Lightbridge Academy plans to open this summer in Plano.

The childcare franchise will be owned and operated by family members Chetana, Devan and Krishna Shah. It will offer infant care, toddler programs, preschool education and pre-K readiness.

A grand opening celebration will be scheduled following the opening of the business which will feature on-site center tours, curriculum overviews, technology demonstrations, entertainment, refreshments and activities for children.

“It's going to be a wonderful opportunity for families to explore our offerings and experience firsthand the quality care and education we provide to working families at Lightbridge Academy of Plano,” a company representative said in an email.
