At Lakeview Child Center, we introduce children to the joy of learning within a framework that places equal emphasis on intellectual curiosity and social responsibility. Young children acquire skills in a predictable sequence and thrive when learning at their own pace, according to their own temperament.
Lakeview uses the Creative Curriculum to stimulate each child’s sense of exploration and discovery.
The Creative Curriculum was introduced in 1978 and has evolved as we understand the value of helping teachers implement developmentally appropriate practices. With a firm foundation in research that addresses academic content, the curriculum holds programs accountable for demonstrating positive learning outcomes.
Offering a balance between applied general knowledge of child development and specific knowledge gained from relationships formed with each child and family, the Creative Curriculum weaves content learning into everyday experiences to ensure children’s success.
Our teachers prepare exciting, age-appropriate and individualized activities to help children develop a healthy self concept and a feeling of accomplishment. Classroom planning focuses on physical, cognitive, language and personal-social skills.
Through observation, we work to develop educational plans tailored to the needs of each child. The information gathered during observation is shared with families through progress reports and conferences.
