Philosophy

 Here at Little Lakers Academy we create an environment for children which is safe, friendly, and nurturing. Our experienced teaching staff embraces the view that each child is a unique person with different social, physical, and intellectual development. Teachers manifest their respect for children by encouraging them to think for themselves, to make decisions, to work towards their own solutions, and express their own ideas and feelings. We recognize and foster an active partnership between home and school.
