Do the children nap?

Absolutely! We believe that children under five years of age need adequate quiet time and/or rest as part of their daily routine. Our programs include quiet time for all our students.

Does the school provide lunch and/or snacks?

Can my child eat breakfast at school?

Students who are enrolled in our Before Care program are allowed to eat their home-brought breakfast from 7:00 AM - 7:45 AM.

How can I communicate with my child’s teacher?

The success of our program is based on establishing a partnership between our parents and staff. Open and frequent communication will help your child have a positive early learning experience. Teachers and Administrators welcome the opportunity to speak with parents. Drop off and pick up can be a busy time for our teachers. Therefore, we encourage you to make an appointment so that undivided attention may be given to you. Teachers will communicate regularly with parents about their child’s progress and milestones being reached through Brightwheel, an app that connects parents and teachers by enabling digital daily reports, pictures, messages, and more.

When are students required to wear a uniform?

From age one. Children participate in various activities throughout the day, some of which are messy or athletic, and play outdoors daily, weather permitting. Because of this, it’s our policy that students must wear their Lakeside Christian Academy shirts from Monday to Friday. Additionally, no open-toed or open-backed shoes are allowed. The most appropriate shoes for participation in school activities are rubber-soled sneakers with socks.
