Lumin Education Breaks Ground in Bachman Lake

DALLAS – Lumin Education breaks ground on what will be the Bachman Lake Together Family Center north of Bachman Lake.

The property will house a 20,000 square foot facility, which will have seven early childhood classrooms, offices, home-visiting space and a multi-purpose room for community events.

“This is a symbolic moment in the life of this community,” said Terry Ford, Executive Director of Lumin Education. “We are thrilled to host these programs on this property and to be part of this inspiring initiative.”

Since 2009, Lumin Education, along with AVANCE Dallas, Catholic Charities and The Concilio have served more than 13,000 children and families in the Bachman Lake area with the support of the Zero to Five Funders Collaborative.

“The families of Bachman Lake show the hard work, commitment and the desire they have to create better pathways for their families,” said Jerry Hawkins, Project Director for the Zero to Five Funders Collaborative.

Bachman Lake Together Family Center will bring resources to help parents support their children’s development together under one roof. Families will have access to coordinated early learning experiences and parent engagement programming, all from the same experienced providers they know and trust from their neighborhood.

The grand opening event for the Family Center will be November 19, 2015.

The event was attended by Councilman Adam Medrano, DISD Board Trustee Miguel Solis, local DISD principals, philanthropic supporters, members of the Zero to Five Funders Collaborative and the Bachman Lake community.

First Day of School (PHOTO GALLERY)

The first day of school is always  full of excitement and wonder.  Seeing old friends, meeting new ones and getting back to learning are something students look forward to all summer.

Tom Loew, Director of Student Services – and former School Director of Lumin Lindsley Park – shared something a student told him once.  The student said, “The weekends are too long.”

That’s the kind of excitement the Montessori environment fosters and it’s exactly why children are ready to get back in the classrooms, because if they think the weekends are too long, imagine how long summer must feel.

Below is a photo gallery of some Lumin students on the first day of school.
