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.
What parents are saying
We find comfort in knowing that our girls are in a safe, clean and educational environment as well as being surrounded by teachers that are caring and nurturing.
Shawna M
here is no greater feeling as a parent then knowing my daughter was in a great learning and fun-loving environment while I was working.
Sarah J
I worked as a professional nanny for 10 years and as a result I am very particular about the childcare I choose for my daughter. This school has surpassed my expectations. The teachers work with each child so patiently and make them feel cared for as if they were their own.
Rebecca I
We love the school and the teachers as well as the admin staff. They are always friendly and there is nothing better than your kids being excited to go and stay at school. Keep up the good work!

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
Children 5 - 12 years of age will have a special classroom specifically designed to meet their developmental level. Elementary children will enjoy our thematic approach using Creative Resources. The lesson plans are developed to enhance their education in a fun environment after school. As children explore the high-interest themes, they will experience subjects throughout the year that will establish concrete knowledge that makes the 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, their families, and one another.
The character values for each month will be as follows.
Cooperates September
Helps Others October
Appreciates Humor March
Resists Impatience December
Accepts Responsibility April
Cares & Shows Kindness May
Trusts & is Trustworthy February
Expresses Gratitude November
Recognizes & Celebrates Differences January
These new teaching modules will also include a send-home activity for the parents - Character Connections.
