I have only had my children at Little Lights for a short while but from the beginning I was more than impressed. I have had the same babysitter since my daughter was 6months old (she's now 9). When she was unable to watch my children (9 and 7months) I was devastated. Finding good childcare is a hard task. I called and toured several facilities, none of which stood up to Little Lights. Everyone was so welcoming and pleasant, I knew there was no other choice.

After staying home with my daughter the first year of her life, I was very nervous as to where to send her for child care when I returned to work. Everyone I asked had nothing but wonderful things to say about Little Lights! My husband and I couldn't not be more pleased with our decision to send her there. The entire staff is welcoming and truly cares for each and every one of the children there. My daughter now 4, has learned so much while being there and enjoys going each and everyday. This experience has been unmatched and we are forever grateful for each and every one of the staff members there at Little Lights! Hands down the best child care provider in Gloucester!!! Thank you again to our Little Lights family for all that you have and continue to do for each of us!

Little Lights has been an amazing blessing to our family. Our children, now 2 and 4, started at the Center when they were 7 months and 3. The infant room and Ms. Deb are beyond exceptional. They have procedures in place that provide above average care in all areas and give me peace of mind while working. They were able to effectively and thoroughly communicate about our daughter's day through these systems. However, the most invaluable part of our experience with the infant room was how much they valued and loved our daughter. The care and love for our child while in that room was, and continues to be, genuine and sincere. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. Our youngest daughter has since moved to the toddler room, but we continue to be impressed with the care and love she receives.
Our oldest daughter started in the Pre-K3 program and has since moved to Pre-K4. Ms. Anna was wonderful and patient about introducing our daughter to a classroom environment (previously she had only been at home with me). Our daughter learned the obvious things, letters and numbers, but also came home excited about things like volcanoes, nature walks and the paintings she had created. In Mrs. Nicki's class I have continued to see exponential growth. My daughter's problem solving skills and communication skills have increased and I know it is because of the modeling she experiences at school. Overall, I feel that the staff understands the crucial role they play in our children's lives and they are willing to embrace and respond to that opportunity in an overwhelmingly positive way.

My husband and I can not say enough positive remarks about Little Lights! The care they provide is unmatched. As a public school teacher, I value education and training opportunities for care providers and Little Lights goes above and beyond to ensure it's staff is top notch in their field. This high level of qualification is evident in every person you will come across employed with them! As a mother of a child with needs that differ from his typical peers, I will be forever grateful for the guidance they have provided that has contributed to his success in kindergarten. When we first contacted LLCC, we were a family feeling quite lost in how to help our child succeed and they have continued to help us overcome any obstacles. Little Lights has a phenomenal toddler and two year old program as well. We look forward to seeing our youngest thrive as he continues on his LLCC journey. Little Lights is FAMILY oriented and offers many opportunities for family members to see the amazing work being done to lead every child to success! We are thrilled with our experience with Little Lights!

It is easy for me and my hisband to go to work everyday knowing my kids are at Little Lights. They care so much about their students and families. They go above and beyond to make sure their students are taken care of. I only wish we would have started sooner.

My wife teaches pre-K4 at Little Lights and our two daughters, ages 4.5 and 1.5, have both attended Little Lights for over a year. The infant room was perfect for our youngest daughter. Ms. Deb takes care of all of the children like they are one of her own. Our oldest attended pre-K3 and pre-K4 at Little Lights. Both Ms. Anna and Ms. Nicki taught her so much while giving her independence to explore new subjects on her own. She loves going to school every day. I couldn't recommend another pre-K or day care in Gloucester County more!

If you are looking for a place that will truly give you all around care, with no worries, this is the place. Yes Moms, I understand that it is a difficult concept to grasp - the idea of placing your child in the care of another and not worrying about them. I promise it is true! We started at Little Lights after having my son cared for by his grandmother for the first 3.5 years of his life. I was terrified of placing him in a day care setting. The staff at Little Lights could not have been more understanding and accommodating to my obsessive phone calls and questions. My son thrived at Little Lights, making friends that he is still close with. He came out of their preschool program reading chapter books and tested out as the top reader in his grade by the time he entered First Grade. The Summer Program at Little Lights helped ensure he didn't suffer any "summer setback", the staff keeps the children constantly engaged and learning.

