We moved to San Antonio about a year ago and being the over protective parent that I am, I wasn't sure if I wanted to put him in any schools. Being that we didn't know anyone here in San Antonio, but someone (neighbor) recommended Children's LIghthouse Helotes and I figured I'll give them a try. Knowing they had cameras in each classroom I didn't see why not. So, I enrolled my 3 year old that wasn't even potty trained and crossed my fingers and prayed to God, LOL. It's been almost a year that he has been there and I must say I LOVE IT THERE!!! My son was potty trained in like a week! With the best teacher. He loves his school and everyone in it. The staff is AWESOME and the teachers EXCEPTIONAL! If you want a school where you can drop off your child and have NO worries, this is the place! I don't even look at the cameras anymore because I know my son is in the BEST hands.

Our 4 year old son and 3 year old daughter have been at the school since 10/2011 and they have grown tremendously. English is their second language and they started out not speaking any English and now they are fluent. The teachers are wonderful and caring and has nurtured our children in a loving environment. We are incredibly pleased with the school and their caring staff.

My son has been attending Children's Lighthouse for almost a year and he absolutely loves it! He was attending another preschool in a different area closer to my work, but I could tell he really wasn't enjoying it and neither was I for the price. So I started looking at schools near home and I came across this wonderful school. It's more costly than the last, but it's definitely worth it and I wouldn't have it any other way. The teachers are very involved and so are the staff. He's not the easiest child to work with, but they go the extra mile to work with him and it shows that they really care about my child and his success. He's in the Private Kindergaren class and he is learning so much and he's actually really eager about learning and never complains about having to go to school like most children do. The summer program is also great! My 7 year old loves going to Children's Lighthouse during the summer. They're always doing activities or going on field trips. With everything they do here, I don't refer to it as a preschool, it's more of a school with a very personable atmosphere. The staff and director are great! I don't usually recommend places, but this school is worth it.

My son has been attending CL Helotes since he was 6 months old; he is now almost 4. We have been completely pleased with everything at the school. The teachers are amazing -- very loving and concerned about all the children they care for. The curriculum is great -- my son knows colors, shapes (even octogons!), numbers, and is working on recognizing the alphabet in the abstract. The administration is in tune and responsive to all concerns -- they greet us by name when we walk in, know many details about our son and family, and are in tune with any issues we may be dealing with at any one time (currently, new baby in the house and the challenges that is creating for our son). Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about CL Helotes and the staff and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a caring, secure, yet challenging childcare and school environment!

My daughter just starting going here this month and I just love it. The teachers in room 5 are so nice and really make to drop offs in the morning so much easier for both me and her. I love the staff and how friendly and helpful they are. I cant wait to see how much she will learn and grow from being in such a positive environment.

I moved my daughter to CLLC at Helotes in May and have loved it since. The staff is always very helpful and happy and has great connections with every student. Her teachers are great with understanding my daughters needs and always make me feel that she is important to them personally. I love the staff, school, location and would recommend this daycare for anyone in this community.

We first discovered The Children's Lighthouse Helotes when I needed a summer program for my two school aged children. After only one week in the summer program at a different center, my kids begged me not to return. So we ended up at The Children's Lighthouse by chance. They loved it and have asked to return each summer since then. My youngest child started here when she was four years old and is now in their private Kindergarten class. She has a November birthday so she didn't make the cut-off for public Kindergarten. She is learning so much and has begun to read short sentences by January! She will likely go straight to first grade next year because she has learned so much at The Children's Lighthouse. The staff really gets to know your child and the overall atmosphere is very warm and friendly. I highly recommend this school.

I moved my son to Children's Lighthouse after his previous school suddenly closed. I was worried about making him go through another transition, but I soon realized how great the staff and teachers are. There are times when my son will ask for his teachers on the weekends; I think that s a great testament to how caring and nurturing they are. As for the curriculum, I m always impressed with how much and how quickly my son is learning. Overall Excellent school!

My son began going to Childrens Lighthouse when he was 2 months old. I never wanted to put my child in a daycare but life situations made us. I searched for the perfect place and Children's Lighthouse Helotes is the only place I found. We began in room one and went all the way to room 5. We are no longer attending because I have been blessed to stay home. Children's Lighthouse Helotes was a blessing in our lives. I never referred to it as a daycare but a school. My son learned so much in the 3 years he was there. The teachers are amazing. They care for each child as if it were their own. My son still talks about all his teachers from Children's lighthouse. The director, Cyndi and the front office staff are amazing as well. They always make you feel welcome and make it a point to know all the parents and kids who attend their school. This school is truly like no other.

