    The Solution For Working Parents®
    Our goal is to ease the stresses of busy, working parents. We know the challenges you face and recognize that in addition to your child needing a high-quality education and nurturing care, you have needs, too! For this reason, we developed industry-leading programs including ParentView® Internet monitoring and an e-Communication app providing a real-time and ongoing connection throughout the day. Parents experience peace of mind with our gold standard for health & safety, extended hours, back-up care, nutritious snacks and meal plans, extracurricular activities, and even occasional evening babysitting for parents to enjoy a night out!

    More Than A Daycare Center
    The term "daycare" is often used interchangeably to mean a babysitting service. This is not Lightbridge Academy; we are so much more than just a daycare! We play a transformative role in the lives of families and we take this very seriously. Our proprietary early childhood education curriculum impacts the "whole" child in a multitude of ways. By embracing every moment as another opportunity to learn, all developmental areas are met, unlocking every child's potential including academic success. Our state-of-the-art child care center provides a professional yet nurturing home-away-from-home environment where you and your child will feel comfortable.

    Isn't this what you envision for your family?

    Comment:  My son is 19-months old and has been going to Lightbridge for a few months now (since shortly after they opened their doors).We've had a wonderful experience thus far - he LOVES his teachers and friends and I've had a great experience with all the staff, who have been so warm, welcoming and super accommodating to make sure our start at their center went as smoothly as possible.

    Comment:  Review: My kid was home with his two parents for the first almost 1.5 years of his life because of covid curveballs. Luckily, the team at Lightbridge were amazing and helped him adjust and feel comfortable with daycare from the very first moment he walked in the door. Only a couple of weeks in and he barely even said goodbye to his parents because he was so excited to be at school with his friends and amazing teachers and staff! He loves the program and the interactions with staff and peers. We are so happy to have our son with people we trust!Facility amenities: Has after-school options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals, Currently offers snack, will be offering a meal option in coming monthsWhat would you change about the program? Just waiting for their meal plan to become available, so I can stop preparing lunches from home (but it's okay, I know it's coming within the next few months)!

    Comment:  Belinda (one of the owners) and the entire team have been extremely warm, welcoming and really willing to work with families on our needs, especially as they've been getting up to full speed.E., my 18-month old, reaches for the staff member at the door greeting us with excitement and happily waves goodbye to us at the door. Later parents, get outta my face! He's clearly happy there:)

    Comment:  My 18 month old has been at Lightbridge since they opened in April. There have been a few bumps getting things up and running, nothing safety concerning, stuff like nap schedule and snacks. But we've found them to be really communicative and happy to work with us throughout, which I've found very comforting. My daughter loves all the women who work there and they love her too (she excitedly shows them her outfit every day when I pick her up, they have a little game together), and her teacher Ms. Destiny is really lovely and on top of things. I wish they had their own outdoor space, but they do take the kids outside and around the neighborhood a lot, to the playground, to play with sidewalk chalk, at least when the weather is better than it is today :)

    Comment:  My now 13-month-old daughter started 3 days a week at Lightbridge in May and she has been so happy there. They are still working out the flow in terms of what teachers will permanently be in what rooms, and the administrators have changed, but we have had good communication with everyone and our daughter is so happy to go there in the morning. She runs in the door! They have been great about personalizing her plan as we work towards her napping in a cot. She has personalized attention and only a few kids in her class - a benefit of starting there right when they opened. I know they are expecting more kids in the fall.
