Paving a path to academic success for young students, Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers today announced the opening of its newest location in Cypress. The learning center will officially open its doors on August 14, offering high-quality early childhood education and child care that helps stimulate intellectual development in a safe, warm and welcoming environment designed to bring out the best in children.
The center is located at 8717 Fry Road in Cypress. The center is owned and operated by Jessica and John Wilson, who oversee the management of the facility, along with a center director and full staff of teachers and administrators. The family is passionate about bringing high quality child care to the Cypress community.
“Like all parents, our world revolves around our kids – so choosing a family-oriented industry was a top priority for us when we decided to pursue business opportunities,” Jessica said. “We were lucky to have experienced Children’s Lighthouse as parents with a child enrolled in the preschool program, where she excelled and developed a genuine love for learning. We can’t wait to provide that same passion to parents and families in Cypress.”
Local families have clearly taken to the warm and engaging environment Children’s Lighthouse offers. The Cypress center is the second to open in the area and there are an additional 45 centers in operation throughout the United States.
“Our growth is a direct reflection of the dedication we have to providing children with the highest quality educational child care,” said Stephen Dixon, chief development officer for Fort Worth-based Children’s Lighthouse Franchise Company. “Our franchisees want to build a business they can feel good about and, through our early learning schools, they can be confident they are making a positive impact on their community.”
Spanning 10,500 square feet, with sizable indoor and outdoor play areas, the new facility has 10 individual classrooms and an on-site kitchen to provide students with freshly prepared, healthy meals every day. The center is technology-advanced, featuring electronic tablets and electronic whiteboards, and classroom management software that will keep parents up to speed with their child's progress.
“The greatest reward we can hope for with our center is knowing that we laid a foundation for a lifetime of passionate learning,” added Jessica. “Each child’s ‘success’ will be defined differently as he or she grows toward adulthood, but if learning is viewed positively, the sky is the limit!”
The school also features security code controlled door locking and computerized check-in and classroom surveillance, ensuring parents have peace of mind when dropping their child off. And, with Children’s Lighthouse’s internet monitoring connection, parents can even watch their children from the comfort of their own home or office.
The mission of Children’s Lighthouse is to promote positive development of young children in all areas of growth including social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development. The centers use and follow its proprietary and nationally accredited curriculum, Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S., which is built on a foundation of academic excellence and character values training.
