Childrens Lighthouse has made a positive difference in children’s lives over the years by delivering educational childcare through a proprietary curriculum. One of the many facets that sets our educational franchise apart is that, while we nurture through processes and technology, we put children first. We believe that every franchise owner, teacher and staff member can make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve. We are especially proud of the many women who tirelessly contribute to this mission and steer our educational childcare franchise to promising new horizons.
Joanne Webster, the school director of the Woodlands, Texas franchise understands this mission closely. Joanne has over 30 years of experience in the early childcare industry and over the years, her focus has always been on putting children first. Her capacity to lead by example was on full display when she brought a few hours of joy to a family whose six-year-old was battling cancer. Joanne arranged for little Jose Gutierrez to spend a day with Kevin Garcia of the Houston Dynamos soccer team so Jose could indulge his love for the game. Eager to expand children’s learning horizons, Joanne has also worked to offer Mandarin lessons at the early learning school.
Angela Wolfe at the Little Elm, Texas franchise says she has always known she would be working in the childcare field. The children at the early learning school amaze her, she says. The wonder of seeing children achieve important milestones, whether it’s learning to count or crawl, never dims. Caring for five children of her own, Angela understands what an enormous responsibility early childhood education is and works to exceed parents’ expectations.
Angela and Joanne are but a few of the many outstanding women who contribute daily to the exceptional success of Childrens Lighthouse early learning schools. Our professional women form the backbone of our franchise, and we celebrate their achievements during Women’s History Month — and all year long.
