Lightbridge Academy Ground Breaking and Check Presentation
Despite some heavy downpours, the recent groundbreaking ceremony for Port St. Lucie's first Lightbridge Academy early childhood education center went forward with much fanfare.
As the first to open this franchise in Florida, owners Al Ferrari and family are delighted!
Determined to find the 'best fitting' area for the community, Ferrari secured a location at 8565 Commerce Centre Drive. The new build expects to open in late winter of this year.
When the skies settled, and with the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and the rest of the crowd cheering their best wishes, the shovels plunged into the wet earth, officially marking the occasion.
"We are beyond excited to bring the highest quality of care and education to the young children in our community," said Ferrari, who hopes this will be the first of many Lightbridge Academies set to open in the great state of Florida!
As a civic-minded organization, Lightbridge's Circle of Care ensures a community approach to children's safety, nurturing, and education by offering the Lightbridge Promise, "the child care industry's Gold Standard for cleanliness, security, and peace of mind."
Ferrari, determined to be a great neighbor, presented a check to Debbie Butler of the Guardian's for New Futures for Kids Children's Advocacy Center in the same plaza. Established in 2001, the Academy's nonprofit arm, the Lightbridge Foundation, supports the communities its childcare centers serve.
And, Lightbridge students, parents, and team members will learn the value of helping others by participating in charitable events in their community.
