How will I communicate with my child’s teacher?

You will find out in August the name of your child’s teacher. Each teacher has her own system of getting in touch either through texts, e-mails, phone calls. Your child will have a folder to stay in their backpack that will go home and back to school each day. Parents/Teachers may communicate through the folder.

 

What supplies does my child need for school?

Toddlers to two year olds will need a clear back pack, large enough to carry a folder. We will have some for sale at the parent orientation. Each child, MDO and Kindergarten needs a change of clothes with his or her name clearly marked. 3K and 4K using late care needs a nap mat – should be all one piece – pillow/blanket/mat

 

What specials does Lakeside offer?

Toddlers – 4K will go to Bible and Music each week. Twos – 4K will have PE, and 3K and 4K will have computer. There are a variety of “after school” activities by contract groups. These groups are paid by you, but are housed at Lakeside. Some we have had in the past are: Tumblebus, art, Soccer Shots, TOT, and Dance.