My daughter is now three, but started at Childrens Lighthouse in Helotes at age one. She was our first born. We were very apprehensive as what daycare to put her in.We were blessed in finding this daycare. She loves her teachers and the school. She has learned great socialization skills and manners.The curriculum is awesome, and she is constantly teaching us new things as well. My son is now attending this daycare and we we have been nothing but pleased with the staff in Room 1. He started at four months, and we were concerned that daycare would not be the best fit for an infant, but he loves Ms. Jenny and Ms. Bonnie. He is now nine months and is so excited when he gets to his classroom. Thank you Childrens Lighthouse for taking care of our babies.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Children's Lighthouse of Helotes!!! Our son has been there since he was six months old and is now almost 3 years old. He has learned SO much and grown by leaps and bounds thanks to ALL of the wonderful teachers there. The teachers are excellent at communicating his needs, his successes and of course, funny stories about things our son has done at school! He has progressed both socially and academically and we couldn't be more proud of our little guy! As an educator in the public school system I know what an asset a solid foundation can be for students and The Children's Lighthouse certainly fosters that environment. As a parent I can also appreciate the cleanliness of the school - it is immaculate & smells AMAZING!!! The front office staff are super friendly and are always available to assist whenever necessary. I HIGHLY recommend this preschool! I've even thought about working there myself! ;)

From the first day I left Layla at Lighthouse, I knew she was in good hands. Over the past year that my daughter has been with this wonderful school she s learned SO MUCH. I would like to say that I had a part in it, but the people who ve played the biggest part are you all, especially her teachers in Room 3 & 4. As Layla goes from room to room, I see her growing into this wonderful little girl and it warms my heart. One of the main things that I stress with her at home is the importance of independence which is also reinforced with you all and I m very grateful. I also love how you guys work so well together, in helping each other accomplish your daily mission. Everything about Children s Lighthouse Helotes is awesome from the warm greeting I get every day from the friendly administrative staff (Cyndi, Stacey, Emerald and Amanda) to the wonderful lunch Layla is provided with from Ms. Bonnie, to the outdoor play time she gets with her friends. My all-time favorite part of my day is when Layla leaves for the day and she makes her exit ! I love how I can talk to everyone there like they re family- because in our hearts you are.

From the first day I walked in teary eyed because I was uphappy with the daycare prior (at that time 8 week old) Aaron was in, to the time Miss Cyndi called that there was availability, to this day when I leave our baby we are nothing but happy! My little Aaron has grown up quickly and he laughs and he smiles and he waves bye bye and says no no most of which is learned from this day care. Our son is now 10 months old and I feel so comfortable with each teacher I have met along the way as well as with the great staff who works hard to make sure our child is well taken care of! My husband and I have no doubt we made the best choice to leave our son! Thank you Children's Lighthouse - Helotes.

My daughter has been at Childrens Lighthouse since she was 14 months old, she is now 4 years old. I was so worried about putting my daughter into daycare because she had alot of special needs and I didn't feel a daycare facility would be willing to meet those needs. I was wrong! The teachers and administation are Wonderful, Caring people who go out of their way to get to know your child and love them. They help to raise and guide your child with a loving and Christian hand. I love that they instill Christian traditions into the daily routine. They really Listen to the parents and go out of their way to help guide your child as you would at home. My son who is now 7 months old also attends and I have always felt like I was leaving him with family members for the day. It's so comforting as a parent to know your leaving your child in the care of people who truly love being around children and are not just there for a paycheck. Thank You Childrens Lighthouse of Helotes for who you are and for all that you do for our children! I would highly recommend The Lighthouse to all parents of young children living in the Helotes area!

Our daughter has been at the Children's Lighthouse since she was 16 months old and will be turing 5 at the end of the month! She LOVES the school and so do we. She still gets excited everyday to go to school. All of the teachers are EXCELLENT, very nice and are great at communicating what she is learing and how her day goes. My daughter has learned so much from the cirriculum, she writes all her letters and is almost reading! The centers director and front staff are always availble, courteous and go above and beyond! You are always greeted and you know that your child is safe because the building is controlled by a security sysytem that only allows parents and staff in. If you ever needed to speak with the owners, they are also available and care about your children just as much as the teachers do. Our infant will be starting the school in February and we know she is in good hands.

Our 4 year old daughter has been going to Children s Lighthouse since August & really enjoys it. The curriculum is great & if she is out the worksheets that she missed out on are in her folder so that we can work on them at home. Her teachers are wonderful & are always available for questions regarding how she is doing & will write in her folder as to how her day was. Communication is a key thing here. We receive monthly newsletters that will tell us about what the teachers hope to do throughout the month which is nice to know in order to be able to help at home. She is excited to go & tell me about new things that she is learning or sing me songs that she has learned. If she is having an off morning then by the time we get to school & she walks into class her morning turns around because she is excited to see her teachers & friends in class. The front office is always so courteous & greets you upon entering the building which is another nice thing. Staff members throughout the building will say Good Morning or Good Afternoon whether or not your child is in their class or not and they genuinely seem happy to be there to teach the kids.

Our daughter has been at Children's Lighthouse in Helotes for about six months, since she was about seven weeks old. We love the care and curriculum that is provided by the staff here. The teachers communication with the parents is superb and goes well beyond, She had a great day today. Often, we receive updates on her activities that include what color is being emphasized that week, which songs are being taught, and what shapes are being introduced. This communication is vital to our daughter s learning process as we have been able to re-enforce learning lessons and activities while at home. We have seen tremendous growth in our daughter s learning process, and for that we are extremely grateful. What stands out most is the genuine excitement and enthusiasm the staff shows for each child each day we enter the school. Our daughter definitely notices it and routinely smiles, flaps her arms, and at times nearly jumps out of our arms when she sees her teachers. We feel a parent couldn t ask for anything more out of a caregiver and teacher.

I love this place! I withdrew my daughter from Children's lighthouse (Alamo Ranch) and in-rolled her here (Helotes) I love it and my daughter and son love it. Everyone is very professional, the teacher are so nice, everyone is so nice. This learning center provides... Structure, education, caring staff and teachers and just a safe place to leave your children.
