Join us for Lighthouse Preschool Classes begin September 14th!
Our Lighthouse Preschool is located in our downtown Olympia center and features developmentally-based kindergarten readiness activities. Included in all classes: circle time with stories, music and movement, ongoing art activities, snack time, a science and discovery area, large muscle activities and a dramatic play area. We hope you'll come by to check it out.
We operate in two locations, offering developmentally appropriate curriculum to children ages four weeks to kindergarten. The Downtown Center, located in the historic old Fire Station at the corner of State and Capitol, shares the building with the Family Support Center. The Westside Center, located on McPhee Road near Capital Medical Center, has a wonderful rural feel to it with huge play areas.
