Lightbridge Academy

Lightbridge Academy is so much more than just a daycare!  Many working parents need care for their children but also desire a high quality early childhood educational program. This is what they offer at Lightbridge Academy. They know the transformative role they play in the lives of children and parents and they take it very seriously. Their educational child care center provides a professional yet nurturing home-away-from-home environment where the parent and child will feel comfortable.


Why US?

  • No inventory to spoil or “disappear” out the back door
