Our mission at Lighthouse Daycare is to provide quality care and education in a Christian environment, while teaching our children valuable social, emotional, physical and academic skills. Our goal at Lighthouse Daycare is to provide children opportunities to learn about the world around them and grow in a supportive, safe environment. Young children learn best through play, so our programs are designed to include fun, hands-on activities.

We are licensed to work with children from six weeks old through Elementary School. We work with our parents to help each child to reach his or her full potential. Children are separated by age groups to allow our teachers to customize activities to encourage age-appropriate activities and support.

We provide a welcoming, supportive environment where babies can safely explore the world around them. Our staff work hard to keep our babies happy, engaged and safe. Each baby’s care is designed specifically for him or her, including feeding and sleeping schedules, nutritional guidelines, and any other needs for that particular child.
