Children’s Lighthouse Partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®

Fort Worth-Based Early Learning School Franchise Launches National Philanthropic Partnership

August 12, 2019 // // FORT WORTH, Texas - Childrens Lighthouse Learning CentersSM, widely recognized as the leading values-based, early-education provider in the United States, announced today a national partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

Franchise partners of Children’s Lighthouse have the opportunity to give back to St. Jude through the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon program, a national fundraising initiative. The St. Jude Trike-A-Thon is a fun, service learning program for early learning schools and preschools that teaches trike and riding toy safety.

Children’s Lighthouse early learning schools are also empowered to participate and create teams for the St. Jude Walk/Run during September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, of which Children’s Lighthouse is a sponsor.

Through the partnership, the brand has a goal of raising more than $30,000 for St. Jude for the 2019-2020 school year.

“We’re honored to launch our national partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and provide this opportunity to our franchisees,” said Michael Brown, president of Childrens Lighthouse Learning CentersSM. “As we grow across the country and our schools serve more families every day, it’s important to remember those in need. We’re excited to raise money and awareness for the children who need it the most.”

So far, numerous Children’s Lighthouse schools have committed to participating in the partnership and fundraise for the hospital.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

The mission of Children’s Lighthouse is to connect families together with independent owners in an effort to enrich communities through a relationship based on safety and trust. Children’s Lighthouse does this by partnering with parents to develop children with character values and physical wellness in a S.T.R.E.A.M.SM enriched learning environment. Additionally, franchisees across the network are actively involved with their local communities and regularly give back through volunteering, donations and more.

Launched 24 years ago, Children’s Lighthouse provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to open in attractive metropolitan areas. Ownership in a Children’s Lighthouse franchise includes a full suite of support services, including site selection, financing guidance, construction administration and grand opening marketing best practices. Children’s Lighthouse’s initial and ongoing training and support is led by an experienced team of early education veterans, providing the franchise owner invaluable insight and leadership for the entire life of the franchise.
