Lights Learning Center is a ministry of The Lighthouse Church in Vancouver,
Washington and serves families throughout the community by providing childcare, and preschool in a group setting.
All of our staff are qualified, screened and
trained. Your "Little Light" is important to us, and we take great care
in creating an ideal environment for their physical and emotional growth.
We offer the following programs:
- Infants (age one month and up)
- Toddlers (age 12 months and up)
- PreSchool Classrooms
- School-age Classrooms
The Center provides healthy snacks for morning
and afternoon. We can talk with you about special arrangements for
breakfast or lunch, depending on your schedule and your child's needs.
Our learning center helps prepare children for
Kindergarten and beyond. Preschoolers receive instruction and practice in
recognizing and writing their name, as well as working on both upper and lower
case alphabet letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. Children in both Toddler
and Preschool classes have exposure to words and songs with sign language.
Physical activities provided help develop fine
and gross motor skills. Language development and social/emotional skills
include a variety of games and activities, working alone and in a group, and
following directions. Cognitive development involves many areas, including the
following concepts; sorting, matching, classification, sequencing, problem
solving, and reasoning. Spiritual development includes Bible, stories, prayer,
worship, singing, memory verses and Chapel on Thursday.
Long range themes are chosen by the children.
The teachers then facilitate learning by providing a framework of activities
for the children to begin with, developing them for further exploration based
on child interest. Activities happen throughout the day, so whether your child
attends during Preschool time or for full day child care, a wide range of
experiences are available.
