September 09, 2022

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – Children’s Lighthouse of Winter Garden, the area’s premier early learning school, was recently recognized by local community members as the top Preschool in Orlando. 

Orlando Magazine’s yearly “Best of ORL” is an opportunity for community members to make their voices heard and decide which businesses and organizations they feel are best in the area. Categories range from Fun & Leisure to Health & Beauty, and Children’s Lighthouse was one of the top three on their Best Preschool list in the Kids & Pets category. 

“We’re extremely honored to have been recognized with this award,” said Deanna Gustafson, Director of Children’s Lighthouse Winter Garden. “We work hard every day to ensure each student is well cared for in a safe environment, and this award has shown how all that work has paid off. Not only that, but it’s a blessing to know that the surrounding community loves us as much as we love being a part of it.”

The mission of Children’s Lighthouse is to give to give children a safe, loving place to learn, make friends, and build confidence. Children’s Lighthouse does this by partnering with parents to develop children through three age-appropriate curriculums designed with specific needs of children in mind. Additionally, franchisees across the network like Gustafson are actively involved with their local communities and regularly give back through volunteering, donations and more.
