The principles of character are molded into Childrens Lighthouse Franchise Company’s core values: “We believe in the importance of teaching character values, and more importantly, in modeling their use in our interactions with children, their families, and one another.” As a company, we actively pursue opportunities to donate time and resources to the communities we serve in order to live those values every day.
Through our national partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we have an established outlet that allows all of our franchise owners to participate in and host philanthropic events. Alexis Legg, the owner of soon-to-open Childrens Lighthouse in Oak Forest, Texas, recently put together a team for a virtual St. Jude walk-a-thon and raised $1,500 for the organization. To cap off a month of fundraising, Deanna Gustafson and the team at Childrens Lighthouse Winter Garden, Florida held a trike-a-thon in February to support St. Jude’s mission. These are just a few examples of the ways in which our owners choose to donate their resources and time.
In addition to their work with St. Jude, it’s been heartening to see so many of our franchise partners come to the support of their community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Several schools, including Texas locations in Lake Houston, Arlington and Wylie, hosted blood drives to shore up critical supplies for regional hospitals. Owner Navi Sharma of the Arlington location said she was delighted to do what she could to help during the pandemic. Looking to support frontline workers in times of need, many Childrens Lighthouse schools also offered discounted fees to families of essential workers.
Childrens Lighthouse Franchise Company is dedicated to excellence in all aspects of early childhood education. By giving back to their communities in whichever way they can, our franchisees also model good character to the very children they nurture.
