This is the best preschool. We drove 10 miles each way so my daughter could go here when we had several preschools within 2 miles of us. Little Light met and even exceeded all of my expectations, and being a former teacher myself, I am very particular. I truly felt like my daughter was safe, loved, valued, educated and above all very happy at this school. The director puts her heart and soul into this school, its teachers and students. One of my favorite aspects is its passion for science, the school hosts a Science Night each fall at night, free, and open to the public, the staff really goes all out and Little Light's love for teaching children is very evident. I also loved that the classroom was clean, well organized and had lots of windows and natural light, making for a warm, inviting space. The building is secure and the staff is very safety aware. My daughter loved the playground with the trike track. They do a great job of preparing Pre-K students for Kindergarten while keeping things fun, imaginative and developmentally appropriate. I can't say enough good things, if you desire a small school with a caring and on-top-of-it staff, Little Light is the place!

We had the most amazing 4 years at Little Light Preschool! Both of my children left preschool well prepared academically and socially for kindergarten. The thing that makes this school special is the nurturing with the right balance of discipline. I always felt like they were an extension of what we did at home. The kids learn through play and hands-on experience. I remember watching what I thought was a game of toss, but they were actually learning the alphabet. Catch the toss and call out the letter. The teachers are very creative and come up with so many fun activities (one of my son's favorites was building an irrigation system in the sand with PVC pipes). The classrooms have learning centers, painting, art table, dress up, imaginative play, reading center, building blocks and music. The playground area is spacious with a bike path, grass, covered play equipment, sand pit and a garden. They have some great events throughout the year including Science Night, Art Night and Transportation Day. The kids still enjoy coming back to visit for these events and they are now in 2nd and 4th grade. We are so thankful that our kids were blessed with such a wonderful preschool!

I have had 3 children attend Little Light Preschool my first Nicole, who was 4 at the time enrolled the first year they were opened. I was very worrried about Nicole being she was a very shy and timid child who was lacking most important social skills. Social skills are very important to ccontinue your learning sucess. Not only did they work with her on her social skills and I saw a complete turn around they prepared her for kindergarten learning in a way I could have not expected. She left kindergarten at the top of her class. She now starts highschool in August and is enrolled in all honors classes preparing her for a full college tuition scholarship. My 2nd daughter Katie, and my 3rd daughter Emily were also enrolled in Little Light Preschool at the age of 3. They also left with a learning experience that carried them through the years. Both are straight A students with excellent work ethics.......... My husband and I would like to thank Little Light Preschool and its dedicated staff for what they have done for my family. We couldn't have done it without you.........

My second child to attend Little Light will be completing preschool this May. We have had a wonderful experience and feel blessed to have found such fantastic school. The hands on learning that takes place here is irreplaceable! In a day and age where children have to jump in to such mature kindergarten curriculum, it is a relief to be a part of a school that understands the need for children in this age group to learn through play and experience. Both of my children were reading by the spring of their 4-year-old year. They just had an alphabet baseball game and every child was able to name their letters and the sounds they make. As someone with a background in Early Childhood Education and teaching experience in kindergarten and preschool, it doesn't get much better than that!
