After Flance Early Learning Center's successful opening in June 2014, LUME Institute has been supporting its growth and development. 

LUME evolved from the values, philosophy, and methodologies embodied by University City Children's Center. LUME Institute offers systemic and comprehensive approaches to early childhood education that engage, impact, and transform communities. We are dedicated to promoting innovative thinking, exploration, and knowledge sharing, while developing methodologies that deepen understanding of how children learn and grow.

All children are prepared for life.

We believe the power to change society lies in changing the way young children are taught.

We transform the way families, educators, and communities inspire young children to learn, grow, and thrive.

Our approach to nurturing children through creativity, psychodynamics, literacy, empathy, compassion and inclusiveness is based on innovation, insight, and sound theory. Modeling our methodologies introduces teachers, administrators, families, and other stakeholders to an integrative program that is transforming early childhood education.

LUME will become the catalyst for individuals who think, research, develop, enhance, and replicate early childhood concepts in their respective centers and broader communities.
