Childrens Lighthouse Franchise Company is excited to announce that our Director of Education and Training, Dr. Kristi Martin-Smith, has been appointed an Exchange Leader by Exchange Leadership Initiative (ELI) – a top early childhood care and education authority.
The Exchange Leader designation serves as a testament to Martin-Smith’s dedication to providing training and operational support to ensure our franchisees are equipped to provide top educational programs for all children enrolled at Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning Schools™ across the country.
“There are so many incredible individuals who are reshaping the future of early childhood education in such profound ways, and to be recognized as a leader among them is a monumental moment for me, both personally and professionally,” said Martin-Smith.
The honor was bestowed upon Martin-Smith for the contributions she’s made to early childhood education throughout her career. Combining 30 years of global educational leadership and experience in teaching, training and working with teachers, administrators, and school owners from many economic as well as cultural backgrounds, her merit as an Exchange Leader will allow her to make an even larger impact on children, families and communities across the country.
The announcement comes at a time when Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning Schools™ are reopening their doors and Childrens Lighthouse Franchise Company is continuing to focus on growth. In fact, we recently opened a new franchised location in Seabrook, Texas, and look forward to opening the 18th Childrens Lighthouse location in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this fall.
As the demand for educational child care increases, Childrens Ligthouse provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to open in attractive metropolitan areas. Contact us today to learn more about how you can become a Childrens Lighthouse franchise partner.
