    TULSA, Okla. - Quick Facts:

    • The Little Lighthouse received enough donations to increase its space
    • The increased space means their enrollment capacity grew from 65 to 96
    • A renovation of the old building will increase it to 140

    Community support makes the Little Lighthouse a “one-of-a-kind” school, directors say.

    It was community and foundation support that allowed the school to take real steps to double their enrollment capacity.

    The development center helps special needs children from birth to 6-years-old. It used to be able to house 65 students, but thanks to an 8-year fundraising campaign, the school’s new building can accommodate 96 students.

    When renovations complete on the old building, the school will have more than doubled its capacity, with a total of 140 slots opened.

    The bigger classrooms, extra space and additional tools to help their students, offered in a tuition-free program, made the program notable across the state.

    That notoriety meant the waiting list grew. Directors say they are excited to shrink that list.
