The early years of elementary school are an exciting time for your child. During these years, your child will acquire the skills and learning habits that form the foundation of a lifetime of learning. -- Pete Moore, Head of Lower School
Best friends. Math facts. A loose tooth. Chapter books. The early years of elementary school are an exciting time for your child. During these years, you want your child to acquire the skills and learning habits that establish a strong academic foundation.
At Lake Forest Country Day School, the Lower School curriculum allows each student the opportunity to discover his or her physical, creative, social, and academic strengths. Our experienced faculty is dedicated to high academic standards and to providing the individual attention that each child needs to fulfill his or her potential. We see social and academic skills as inextrictably linked, so we strive to create a respectful, safe atmosphere where students can explore personal interests and take responsible risks while developing academic skills and knowledge.
Small class sizes, individual attention and differentiated instructional strategies ensure that each child has the opportunity to fulfill his or her potential. Teachers partner with parents to support students' budding independence and help them identify how they learn best.
