CHILDREN'S LIGHTHOUSE vs MONTESSORI
Here at Children's Lighthouse, We Strongly Believe in Using a Balanced Approach to Teach Young Children
Our learning areas in our infant & toddler classrooms and our learning centers in our preschool classrooms allow children to become active seekers of their own knowledge, very similar to a Montessori program.

Our learning center activities surpass other programs because we identify target skills for each group, and these skills are embedded into our learning center activities. We combine the best of both worlds - learning that supports creativity and independent thinking and provides targeted learning goals designed to prepare your child for kindergarten and a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