When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, we knew exactly where we would bring her for care. While I had not previously experienced infant care at Little Lights, I was confident that, based on what I had signed with my 3 year old, she would receive the best care I could find.

I would recommend Little Lights Childcare Center to any parent looking for a place where their child will be loved as family.

Little Lights Day care center is a fantastic option for child care. My son has been going to Little Lights for 3 years now and he looks forward to school each and everyday. The staff is kind, caring, and very knowledgeable on every child's needs. As a military family having my son in a secure facility gives us the piece of mind in today's complex society. The atmosphere is clean and superb for learning life long skills. If your looking for an affordable, clean, loving, caring, and educational experience Little Lights is your place!

Little Lights has been a blessing to our family. My oldest daughter, Mylah, began in September 2010 and completed the Preschool program. My youngest daughter, Makayla, is currently in the 4 year old Preschool program. The curriculum and awesome teachers that Little Lights uses has well prepared my daughters for entering Elementary school. The staff is always friendly and truly cares about your children. I would recommend Little Lights to anyone that wants piece of mind knowing that their child is safe, having fun, and learning all day long!

We have known the All Star Team at Little Lights for many years! We started our daughter there for their Pre-K program and we're beyond pleased with the teachings and care our daughter received to help get her ready for Kindergarten! We loved them so much we decided to start our 2 year old son early a few days a week. Little Lights has an incredible environment for any age! Our family proudly recommends Little Lights to anyone looking for daycare.

Our little girl Kaylee has been attending Little Lights for a little over a year now. She started in the toddler class and has moved up to the 2 year old class. We have had a great experience with the teachers and other staff. Whenever I call to check on her they always make me feel reassured. I always know that my child is being cared for well. Kaylee has also learned a lot there and continues to grow in many aspects every day. They find recess very important which I love - if they can't go outdoors they go to the gym.
The teacher that had Kaylee in the toddler class actually volunteered to potty train a majority of the class (with parental consent). Kaylee was very successful with this and I will be forever grateful for that! Potty training is probably not something that parents should expect out of Little Lights because that will depend on the teacher but that goes to show how dedicated the teachers are to the children there.

We've been a Little Lights family since July 2015. As a parent of a child with special needs and challenges, the attentiveness and initiative the staff took went above and beyond to help our family prepare him for Kindergarten, socially, emotionally and academically. Our daughter loves the activities planned for school age kids and connects well with the staff. We couldn't be happier. The love and attention Little Lights shows to its children, consistently, patiently, day after day, is unmatched!

My son has attended Little Lights since he was an infant, he is kow 3. We have had such a wonderful experience with Little Lights. Our son has grown and learned so much from his teachers. The people at Little Lights truly care for the children they work with and are dedicated to teaching them. We are truly blessed to have picked such a wonderful place to care and teach our child.

My daughter (now pre-K 4) has attended Little Lights for about a year and a half. She absolutely adores her teachers (present and former) and staff. She has grown so much academically, as well as socially, since she started and classmates have quickly become friends. The Christian perspective on the education that's provided is a sweet bonus. I'm thankful we chose LLCC for our daycare/preschool needs.

Little lights is great!!! Not only is it the safest daycare in the area but it is also the most patient.
Despite changing work schedules and pulling the kids out on different occasions when family has moved to help care for them, little lights is also so happy to welcome us back. We have been with little lights since my daughter was 6 weeks old! She is now 5! My son is now 8!...They are always accepting of any feedback you bring them and they make a great environment for the kids...Little Lights is the GO TO for day care!!!

My husband and I have different schedules and we were having a difficult time finding a part time place for our daughter to go. From the beginning, Little Lights has been such a blessing! They go above and beyond to make sure our daughter is cared for and loved. It is always hard as a mom to drop your infant at daycare, but Ms. Debbie was amazing and went above and beyond to help transition us all. The toddler room has been a blessing too, and I feel like Little Lights is a part of our family! As a Gloucester County teacher, I also highly recommend the preschool program! It is truly a great place!

The staff at Little Lights are wonderful! I can't say enough about how loving they are toward the children. The preschool class teachers are very structured and my child is learning so much! I know he will be more than prepared for Kindergarten.
