Welcome to the Lighthouse Christian Preschool

012-preschoolThe Lighthouse Christian Preschool is conveniently nestled in beautiful Santa Monica, CA.  Choosing a preschool for your child is a very important decision for every parent. Our aim is to provide you with the most valuable information about our preschool in order to aid in your decision in choosing a preschool in the Southern California area.

The Lighthouse Christian Preschool is a non-profit preschool operating as a ministry of The Lighthouse Church of Santa Monica. We have provided quality care and instruction since the late 1990’s.

Our belief is that each child is an individual and has different needs that need to be addressed individually.  Therefore, we believe there is no one technique or theory to meet each child’s individual needs.  On the other hand, children have many of the same needs, namely, the need to be loved, to be heard and understood, to be accepted for who they are, to be introduced to real experiences and the right to learn.  Many of the learning experiences have been adapted from specific theorists (mentioned on the Encouraging Development page) for the growth and development of young children.
