Wonder

At the Lamplighter School, we believe a rigorous education goes hand in hand with a childlike sense of wonder.

Lamplighter’s mission and commitment has always been to educate young children through exploration, play, collaboration, and compassion. To that end, we strive to make our campus a place of wonder. Our playground, with its multiple play areas, soccer field, sport court, “secret” tunnel under the hill, and road for riding trikes, is a perfect place for children to stretch their imagination and indulge their essential need for play. Being outside in nature is important for children to develop a feeling of wonder at the world around them.  Our students greet the farm animals, watch birds, walk to the creek, look for butterflies, and plant gardens. Indoors, our youngest students listen to stories in the media center, and later check out books of their own, gaining a love of reading that teaches them to expand their inner worlds.  From this page, you can learn more about our playground media center, garden, and more.
