About Us:

Lakefront Children's Academy was recognized as one of the top 100 child care centers in the country by Child Care Business Publication. Lakefront Children's Academy is both City and State Licensed and our staff attend regular training seminars to keep current on the latest issues in Early Childhood Education.

Within a safe environment, each child will be stimulated to explore, make choices and develop age appropriate skills. Lakefront Children's Academy strives to offer children a foundation for the development of social skills, self confidence, motivation and cognition.

Our Philosophy:

We at Lakefront Children's Academy believe that every child can grow to contribute positively to our society as adults. In keeping with this philosophy, it is the goal of Lakefront Children's Academy to provide child care programs which address the individual needs of its clientele-involving all areas of behavior (cognitive, emotional, physical and social). 

Our Mission:
The primary objective of our school is to help your child develop a positive attitude toward his / herself and toward everything associated with learning. It is not our goal to rush young children into acquiring academic knowledge. Each child is gently guided into learning what he/she can do to accept themselves and to take pride in and derive satisfaction from personal achievements.

Education Programs:

Our curriculum consists of a sequence of directed activities designed to help children understand certain physical, emotional, and intellectual principles. Our academic programs for ages 2-6 years are geared toward stimulating the development of skills and communication, providing a growing awareness of sizes, shapes, and colors, cultivating manipulative skills and increasing physical development.
