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.

Differences in Our Families

Being Engineers

Theme week was a success because the children had so much fun with this theme.  They would check the chart to see what theme comes next and they would tell their peers.  We had the school age children on Tuesday due to Voting.  We went on a field trip to the library on Wednesday and…
