Lightbridge Academy Opens Child Care Center in Lawrenceville

Princeton Online Announcement

Lawrenceville, NJ, July 28, 2016As The Solution for Working ParentsTM, Lightbridge Academy is rapidly expanding in the Northeast as it values 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, owners and the community are equally important and everyone is treated like part of the family. This made it easy for owner, Galina Flider, to choose Lightbridge Academy when she decided to open her Lawrenceville based child care center. “Lightbridge Academy has a family feel rather than a corporate feel, which is important to me,” says Flider.

After much planning, construction and licensing, the new Lightbridge Academy, located at 100 Federal City Road, Building B in Lawrenceville, is opening in October and enrolling students ages six weeks to five years. The center will also provide after school and summer camp programs for children up to 13 years of age.

From left to right are Christopher Weiss, Vice President of Real Estate and Construction, Galina Flider, Franchise Owner, Francesca Trudeau, Center Director and David Falzarano, Vice President of Area Development.

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, Musical Beginnings, 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 enrich the educational program by bringing learning to life in classrooms and the indoor multipurpose room 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 newly constructed center offers enhanced services to support the working parent including extended hours from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm, a biometric finger scanning security system, and ParentView® internet monitoring system, which allows parents to stay connected to their child throughout the day through closed circuit cameras in each classroom and the outside play area.

All of this innovation is balanced with the importance of providing nurturing care. This healthy balance enables Lightbridge Academy to create a safe, engaging, well rounded, happy and academically successful learning environment. Center Director, Francesca Trudeau, says “Lightbridge Academy embodies an exceptional curriculum while maintaining the highest safety protocol and an environment conducive to creating strong bonds of caring and friendship.”
