The much anticipated Grand Opening for the new Lightbridge Academy of Lawrenceville will take place Saturday, December 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. As the solution for working parents, Lightbridge Academy is rapidly expanding in the Northeast, and the brand attributes its value for innovation as one of the keys to staying ahead of the curve in order to prepare children for academic success.
Coupled with their Circle of Care philosophy, which is at the heart of this company, the needs of children, parents, staff and the community are equally important and everyone is treated like part of the family. “The community has been so welcoming. We are excited to become the premiere child care center in the area, while giving back to this wonderful community,” said Galina Flider, center owner.
After much planning, construction, and licensing, the new Lightbridge Academy, located at 100 Federal City Road, Building B in Lawrenceville, is now open and enrolling students ages six weeks to five years. Flider and center director Francesca Trudeau are thrilled to host parents and children for a train-themed grand opening.
Families are invited to tour the facility, meet the teachers, and enjoy train rides, live music, a raffle, refreshments and gymnastics with My Gym. Interactive whiteboard demonstrations will show how the use of technology enhances the Seedlings curriculum. Township of Lawrence Mayor Dr. David Maffei and MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Robert Prunetti will participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. welcoming Lightbridge Academy to the community.
Lightbridge Academy’s proprietary Seedlings Early Childhood Education Curriculum utilizes a “whole” child approach to learning and enrichment including Handwriting without Tears, a reading/writing readiness program, music, American Sign Language, Spanish, and more. Teachers are provided with cutting edge technology to enhance parent communication and the learning environment. iPad technology and interactive whiteboards enhance the educational program by bringing learning to life in classrooms every day. An eCommunication app provides parents with classroom updates, pictures and videos of their child’s day.
The 8,500-square-foot state-of-the-art center offers enhanced services to support the working parent including extended hours from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., a biometric finger scanning security system and closed circuit cameras in addition to ParentView internet monitoring, which allows parents to stay connected to their children throughout the day in each classroom and the outside play area.
Lightbridge Academy’s Circle of Care philosophy treats everyone like family including staff members and the outcome is a one-of-a-kind educational experience and nurturing care for the children, parents and the community. “We have enjoyed actively participating in many community events, including providing crafts at concerts in the parks and story times at various locations. We love Lawrenceville and you can count on us to be an integral part of the community,” said Trudeau.
