I have chosen this school because it is just great. I absolutely love the directors and and the teachers that my children have. They are all very nice and so welcoming to their school. My 2 year old has learned so much since he has been there. He comes home saying all new stuff that it amazing for a mother to hear. The teachers love my kids like their own which is the best feeling a parent can have when having to leave your child with someone else. They are not very expensive and totally understanding when it comes to money, they find any way to meet my needs when trying to pay tuition or for their books. They also use ABEKA for their cirriculum which is Christian based learning and its AMAZING!!! My kids that go there are Brooklyn Guzman which is 2 and Abigail guzman which is 10 months.

My 7 year old daughter attends Children's Lighthouse in Denton. I am very impressed with the teachers. When I arrive to pick up my daughter the teachers are standing up interacting with the children. They normally have a movie playing at the end of the day, but some children are playing with toys, doing art projects, or as my daughter loves to do.......reading. They do art projects pretty often and my daughter enjoys her time there. I will definately enroll my son next year when he starts school.

My child has been with Childrens Lighthouse Denton for over 1 year now. While all child care has its issues, I have been very pleased. My child has been enrolled in one class during her time and has had the same three teachers in this class room from day one. She has learned to read, spell and simple math. She comes home very happy at the end of each day talking about all her friends and how much fun she had. She has thrived!
Before moving to Texas, we experianced two other child care facilities - All had high turn over as well as employees who literally ignored the children. While Childrens Lighthouse is not perfect, and we have only experianced one classroom, I'm pleased with their performance

For the before and after schooler's... The van that drops kids off and picks them up from Pecan Creek drives 45 and 50 MPH on a 35 posted speed, Post Oak. I have called the school several times to report. My kids do not go there for this reason. Just thought you might want to know...

Business Response:

CLLC Management Shelia we appreciate your concern and thoughts. Childrens Lighthouse takes the safety of the children in our care at the highest priority. The School Director of this location did receive a concerned parent call at the beginning of the school year about this matter. The management team pulled together immediately and addressed the situation. The driver's routes were restructured to allow for better time management also all drivers have been re-trained over the policies and procedures regarding driving and transporting children in our care. We do take this extremely seriously and have a zero tolerance policy against unsafe conditions such as this. There is always room for improvement in any company or person so we are always glad to know what our customers or potential customers are thinking. Thank you again for your thoughts and insights and please continue to feel able to call the school if you see anything of concern in the future.

We deeply apologize that you feel your choice of sending your son to Childrens Lighthouse was a mistake. We take our responsibility in caring for children in the highest standards very seriously. There is always room for improvement and growth in any company or person. Our entire staff including management and teachers go through rigorous training upon hire as well as throughout every year they are employed with us. It is a well known fact throughout the industry that childcare has a higher turnover in staff than a lot of fields due to the high stress levels however, we try to maintain our staff for long term using our trainings and various forms of employee appreciation. The majority of the staff at the center including myself, the Director, have been here for numerous years if not from the opening eight years ago. We have consistently maintained high enrollment due to our parents being satisfied with our services. We have maintained high scores on our annual Quality Assessment evaluation as well as being a training center for other locations. We also have an exemplary record with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services which handles childcare licensing. We have not had any violations or deficiencies since November 2008 throughout the monitoring visits or if a parent calls in as well. Again we do regret that we were unable to please your family and hope that your son gained much from his time with us. We wish you the best in your future endeavors and appreciate the feedback as it always helps us to grow to know what our customers are feeling.

I know that most people who write reviews have been wronged but is that not what reviews are for. My son attended Lighthouse for 2 years and it has been nothing but regret right now for my wife and I. For the better part of the last 1 1/2 years, the management has played musical chairs with their teachers, which has a very negative effect on the kids. They have taken 2 teachers that work well together and split them up to only make the problems worse. This has now happened 2 times with 2 separate sets of teachers. Expressing these concerns with the director or the VP of Operations was like talking to a wall. I have never been lied to so much in my life. My wife and I chose Lighthouse because of the welcoming we got and the faith based education but once he was enrolled, the attitude changed. Lighthouse employs teacher assistants that are verbally abusive, inexperienced and have no business being anywhere around children. It took almost 6 months to have a teacher removed due to her attitude toward our son and us. It had to come down to this person threatening my wife before they fired her. Lighthouse is the epitome of everything that is wrong with child care. All this facility cares about is the bottom line and not the kids. They will soon dismiss children of parents that question their actions but will keep children of parents that are just grateful their child has somewhere to go and does not care about the adverse effect their child has on the other children. If you want to say that I am bitter, well you are right, we both are. I entrusted this facility and management with my child and they have failed 10x over. I do want to say that it has not been all bad. My son has had 4 wonderful teachers who have loved my son and cared for him. That has been the only bright spot. Their efforts and the willingness to work with us and us to work with them has made the difference in us leaving him there for this long. My son is now attending another child care facility and the transition will be difficult for him but we know that anything is better than this place. The can not keep good teachers because they treat them like dirt and it is a hostile environment to work in. Everything stated in this review is fact. My wife and I watch everyday the things that go on and see what is going on when we are there. It is about time someone told the truth. Their mission statement is a joke!!STAY AWAY FROM THIS FACILITY!

The teachers yell, the teachers do not stay, the environment is bad, and look at the fence, children can climb it and get to Teasley Ln. which has cars going 50mph. The BEKA program is overcharged and they do not teach it. Plus, they have surprize fees like insurance that you may want to watch out for.

This christian based preschool/daycare has a great reputation for providing a wonderful learning atmosphere for any child. Their teacher's dedication is refreshing!
