Why Join the Child Care Industry?

Child care isn’t only emotionally fulfilling, it has also proven to be an essential service — no matter what the economy or where parents work, they need child care to focus on their day. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, for example, Lightbridge Academy proved to be an essential resource for parents needing to balance the demands of caring for the needs of their family and the demands of their jobs. Looking ahead, the need for quality child care has never been greater, and as a result, a business like Lightbridge Academy offers a prime investment opportunity.


A recent study published by Grand View Research revealed:

  • Child care is expected to become a $83.6 billion industry by 2030, realizing nearly 5.86% compound annual growth.
  • The early education & early daycare segment dominated the market in 2023 with the largest revenue share of 45.66% and is expected to grow the fastest during the forecast period.
  • Government investment in early childhood education is expected to grow; the Federal government recently created a $5.9 billion block grant program targeting this sector.
