Leading Educational Child Care School to Open Fall of 2020
HOUSTON – Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning Schools℠, widely recognized as the leading values-based, early learning school in the United States, announced today that it will open the 21st Childrens Lighthouse location in the Houston area at 2109 W 34th St. Childrens Lighthouse of Oak Forest is owned by Alexis Legg and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.
The demand is growing for educational child care in the area, and more than ever, parents are putting a high priority on placing their children in an engaging environment where fun and learning come together. Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning Schools℠ are safe and secure environments that give parents peace of mind with online links to rooms, computerized building entry, security monitoring and transportation to and from area elementary schools.
“As a mother of two, I struggled to find a school that I felt comfortable bringing my children to and knew other families in the area felt similarly,” said Alexis. “When I came across Childrens Lighthouse, it felt like the perfect fit. I look forward to bringing a safe, educational and dependable option to our neighbors in Oak Forest.”
This is the first Childrens Lighthouse location for Legg, but with an extensive background in education, she plans to expand with the brand and looks forward to combining her passion and talents to grow healthy brains, bodies and best behaviors in Oak Forest. While earning her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Houston, Alexis worked at an early learning school near the campus. After graduating, she went on to teach K-5 at public and private schools for 10 years while mentoring and coaching other teachers. Legg also spent time living and teaching in Dubai while earning a master’s degree in Education from The American University in Dubai. Most recently, she worked for Spring Branch Independent School District writing curriculum and training teachers.
As the first two-story Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning School℠, Childrens Lighthouse Oak Forest will provide ample space for children to learn in classroom and group settings, while also offering extensive play areas both inside and out. An on-site kitchen will offer healthy meals and snacks daily for students. Childrens Lighthouse serves families with children six weeks to 12 years old. In addition to educational child care during traditional school hours, highly interactive after-school programs and summer camps are also available.
With experienced early learning guiding the company’s operations, Childrens Lighthouse has embedded its proprietary Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠ curriculum into its programming at all existing and upcoming schools. The integrated learning strategies of Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠ focus on students’ intellectual development, social and emotional growth, active learning through hands-on lessons and embedded content that emphasizes the fundamental basics of phonics, reading, math, science and social studies.
Childrens Lighthouse is on a rapid ascent to the top of the educational childcare industry, and franchise investors are taking notice. Along with the forthcoming school in Oak Forest, 25 new Childrens Lighthouse Learning Schools℠ are in development or under construction, preparing to join the 50 that are already operating.
“We are growing into new areas with talented individuals such as Alexis, who share our passion for community, nurturing care and education,” said Michael Brown, president of Childrens Lighthouse Early Learning Schools℠. “We couldn’t be happier about adding an early learning school in Oak Forest and doing so with such a gifted educator. Childrens Lighthouse has a bright future in the region.”
Launched 23 years ago, Childrens Lighthouse provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to open in attractive metropolitan areas. Ownership in a Childrens Lighthouse franchise includes a full suite of support services, including site selection, financing guidance, construction administration and grand opening marketing best practices. Childrens Lighthouse’s initial and ongoing training and support is led by an experienced team of educational childcare veterans, providing the franchise owner invaluable insight and leadership for the entire life of the franchise.
