Local Educator to Bring Values-Based Educational Childcare Center to the Overland Park Community
OVERLAND PARK, Ks. – Paving a path to academic success for young students, Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers today announced the opening of a second location in the Greater Kansas City area. Set to open on Monday, June 6th, the new learning center offers high-quality educational childcare that helps stimulate intellectual development in a safe, warm and welcoming environment designed to bring out the best in children.
The center is located at 12521 Antioch Rd. in the Overland Park community. Aspen Robb, the owner of the neighboring Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center in Olathe, will own and operate the new childcare center.
“What children learn at a young age, stays with them forever, which is why we have such a special opportunity to build tomorrow’s leaders today,” said Robb. “We are proud to be able to offer parents in our community the opportunity to shape their child’s future through Children’s Lighthouse.”
Local families have clearly taken to the warm and engaging environment Children’s Lighthouse offers. Robb’s center is the third to open in the Midwest. There are an additional 40 centers in operation and 20 franchise locations in the development pipeline throughout the United States.
“Our growth is a direct reflection of the dedication we have to providing children with the highest quality education childcare,” said Stephen Dixon, chief development officer for Fort Worth-based Children’s Lighthouse Franchise Company. “Our franchisees want to build a business they can feel good about and, through our centers, they can be confident they are making a positive impact on their community.”
Spanning 10,500 square feet and in a park-like setting on nearly 1.5 acres of land, the new center has 10 individual classrooms and an on-site kitchen to provide students with fresh, healthy meals daily. The center is technology-advanced, featuring iPads and electronic whiteboards, and a classroom management software that will keep parents up to speed with their child’s progress.
The school also features security code controlled door locking, and computerized check-in and classroom surveillance, ensuring parents have peace of mind when dropping their child off. And, with Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers’ Internet monitoring connection, parents can even watch their children from the comfort of their own home or while at work.
Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers’ mission is to promote positive development of young children in all areas of growth including social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development. The centers use and follow an award winning and respected curriculum, which is built on a foundation of academic excellence and character values training.
