A Gold Standard Solution for Working Parents

Lightbridge Academy is a great solution for busy, working parents who are looking to ease the stresses of life. Enrollment is currently open in all classrooms.
“We know the challenges you face and recognize that in addition to your child needing a high-quality education and nurturing care, you have needs, too,” the Assistant Center Director, Carmen DeMichele told Hoboken Girl. “For this reason, we developed industry-leading programs including ParentView® Internet monitoring and an e-Communication app providing a real-time and ongoing connection throughout the day. Parents experience peace of mind with our gold standard for health and safety, extended hours, back-up care, nutritious snacks and meal plans, extracurricular activities, and even occasional evening babysitting for parents to enjoy a night out!”
Safety Within the Lightbridge Academy Circle of Care
The top priority is always the health and safety of all those in the Circle of Care. Now more than ever, this holds true. Lightbridge Academy offers full-time and part-time child care options for children 6 weeks to 5 years old. The classes are broken into age groups: the Infant program, the Toddler program, the Preschool program, and the Pre-K program. Enrollment is currently open in all four programs.
“The best part of running the Lightbridge Academy on Willow Avenue is seeing the children come to school happy and excited to see their teachers every day,” Carmen told Hoboken Girl. “They are eager to learn and engage in the new fun activities that our wonderful staff have created for them!”
The goal is to transform the lives of families by treating them as part of the Lightbridge Academy family.“We truly strive to create long-lasting loving relationships with our families for years to come,” Carmen mentioned. “We want to be a place in Uptown Hoboken where families are excited to tour, enroll their children and be part of something much more than ‘just a daycare’.”
