After-School Program

During the hours immediately following school, the Lighthouse offers a safe environment for children in grades 1-6. Creative and relational activities combine study and play in ways that enrich the heart and mind. Each day includes devotions, exercise, a snack, academic support and enrichment opportunities.

We strive to provide experiences that empower students for success in all aspects of life. The Lighthouse is a 5-star rated child-care program licensed through the state of Ohio.

Weekly lessons include: Robotics, Gardening, Zumba, Art, Business Builders Club, Ceramics, Vocational Awareness, Mindfulness, and Pastry Decorating.

With such a myriad of experiences rooted in the Lighthouse’s vision of helping students unpack their God-given giftedness, our aim is to empower children to succeed in and out of the classroom; to reach for a new future and to better use their gifts to be a blessing to the world around them.

To register your child for the After-School Program, you need to first fill out the general registration form which makes your child eligible to attend.

The second part of the registration is filling out the Title 20 paperwork to see if you are eligible for the state of Ohio to cover the After School Program participation fees. Eligibility is income-based if you are working; full-time students also qualify. If you are not eligible then you will be asked to pay a monthly fee based upon what you feel you can afford.

The first month’s participation fee or the Title 20 paperwork is required to secure your child’s spot in the program. 

Please note that across all Lighthouse  programming, spots are reserved first for children who live inside the Lighthouse neighborhood (within 10 blocks of the Lighthouse). If spots remain open or unfilled, the Lighthouse will open spots up to to students and families who live outside of that 10-block radius. A more complete explanation of how this works will be emailed to you once your child is registered or you can reach out to Tasha McClain via the contact info given below with that or any other questions you may have.
