The Heart & Soul of Our Success.

While everyone in the Lightbridge Academy Circle of Care contributes to our mission, the teachers and caregivers are at the forefront of our success. They are role models, giving 110 percent, and thrive in an environment with high standards. All employees are valued, and we strive to give them our best.

It's a Calling.

It’s clear that teachers who excel in early childhood education view their career not as a job but as life’s calling. It’s in their DNA. Lightbridge Academy employees light up when students master new skills, inspire all those around them, find just the right words that bring comfort to a parent, build confidence in every child and always take their profession to heart. With years of experience, we know what it takes to retain exceptional staff. 

We are Lifelong Learners.

Our teachers set a wonderful example for students by being lifelong learners themselves. We support and cultivate this ambition with extensive training programs. Lightbridge Academy offers well above state-mandated training, with a minimum of 15 hours of professional training per year. Trainings take place on-site with webinars and director-led workshops as well as off-site through professional development conferences. 

The Latest Teaching Tools.

In addition to all necessary traditional learning tools like crayons, blocks, and books, our classrooms are technology-friendly learning environments with the latest educational tools including iPads, interactive whiteboards, children's tech tables and more!  Be inspired and contribute your ideas to the Lightbridge Academy Teacher Resource Center and Pinterest page filled with teacher-created lesson plans, classroom management tips, bulletin board designs and other valuable resources.

Qualifications Matter.

Lightbridge Academy sets the bar high for the candidates who wish to join our Circle of Care. Every staff position holds special qualifications. In addition to possessing a Child Development Associate credential, we prefer that all lead teachers hold a minimum of an Associate degree in Child Development or Bachelor of Arts in Education with a focus in Early Childhood Education. 

Are You a Fit?

Lightbridge Academy employees embody our core values and Circle of Care philosophy. They are naturally happy, engaged, continually growing and care deeply about the lives of children and families. On the front lines of our success and not forgotten, many employees choose to remain with us for the long term. This means the world to the children and parents who have developed strong relationships with them and delight in seeing their familiar face every day. Lightbridge Academy matches every desire for growth with opportunity for career advancement in the classroom, in center administration and in other areas of the franchise organization.
