Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All children receive one on one time with the teacher. If there are children who seem to be behind, the teacher will spend extra one on one time with that child. The teacher will also send additional work home for parent reinforcement.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Lakeview Development Center is dedicated to the development of young minds. Our principle goal is to produce highly esteemed students who grow into life-long learners. We provide an academic based curriculum, safe & sanitized environment, and an array of age approriate materials which allow children to explore and learn freely. Caring, capable instructors help guide the exploratory process to ensure proper development and discipline. Since preschool is a child's first impression of formal education, it is our aim to make that impression a positive, exciting and memorable experience!
