and cognitive, too. The Lightbridge Advantage is a culmination of the many ways, big and small, that we set a higher standard for ourselves and your child.
A HIGHER STANDARD, A FANTASTIC STARTThe natural love of learning and skills we teach-both academic and social-serve them well as they continually progress to the next stage of development. Our children progress naturally because they're constantly stimulated to be creative and curious, to learn and have fun learning. Our goal is to inspire their desire to learn. With that, they can do anything.
A UNIQUE MODEL OF EDUCATIONAL CHILD CARE What sets Lightbridge Academy apart from other schools? We provide an advanced curriculum that is supported by our Circle of Care. It's a philosophy that we have that inspires us to see everyone within our circle-owners, managers, directors, teachers, parents and children-as part of an extended family. This philosophy and our core values drive every decision we make and are the keys to ensuring the educational success and well being of every child.
