Local Sibling Team to Open Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center in Austin

Group Signs Agreement to Open Premier Educational Childcare Center

AUSTIN – Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers®, widely recognized as the leading values-based, early-education childcare provider in the United States, announced today an agreement has been signed with siblings Alla Attia, Ahmed Attia, Noor Attia and Tesneem Attia to open a new Children’s Lighthouse location for Austin’s Round Rock and Brushy Creek communities.

Opening a Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center was a natural fit for Noor, Ahmed, Alla and Tesneem, who all have children of their own. The siblings wanted a way to give back to their community and provide parents the same level of quality educational childcare that they were seeking for their own children.

“As parents trying to find daycare for our own children, we saw the need for educational childcare in our area,” said Noor. “It’s such an important part of a child’s development. That’s why we are so excited to bring the Children’s Lighthouse educational curriculum to families here in the Round Rock and Brushy Creek communities.”

The siblings are transitioning into entrepreneurship after careers in various sectors, including marketing, teaching, engineering and information systems technology.

The new center will offer classroom and group activity settings, including ample age-appropriate play areas both inside and outside the facility, and will provide on-site meal services. Typical Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers include a 10,500-square-foot classroom facility and serve families with children from six weeks old to age 12. In addition to childcare during traditional school hours, the new Austin center will also provide after-school programs and summer camps.

Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers are safe and secure environments that give parents peace of mind, including online video links to rooms, computerized building entry, security monitoring and transportation to and from area elementary schools. With experienced educational childcare professionals guiding the company’s operations, Children’s Lighthouse has embedded award-winning curriculums into its programming, designed to teach young children reading, math and science as well as character values. The curriculum also incorporates elements of fun and entertainment to keep kids engaged at all times.

Along with the forthcoming Austin center, 25 new Children’s Lighthouse Learning Centers are in development or under construction, preparing to join the more than 30 that are already operating.

“We are proud to enter new communities and expand in those that already have a Children’s Lighthouse center, with the help of talented individuals such as Noor, Tesneem, Ahmed and Alla who share our passion for education and values,” said Stephen Dixon, chief development officer for the company. “We are lucky to have this opportunity to carry on the Children’s Lighthouse tradition in Texas with a new school in Austin and doing so with those as gifted as this family. With their qualifications, Children’s Lighthouse has a bright future in the region.”

Launched 18 years ago, Children’s Lighthouse provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to open in attractive metropolitan areas. Ownership in a Children’s Lighthouse franchise includes a full suite of support services, including site selection, financing guidance, construction administration and grand opening marketing best practices. Children’s Lighthouse’s initial and ongoing training and support is led by an experienced team of childcare veterans, providing the franchise owner invaluable insight and leadership for the entire life of the franchise.
