At Candlelight, we believe that small class sizes, with extra attention to each individual student, is imperative in a learning environment.
Candlelight prides itself on its committed, professional and truly caring faculty.
Our staff are always accessible and willing to keep communications open between student, school and parent.
Candlelight is a project based learning center where students learn from their teachers, as well as from each other.
The multi-age classroom approach provides the climate for each child to grow at their own individual pace.
