Children’s Lighthouse Looks to Grow in Mansfield, Texas

For more than two decades, Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers has been at the forefront of providing values-based childcare across the U.S.

Offering the most innovative curriculums and education programs including its signature and proprietary Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S. ℠ curriculum, Children’s Lighthouse is the leading educational child care franchise. Devoted to providing parents with a clean, safe and positive environment for their kids’ academic and social development, brand awareness has been increasing as demand for higher quality education centers increases as well.

With more than 40 open locations and dozens of locations in development, Children’s Lighthouse is in the midst of an extensive franchise growth strategy to ingrain the company in attractive communities across the country. As part of this strategic plan, Children’s Lighthouse is seeking to grow its presence in neighborhoods in the Mansfield, Texas area with qualified franchise investors.

It’s an exciting time to become a franchise business owner in Mansfield’s childcare sector, as the city is often pinpointed as ripe for economic development. With double-income and single parent families on the rise, waiting lists are at an all-time high in daycare centers throughout the south Dallas/Fort Worth area. Considering the city’s population has more than doubled in the past 15 years, there is an unequivocal need for educational childcare in Mansfield that Children’s Lighthouse is uniquely designed to meet.

Children’s Lighthouse Franchisee Discusses Entrepreneurial Journey

The Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers℠ franchise model has many benefits, including the opportunity to work with some of the most experienced entrepreneurs and franchise professionals in the business.

Recently, a Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers℠ franchisee was profiled in the Round Rock Leader to talk about her journey to entrepreneurship. Round Rock local Richa Lawania decided to open a Children’s Lighthouse after her search for quality educational child care in her area resulted in frustration and disappointment. She’s experienced great satisfaction in knowing that she’s providing child care services that are a step above the competition, both in quality of care and education.

“They have their own curriculum called “Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠” that is a character-values based curriculum,” Lawania said in the article. “We will focus on one character value every month. We want students to learn more than just the ABCs, English, math and science, but to be a good human being as well.”

This is just one example of the influence that Children’s Lighthouse franchise owners can have on the entrepreneurial and educational landscape of their communities.
