Welcome to The Lighthouse!

Our Mission​ "To provide educational, recreational, cultural, social and economic improvement programs to families to improve the quality of their lives"

 

Founded in 1893: Our Vision Defines Our Direction! We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when everyone works together. That’s why strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that people of every age, income level and background have the opportunity to learn, develop, grow and thrive to be positive contributing members to the community.

The Emerald Foundation focuses on bringing everyone together by Engaging the community and non-profit organizations in a way that will Enrich and Empower Everyone. Thank you for supporting our STEM and E-Sports programs!

The current Covid-19 pandemic may have you wondering if it is safe to send your child to our facility for care. Here are some of the methods we use to enhance our health and safety protocols during this time. 

  • Thermal Scan, Face Masks & Hand Sanitizer: All persons entering the academy must have a thermal scan at the entry door, wear a face mask and must use hand sanitizer upon entering.

  • Health Screening: All children and staff will have a health screening prior to entering the building and their temperature will be taken throughout the day.

  • Social Distancing: Only one family will be permitted in the lobby at a time. Please wait in the designated spot and maintain 6-feet of social distancing.

  • Classroom Stability: Your child’s classroom will be stable in that the same group of children and teachers will be together each day.

  • Facemasks/shields for Kids: We have purchased face masks and shields for children. Each teacher will be required to wear them all day.

  • Staff Preparedness: Staff have been educated on the Covid-19 symptoms as well as preventive measures to ward off the spread of the virus.
