Meeting the Need for Childcare and Pre-School Education for  Eighteen Years serving the Working Families of Key West and the Lower Keys!

Welcome to Lighthouse Christian Academy

Lighthouse Christian Academy is here as a lighthouse to the working families of Key West and the Lower Florida Keys. Child care is obviously an important choice. Our biggest desire is that the child development that’s available here from infant to Pre-K, is a true educational experience.

Everything we do is with excellence, especially as research has proven the best investment for our community is with our children in early childhood education.   We continue to refine our program to excel in the care and education provided to each individual child. Quality is our requirement of ourselves and we maintain the highest professional standards.

When we began, Lighthouse Christian Academy’s leaders chose to voluntarily become state certified (License # C16MO0014). We have several certified teachers on staff and stand ready to answer any further questions you may have. Perhaps your question is answered on one of our pages listed on the right.

Early Childhood Education Is Important….

There has been a lot said about starting our children early in education.  Even basics like creative play and interaction with others is often best learned in a school environment.“The wisest possible path to genuine public education ‘reform’ is this: Invest early to give children the best possible start in school and in life.” ~ Jerry Scarborough, Superintendent of Schools of Suwannee County, Florida
