The goal of the Lighthouse Center for Infants is to express the love, care and compassion of Jesus Christ to all as we endeavor to provide developmentally appropriate and excellent quality care for the infant and toddlers (ages 3 months to 24 months) assigned to our care. Employees of LCI strive to exemplify 1 Corinthians 16:14 “Do everything in Love” and Colossians 3:17 “and whatever you do whether in word or deed. Do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Our mission is to use Holy Scripture and Early Childhood Practices to promote and enhance each child’s individual development. We want to demonstrate the Love of Christ while assuring the parents peace of mind in the care and services we render.
LCI provides a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate program which fosters active development supporting the whole child. We strive to accommodate each child’s individual rate of development in a child friendly environment.
LCI sees each child as an individual maturing at his/her own rate, and it is our goal to value and encourage each child as he/she grows and develops physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. There is much for children to learn and discover in the world around us and with God’s help, we work together to stimulate and challenge children’s interest and curiosity, we accept the challenges and privileges of facilitating a child’s growth and in discovering God’s word as we partner with parents in every aspect of their child’s maturation and development
