Older 5- and 6-year-olds seeking additional care, education and socialization prior to entering kindergarten can join us in our Pre-K2 classroom, where we build upon the Pre-K classroom curriculum.

We develop your child’s readiness opportunities in literacy, math, science, social studies, health and safety, art, and music. Our classrooms use self-directed time in the day to allow children to choose their own activities to explore. In particular, we’ll focus on alphabet and number recognition and awareness; phone number, address, and birthdate memorization; writing, visual and auditory skills; as well as concepts and word usage, such as opposite and rhyming words.

In addition, this classroom is home to a 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pre-K class option, which offers the same high-quality education and care for which Lakewood Child Care Center’s full-day class is known; its schedule simply is adjusted for those families who do not require before- and after-care. In addition, the class will follow Lakewood City Schools’ annual calendar with the same holiday schedules.

To provide a customized and caring educational experience for children, the class’s maximum capacity will be 10 students. Children must be at least 4 years old by Sept. 30.
