I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Would give zero stars if I could. As a former employee who brought my son here I would not recommend bringing your kids here. The owner only cares about money and doesn't put the kids first. All the children's toys are broken and old and been there since the previous owner. Children's toliets have gone unfixed for months, center needs maintenance that the owner refuses to do, toddlers have no playground just a bunch of random broken outdoor toys, the infant changing table pad is duct tapped because the owner wouldn't buy a new one. And the children have only have cereal for breakfast and just a couple crackers for snack.

I do not recommend this daycare/preschool for any child. My son went there for a week and two days. Every day I picked him up he had dirt all over his face, running nose, was really thirsty, and often had a full diaper. He was obviously not taken care of at all. DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD HERE! RUN AWAY! My son also expressed a strong desire to never go back to there again.

We absolutely love Lighthouse Learning!! The teachers are very well trained. The environment is very nuturing and caring. I have 2 children that go there. The staff is very friendly. My children come home happy everyday and tell us of all they learned.
