My son has attended the Lighthouse Learning and Development Center since September 2015, when he started Junior Kindergarten, and he is currently in Grade 3.
The amazing staff at the Lighthouse have been my son’s biggest advocates and my guiding lights throughout this time, and they have basically become a part of our family. The progress that my son has made in his time at the school has amazed and delighted me. He has gone from a timid 4 year old with limited verbal and social skills to a friendly, talkative gamer and coder who loves math and science and spending time with his friends and teachers. The staff, teachers, and management at Lighthouse have proven time after time that they are committed to ensuring the success of every child at the centre and have been instrumental in helping me and my family develop our own strategies for responding to challenging behaviours and modelling consistent behaviour both in and out of school. I am so, so grateful for the patience, understanding, and creative solutions to problems that the team have demonstrated time and again. I know without a doubt that the staff at the Lighthouse are committed to helping my child achieve his full potential, and that is reflected in his academic progress, the HUGE strides he has made in social and verbal skills, and how much he loves going to school every day.
When the Covid-19 pandemic forced all of us to adapt to new ways of learning and working, Serena and the team at the Lighthouse were adaptive and proactive in setting up remote learning while public schools were still scrambling to figure out what a virtual learning platform would even look like. Throughout this extremely challenging time the staff has continued to pivot, adapt, and explore new ways to accommodate the students and families that rely on them every day while also keeping us informed and looped into ongoing developments.
In short, the team has been nothing short of incredible.
I am so happy I made the decision to enroll my son at the Lighthouse years ago. The impact this school has had on my child’s development simply can’t be overstated, and we are so lucky to have had the opportunity for him to attend the Lighthouse. There really isn’t another school like this one.
