Educational Philosophy

Learning Centers Lighthouse Learning Center Philosophy

We recognize that a child doesn't come to us alone, rather, as a member of a family. We encourage dialogue with you about your child and our curriculum, care giving practice, guidance, and cultural events. We welcome your participation in the center and invite you to become involved in whatever ways you would like or are able.

Guest Educators

We bring in guests for our younger children. Visitors such as petting zoos, local police and fire departments, musicians, and puppeteers are happy to come to the center. Our teachers are creative when planning activities for all age groups.

Learning Centers Parents Can Join the Fun

One of the integral parts of our summer program is the opportunity parents have to participate in their child's summer experience. From chaperoning field trips to enjoying family events, we value and encourage our parent-teacher partnerships.

Help your child see the world as an invitation to learn and grow. For more information, please contact a center near you.
