Our Child Care Programs & Philosophy

At Lakefront Children's Academy, we believe that every child can grow to contribute positively to our society. In keeping with this philosophy, it is our goal to provide child care programs which address the individual needs of our young students—including cognitive, emotional, physical, and social behaviors. Our daycare, nursery school, and kindergarten programs are planned, staffed, and directed in a manner which enables each child to be given proper guidance and supervision while they actively engage in required experience-enhancing activities. Within a safe environment, every child is stimulated and encouraged to explore, make choices, and develop age appropriate skills that include a collective balance of active and quiet activities.

Our early childhood, preschool, and kindergarten programs are for children ages 2-6 and include the following programs:
