I will keep this short and simple. Lighthouse daycare got no heart for children. That Principal can't even speak English. All she cares about is getting your money. She asks all kind of fees but you have to bring everything yourself. She is so mean and a heartless village farm woman from China. I wonder what College degree to qualify her to become the Principal. There is no word to explain..... First time, I went there to check out the daycare. She said ".....NO APPOINTMENT NO SEE" (hahahaha) and kick me out of the front door. Do you really want to bring your child there? They can only fool the parents that can't speak English or don't know any better. Don't bring your child there!!!

This is my second time I am writing about Lighthouse Pre-school's performance. For starters I am very impressed about their teaching methods. I must admit there are very effective due to the fact that my girls (they are twins) do not know much before attending this school but just after a month I can see and hear the difference. They were able to recite all 26 letters of the alphabet and their pronunciations improved. They are now five years old and the subjects they are teaching in kindergarten are a breeze for them. I know the teachers at Lighthouse can be a tad strict but are fair. Kudos to Miss Ritchelle and Miss Alicia who taught my kids during their two year stay. They still go to LIghthouse when they have school breaks because both I and my wife have to work. Everoboby has rules and having said that I respect that. If someone does not like them then take your child somewhere else. As far as I am concerned every one of the teachers there are able and dedicated.

We are very happy with Lighthouse Preschool's attention to our child's education and Christian based teachings. Our daughter is learning how to write and recognize letters and numbers. She comes home excited about learing bible stories. However, after a couple of months of enrollment, we noticed that the school is constantly trying to find ways to get parents to pay more on top of the monthly tuition. Each holiday party, we are required to pay $10 per child, meanwhile, my child cannot eat more than $2 worth of food. Then the principal gives you a guilt trip for not wanting to participate in their fund raising sales. However, my biggest gripe is their ridiculous policy of if your potty-trained child has an accident, you are required to pay $5 for clean-up. All pre-schools and daycare facilities I know do not charge for clean up as this is supposed to be part of the staff's job! My child only had an accident once in the whole time she was enrolled, so I was surprised that we were asked to pay.
Lighthouse is a great for your child's education, but parent beware of their tactics.

The school has no windows for parents to view how their child is doing. There are no windows on the door to the classroom. You will not know if your child is in the best care possible or how they are behaving.

The director of the school made me feel that I cannot have questions that pose a negative view of the school's integrity. Parents should be able to ask questions on rumors freely without judgement from the school. As a parent it is my responsibility to look out for my own child's safety and well being.

My daughter did not know much before attending this school. The teachers and staffs work hard to prepare for Elementary School. Such as reading, writing, addition and subtraction.

I love it. This is a great school. Before she attended this school. She did not know much. With the hard work of teacher and staff at this school, my daughter now knows numbers, adding, subtracting, reading words, letters and write sentences. wow... I'm really impressed what they can do!!!!! The teachers work really hard to get them prepared for elementary school. They teach kids what they need to learn and it would not be waste.
