Our Values
Character Values are both modeled throughout our centers and taught in our classrooms. Values such as integrity, respect, responsibility, fairness, honesty, caring, self-control, and citizenship are not only defined but role modeled by management and teachers throughout the day. We believe that we can help strengthen the social fabric of our communities and support parents who want their children educated in a strong culture of these characteristics through teaching these values.
Infants & Toddlers
Birth to 24 month old babies begin to learn about the world from their experiences with the adults in their lives. Our teachers are trained to use the Comprehensive Infant and Toddler Curriculum which was developed specifically for the education of your baby. This curriculum provides everything necessary for a teacher to create a classroom environment that will have a very positive impact on your baby’s growth and development. It is our goal that all infants and toddlers in our program will be supported by loving and kind teachers who encourage their early development.
Lighthouse C.A.R.E.S.℠ Curriculum
Our goal is to nurture the development of each child's full potential - intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically - in an atmosphere of safety and trust.
Character Values Education
Our comprehensive curriculum focuses not only on intellectual development, but also on healthy social and emotional growth through systematic character values education.
Active Engagement
Activities are designed to promote active learning through a "hands on" approach that allows children to explore the world in which they live.
Research-Centered Practice
Learning activities are grounded both in time-honored practice, such as learning through play, as well as in current research findings in the field of neuro-education. "Brain-based" learning strategies, for example, reveal that memory and creativity are enhanced by music, movement, and artistic expression.
Embedded Content
Our fully-integrated curriculum is characterized by thematic units which combine the key skills of reading and mathematics with learning in the content areas of science and social studies.
Standards-based Objectives
Every learning activity is carefully planned to meet or exceed both national and state standards.
Core Values
  • We believe that each child is an individual, with his or her own unique set of strengths, talents, and gifts
  • We believe that every child has a right to excellence in all aspects of early childhood education.
  • We believe in the importance of teaching character values, and more important, in modeling their use in our interactions with children, their families, and one another.
  • We believe in the use of positive discipline strategies that lead children to become self-disciplined.
  • We believe that honest and frequent communication between the school and the home positively impacts children’s success.
  • We believe in the importance of continuing professional development and personal growth through educational opportunities and supportive communities learning.
  • We believe that every teacher and staff member can make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.
School-Agers
The school-age classroom is specifically designed to meet the varied abilities, numerous personalities, and complex interest of children ages five through twelve. Based on the Creative Resources Curriculum, our daily plans are organized around exciting themes which incorporate interactive learning in a fun-filled environment. The themes include the culture of Ancient Greece, China, Japan, Rome and themes such as careers, technology, transportation and rain forests. Opportunities to support the development of "Creative Thinking" – the highest level thinking skill in Bloom’s Taxonomy of learning – are also included daily.

Character Value education is included in the "Schoolers" program. Through both modeling and special projects, children develop essential life skills such as cooperation, self-discipline, pride in a job well-done, respect and gratitude. Individual center locations participate in local community projects, such as creating valentines for local children’s hospitals, collecting supplies for Ronald McDonald House, or singing at a retirement center. As the children explore and experience, they establish concrete real- life knowledge that makes learning meaningful.
Character Values
We believe in the importance of teaching character values, and more important, in modeling their use in our interactions with children, with their families and with one another. Helping children develop essential life skills such as cooperation, self-discipline, pride in a job well-done, respect and gratitude is valuable for their future.
Monthly character values are as follows:
Cooperation September
Helpfulness October
Gratitude November
Patience December
Diversity January
Honesty February
Humor March
Responsibility April
Kindness May
These teaching modules will include a send-home activity for the parents. - Character Connections.
About the Owners
Children's Lighthouse Round Rock is the mutual dream of two like-minded families for whom Children's wellness and education is the top priority.

Dubey Family

Richa Lawania is the co-owner of the Children's Lighthouse Round Rock. Richa and Keshu Dubey started their journey from India to the U.S. 15 years ago, with an aim to struggle, survive and succeed together. Richa has an MBA from the University of Nottingham, UK and has collectively 12 years of experience in customer service, hospitality and Real Estate. Keshu has a strong technology background with 15 years of experience, he completed his MBA at The University of Texas. Both of us strongly believe in the power of education and positive guidance.
We have a simple, yet, convincing story to relate to our passion. When we became the proud parents to our two little munchkins aged 5 and 1, our commitment evolved further with the start of each new day and we understood how important it was for us to build a strong foundation of trust, love and cultural belonging to our growing kids. With a sole aim of providing the best social and character values along with the best educational experience, we tended to evangelize the idea of a trustworthy foundation to serve such needs of every parent and finally came up with Children's Lighthouse. Being Round Rock residents for the last 8 years, there could not be any better location to open our very own Pre-school.

Khanchi Family

Amit Khanchi is the co-owner of Children's Lighthouse Round Rock. After relocating and staying in few different cities around the country, he and his family took the long haul from California and moved to Texas for good. A casual vacation to Austin made them love the city and they decided to move, settle and raise their family here. Amit has been in the technology field for almost the last two decades and has passion for working on innovative ideas and learning something new each day. Amit is passionate about bringing quality Child Care to the neighborhood and strives for excellence in every aspect of Childcare industry. Amit lives in Georgetown with his wife Anu and 2 young children.
