Lakewood Christian Preschool
As a parent we know you are taking careful thought on what your child needs and where they will be able to grow, learn and mature emotionally and spiritually. We are proud to introduce you to what makes Lakewood Christian Preschool so unique. We provide…
A safe and loving environment to encourage individual progress.
Meaningful, age appropriate learning activities that help build an “I-can-do-it” attitude and a life long love of learning.
An atmosphere of freedom and flexibility where children can experiment, find solutions and make choices at their own pace.
Readiness skills that lay a foundation for future educational challenges.
Opportunities to help children make sense of the world around them, cooperate with others, and develop confidence in their abilities.
Nutritious snacks and the cultivation of health, good conversation, and a thankful heart.
Bible stories and Christian examples to increase a child’s understanding of God and His love for us.
Two teachers in each classroom of 15 children.
An experienced, well-trained, long-term and professional staff.
To serve the families of our church and community by providing an enrichment program for young children that emphasizes learning through play, a developmentally appropriate curriculum, and a genuine respect for each child’s unique character and individual growth rate. The truths of God’s Word (the foundation of all learning) are taught through Bible stories, guided conversation and by example. Parents are valued as a child’s most important teachers, and parent education is a vital component of our program.
At Lakewood Christian Preschool we believe that children learn best in an environment that is safe and loving, where they can initiate meaningful activities at their own pace supported by their teachers, all in an atmosphere of play. This process of development and learning influences the whole child.
Provide activities that help develop both large (legs, arms, back) and small (fingers, eyes) muscle control. These physical activities build neurological pathways in the brain that are necessary before the child can successfully proceed to the higher levels of formal education.
Provide activities (dramatic play, taking turns, conversation) that help children make sense of the world around them and learn to care for, cooperate and problem solve with others.
Guide and encourage children through activities and situations that help develop confidence, self-help skills and a better understanding of self, family and culture.
Working with each individual child’s strengths and needs, provide activities that promote a life long love of learning and encourage creativity, curiosity, and their emerging skills in literacy, language, investigation and math.
Increasing a child’s understanding of God and His love for them. In simple, age appropriate ways through Bible stories, prayer, the Christian example of the teachers and by teaching character traits (kindness, obedience, forgiveness) this is a daily part of our curriculum.
