The Early Childhood Center is a safe "home away from home" where students learn, play, and enjoy developmentally appropriate experiences under the guidance of nurturing and talented faculty.
The time flies. One minute your child is learning to walk and the next they are running across a playground. Babbling in the highchair one moment and seated at a worktable writing their name the next. For young children, learning should be joyful and play-based while also preparing them for the learning that awaits. Does that mean all preschool programs are the same and all you need are wooden blocks, crayons, and a playground? Clearly, the answer is no.
Highly-qualified Early Childhood educators are able to create developmentally appropriate learning environments and engaging challenges that will promote social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical growth; nurture school readiness skills; and meet the individual needs of any student. Your child deserves the best possible start, which means finding a warm, engaging educational environment where each child is known and valued—a place where highly-qualified educators will foster a love of learning. For generations of local children, that special place has been Lake Forest Country Day School.
