School Philosophy

Lakeside Presbyterian Children’s Center (LPCC) is dedicated to serving the needs of young children and their families for over 70 years. Under the guidance of qualified teachers, this school will provide an education program which emphasizes growth in all areas – physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual, as a continuous interrelated process.
It is the goal of our staff to help children learn to feel good about being her/himself and to see themselves as a capable person who can develop satisfying relationships with people outside of their own home.
We believe that all children need a loving open environment with channeled activities, guidance and security.
Our main goal is to stimulate the child’s interest, enhance her/his self-esteem, and encourage development of the cognitive process.
