School Philosophy

Lakeside Presbyterian Children’s Center is a church-sponsored childcare program dedicated to serving children and their families in the area for almost 60 years.  With this established commitment to children we continue to provide an educational program that considers all the developmental needs of your child in a loving, open environment with planned activities, guidance and security.  Our main goal is to stimulate your child’s interest; enhance their self-esteem; and encourage their development in all aspects of their growth – physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual.


School Program & Staff
