Krupa and Ketul Parikh of Lightbridge Academy

Franchisees Krupa and Ketul Parikh did not take entering the child care industry lightly. When they decided to invest in an educational franchise business, they did all their homework, researching programs and reviewing both parent and customer satisfaction to find the best brand in the sector. All their due diligence pointed them in one direction: childcare and development center Lightbridge Academy.

According to Ketul, the couple was impressed with the brand's offerings right from the start. Lightbridge, Ketul says, has all the elements top child care businesses are known for, but they also have upped the game, and there isn't another company that can match their credibility and innovation in the franchisee's opinion.

Lightbridge has a unique "Circle of Care" philosophy that drives its core business and incorporates staff, children, parents, community and franchisees to foster a caring educational environment. This goes beyond the usual focus of a child care center, as the brand takes care of parents in addition to providing a high-quality early education curriculum and top care services. This approach involves giving parents access to their children over the course of each day, with an app that sends them daily reports, education updates, videos, pictures and online monitor programs. It's this philosophy that has made the brand resonate with consumers, and it also drives the success of this franchise model.

Ketul noted that the brand's reputation in his community is fueling the business, as both he and Krupa have received incredibly positive feedback. The parents, according to the franchisee, love that Lightbridge is offering a more updated curriculum and a tech approach that reflects the needs busy parents have today.

Franchisees with this innovative educational brand also enjoy unique benefits, having direct access to top-level company executives. They're also encouraged to ask for support when they need it and to leave feedback. Ketul also praised the franchise company's team, saying he was impressed with them right from their first contact. He and Krupa are looking forward to growing with the brand for the months and years ahead.
