PRESCHOOL

At Lakeside Christian Academy, we believe that home and school should work together to help students grow to honor and glorify God in their lives in cultivating appropriate decision making in all areas of their life.  Our goal in preschool is to prepare each student academically and socially for Kindergarten.  Lakeside Christian Academy’s Preschool is STARS rated which is a part of our dedication to the nurturing of all students.

 

CURriculum overview

The core curriculum is comprised of Bible, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, and Vocabulary.
