At Lakeside Early Learning, we believe that children grow and thrive in close and dependable relationships that provide love and nurturance, security, responsive interactions, and encouragement for exploration.

We provide a faith-based, developmentally appropriate program designed to support families and to help your child develop a strong sense of self-awareness and spirituality, build healthy relationships with others, and participate and belong to a community. Emphasis is placed on healthy attachment, self-regulation, social interactions, and developmental skill competencies. The curriculum has been carefully selected to include dramatic and imaginative play, creative thinking, problem solving, self-sufficiency, and life skills.

Whether you’re looking for a preschool or toddler care, you’ll find a welcoming environment in which children are engaged in meaningful activities in a classroom where they are valued by their teachers and caregivers as unique and special children of God.
