Our Mission:
Lakeside Academy, in partnership with The Hartland Lakeside School District Community Education Program and dedicated early childhood professionals, build a foundation for lifelong learning and success.  This is done by providing high-quality early learning programs for children and families within the district and the surrounding community.

In Support of our Mission, Lakeside Academy follows the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards and believes in the Guiding Principles listed below as a part of our philosophy:

  • All children are capable and competent.  
  • Early relationships matter.
  • A child’s early learning and development is multidimensional.
  • Expectations for children must be guided by knowledge of child growth and development.
  • Children are individuals who develop at various rates.
  • Children are members of cultural groups that share developmental patterns.
  • Children exhibit a range of skills and competencies within any domain of development.
  • Children learn through play and active exploration of their environment.
  • Parents are children’s primary and most important caregivers and educators

Due to low enrollment (COVID-19) the 3K Preschool Program located at Hartland North, an alternative option to Lakeside Academy, will not be offered at this time.  Contact Stacy Krimmer at skrimmer@hartlake.org if you are interested in learning more about Lakeside Academy offerings.

Our Vision:
To build long-term relationships with the families and students within our community, at an early age, providing them with early educational options that will ensure lifelong learning through play and social-emotional development.

Our Philosophy:
Lakeside Academy was established for the expressed purpose of providing quality early education and childcare to young children in our school community, building a strong foundation around social and emotional well being and fostering the love of learning at an early age through inquiry and play as they begin their educational journey.

All children are given the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of individual differences as they experience life in the classroom, learning through play together.

Areas of developmental learning include gross and fine motor, speech and language, social interaction, self-care skills, creative expression, and intellectual stimulation. The program is geared to help each child develop to his/her highest potential.

We want all children to develop an enthusiastic attitude towards learning that will stay with them for the rest of their lives . Motivated by our desire to help all children achieve their maximum potential, we will provide a safe, secure, nurturing, stimulating and developmentally appropriate environment that is responsive to the needs of every child.
