When Ketul and Krupa Parikh decided to enter into the child care industry, they didn’t do it on a whim. They put in their due diligence—between researching specific educational programs and looking at customer and parent satisfaction, they wanted to know they were working with the best brand in the business before signing on the dotted line. That’s why they decided to invest with Lightbridge Academy.
“Right off the bat, we were incredibly impressed with everything that Lightbridge Academy had to offer. They really stood out to us because they have everything the best child care companies are known for, but then they take it to the next level,” said Ketul. “There isn’t another brand that can match their innovation and credibility in the industry.”
In addition to a dedicated business coach, Lightbridge Academy franchise owners have direct access to the senior level executives in the company and are encouraged to offer feedback and ask for support when they need an extra boost. From signing a franchise agreement to supporting business owners as they establish themselves in their local communities, the franchise company has proven equally committed to the franchisees’ success.
“We’ve been impressed with Lightbridge Academy’s franchise company team since our very first conversation. Because the franchise concept is still young, we have the ability to not just grow as individual franchise owners, but help the brand move forward as a whole,” Ketul said. “It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a Lightbridge Academy franchisee, and we’re looking forward to where the brand is going in the months and years to come.”

It all begins with our Circle of Care philosophy, which empowers staff members, franchise owners, and even vendors to go beyond what’s expected, creating a one-of-a-kind educational experience for the children we care for and the families who cherish them. By gaining your trust and always making decisions with your child’s health and happiness in mind, we continually strive to be the complete and total solution for hardworking parents — just like you. Lightbridge Academy provides a solid curriculum for children ages six weeks old to Pre-School and offers extended hours, optional meal plans and summer camp programs. Innovative technology helps parents stay connected to their child throughout the day through our ParentView® Internet monitoring system, allowing parents access to view their child’s classroom at any point in the day via an encrypted, web based system, and the Tadpoles e-communication tool, which tracks a child’s daily achievements and allows teachers to send parent’s daily reports, reminders, photos and even video clips. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you as you navigate through these precious years of life.
