Shining Lights Early Childhood Center ® 1720 Springdale Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003


Shining Lights is an early childhood education center in Cherry Hill, NJ. As you visit our web site, you will get a glimpse into Shining Lights. The facilities, the curriculum, and the teachers are all a part of who we are and what we do. What you may not be able to picture is the level of commitment and quality of care that we give to each child in our center. We believe that children are created by God, in His image. To be able to care for these children is a responsibility that we do not take lightly. We will do our best to ensure that your child, along with each child in our center, is able to learn, grow and be cared for in a safe, secure, loving environment. 

Education is a lifelong process.  Our capacity to think, explore, discover, acquire new skills and learn never diminishes.  As teachers we need to use children's natural desire to learn as an opportunity to begin the process of formal education.  Education should be viewed as a natural outgrowth of our desire to learn, thus motivating children to become life-long learners.
