You Have What It Takes
There is nothing more important in a society than the care and education of its children. And there is nothing more gratifying than the relationships that you build with families as your support and nurture them through the years. However, you may find that being an educator is not your calling and that you enjoy managing the back end of the business. You need to be where you can contribute the most, and you have the option. What every franchisee must possess is:
With this commitment come the richest rewards imaginable — the happiness and well-being of children and their families.
We consider it an honor to be connected to the children, families and educators who make up our Circle of Care. And the people who become Lightbridge Academy franchisees do too. As a Lightbridge Academy franchise owner, you become part of a family that truly cares, supports and encourages one another. It is a franchise opportunity unlike any other.
To be considered as a Lightbridge Academy franchise owner, you are required to have at least $200,000 in liquid assets and a net worth of $750,000. The typical initial investment ranges between $464,400 - $699,774.
Join the Lightbridge Academy Circle of Care and receive unsurpassed commitment and dedication to your success! For more information, visit www.LightbridgeAcademy.com or call 732-457-9090.

We also provide on-site training at your facility prior to opening. This allows us the chance to help train your staff on what they should expect, how to handle daily operations, and what to do in various situations that may arise. The training doesn’t stop there, however. We are available to help train new staff, offer insights into issues you may not feel up to speed on, and to help you answer any questions that may come up after the school opens.
