Dallas-Based Educational Child Care Franchise Welcomes Dr. Martin-Smith to Brand’s Leadership Team

FORT WORTH, Texas – Childrens Lighthouse Learning Center℠, widely recognized as the leading values-based, early-education child care provider in the United States, announced today the appointment of Dr. Kristi Martin-Smith as Director of Education and Training.

Martin-Smith will be responsible for managing the recently accredited Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠ curriculum and providing training to the operations team and all franchisees, ensuring the best possible educational programs for all children enrolled at Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers℠ across the country.

“With Dr. Martin-Smith on board, Children’s Lighthouse will continue to achieve new successes and bring high quality education and child care to even more students,” said Pat Brown, CEO and co-founder of Childrens Lighthouse Learning Centers℠. “Dr. Martin-Smith’s expansive background in early education and curriculum development makes her the perfect fit for this role. We are very happy to welcome her to the Children’s Lighthouse family, and we look forward to seeing all she accomplishes here.”

Martin-Smith’s professional education experience spans more than 30 years, and she has earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership and a master’s in Early Education Administration. She has experience in all facets of education from teaching at both the early education and collegiate levels, to developing early learning and extra-curricular programs for preschool students.

Most recently, Martin-Smith was the executive director of the Early Education Department at Harvest Christian Academy in Fort Worth, Texas, a position she held for more than 23 years. In this role, Martin-Smith managed all areas of the preschool program, including curriculum development and management, strategic planning, parent communication, staff training and development and securing and maintaining curriculum accreditation, uniquely qualifying her for her new role as Director of Education and Training for the entire Children’s Lighthouse franchise system.

“I’m very passionate about bringing quality education to as many families as possible, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to do so with Children’s Lighthouse,” said Martin-Smith. “I’m looking forward to being a part of Children’s Lighthouse’s ongoing objective of engaging students and motivating them to enjoy learning at every age.
