  • 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.

Lakeside Academy offers a 1/2 day 3K program for families.

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.
