Company Overview
Founded in 1997 under the name of Rainbow Academy, the company was formed on a foundation of strong family values by Guy & Julia Falzarano. While running their first child care center, they experienced first-hand the stresses that working parents faced while trying to balance work and life. In an effort to more fully support them, additional programs and services were developed to meet the needs of parents while also educating and caring for children.

In 2014, the company was renamed as Lightbridge Academy to ensure that our unique company had an equally unique name that would never be confused by any other child care in the marketplace. There's so much that sets Lightbridge Academy apart from other child care and early education providers. For starters, we know that the quality of the relationships that we form and the service that we provide will ultimately transform the lives of those we touch. That is why we take care to treat each family member as our own…and that is just the beginning.

  • Care Deeply… with every genuine interaction.
  • Creating happy memories in a joyful environment.
  • Integrity. Being honest and respectful in all relationships.
  • Lead by Example. Set the example for all others to follow.
  • Deliver… consistent “WOW” customer service.
  • Recognize & Celebrate. Build meaningful relationships while recognizing accomplishments.
  • Excellence. Never settling for “good enough” by continuously improving and embracing change.
  • Nurture… each family member in a supportive and positive environment.

Job Mission
