Who We Are
LightHouse Kindergarten is an English-language based educational environment for children ages 3 to 6. We offer a holistic approach to our young learners’ education, focusing on the well-being of the whole child – their intellectual growth, social-emotional competences, character development, motor skills, and health.
- We provide optional Dual Language Program in both English and Bulgarian, supporting our children in developing their bilingual and biliterate skills.
- Experienced educators, progressive curriculum, and a rich variety of creative and sports activities, are some of the key elements of our program.
- We are a modern alternative of the traditional Kindergarten implementing best practices of internationally recognized pedagogical approaches.
- Situated in a beautiful green area just
5-minute drive from Business Park Sofia, LightHouse Kindergarten welcomes both international and local students.
Our main curriculum framework blends educational programs from the U.S., Great Britain, Singapore, and Switzerland designed for English language learners. It is thematic, standard-based, and it is aligned with the process model – an open-ended approach that focuses on the results, the process, and the pace of individual learning.
In addition to the English-language based International Program, the Dual Language Program is introduced in the preparatory levels of K5 and K6. It incorporates studies in Bulgarian language according to the national educational standards regulated by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education in the main subject areas.
Our young learners are divided into four separate groups in accordance to their entrance age – K3, K4, K5 and K6.
By providing age-appropriate activities and learning experiences, we aim to support the growth and success of each child in our care. Our teachers are trained to work with specific age groups, so they understand the unique needs and challenges that come with each developmental stage.

We focus on building on children’s literacy and numeracy skills, fostering their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, and preparing them for a successful transition to elementary school.
Children aged 6
We focus on advancing children’s academic skills and school readiness, encouraging their natural curiosity, and helping them to develop a strong sense of
self-awareness and confidence.
