With National Keep Kids Creative Week (9/22-9/28) right around the corner, it’s only fitting to discuss the commitment that our franchisees have to early childhood education. The combination of nurturing care and a comprehensive curriculum for young children puts Children’s Lighthouse at the head of its class and promotes creative thinking in our classrooms. First introduced in 2014, our proprietary curriculum Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠, is based on five foundations:
- Comprehensive inclusion of cognitive, affective and psychomotor development
- Active engagement
- Research-centered practice
- Embedded (or integrated) content
- Standards-based objectives
This proprietary curriculum also includes the use of “brain-based” teaching and learning strategies and a targeted STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) component. Our franchisees are committed to instilling education and strong character values through this curriculum, helping to develop children both academically and emotionally, and guide the way for their future.
We take pride in our top-notch network of franchisees, who are dedicated to giving back to their communities and being a leader in early childhood education. As a Children’s Lighthouse franchisee, you can inspire others to grow, learn and succeed, all while mentoring a passionate staff and enjoying a more balanced lifestyle.
