Our Mission

Our goal is to offer a quality learning experience within a group setting while respecting and encouraging individual differences and learning styles. We strive to meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of each child at his/her own development level. Our program has stimulating, hands-on and age appropriate activities that introduce and develop preschool skills and enhance each child’s creativity and sense of discovery.

For more than 30 years Lamplighter Preschool has been watching over the children of Napanee.

As a cooperative, not for profit based organization our priority has always been with the children we care for.


Our Vision

Our Vision is this: We believe that each child and parent is unique. Our inclusive program supports family interests and values in raising happy, healthy, and confident children. Our staff are committed to nurturing and guiding children to their highest potential by enabling them to explore freely in a safe, supportive, engaging and caring learning environment.

Here at Lamplighter, we strive to meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of each child enrolled, no matter what gender, race, culture, developmental or behavioral needs they may have.


Our Accessibility

Lamplighter Preschool welcomes all children, without discrimination, and strives to meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of each child, regardless of race and culture, developmental or behavioural needs. We are committed to working with families, and any resource teachers and support workers, to help determine individual goals for each child and implement them into our program.


Our Philosophy 

Our Vision Statement, Mission Statement, and Inclusion and Accessibility Statement provide the basis for the overall philosophy that directs the operation of Lamplighter Preschool. Each child’s individuality and sense of security are important to us. Ties between the staff and children become warm and trusting.
