A learning experience that nurtures and inspires
At Lakeland Christian School, we implement a program that engages kindergartners while setting a solid foundation for early learning concepts. Foundational academic curriculum and special area classes have thoughtfully-designed instructional lessons where God’s Word is applied.
Foundational Academic Subjects
Your child will learn fundamental subjects such as Bible, reading/phonics, math, science, and social studies. Every subject is taught with a blend of activities meant to target different modes of acquiring knowledge — through reading in the literacy center, using hands-on activities to learn number sense, working on a science project, and more.
Enriching Specials and Events
During the afternoons, kindergarten students enjoy a variety of special area classes, including art,STEAM, music, PE, and library. Your child will have the opportunity to branch out and explore specific interests while learning the foundations of these special subjects. There are also exciting events for kindergartners, including the 100th Day Celebration, Mother’s Day Tea, guest readers, Grandparent’s Day, monthly themed centers, Nursery Rhyme Parade, and many others!
Building Character Education
Daily Bible class, weekly chapel, and teachers who model Christ-centered values all cultivate our students’ spiritual and character growth.
As parents, safety is at the top of your mind. LCS is committed to the safety and preparedness of its students, staff and its visitors. We have many security measures in place, which include locked doors, secured perimeter, secure check-in system for all visitors and a school resource officer. Emotional safety is also a priority — teachers encourage a culture of respect, kindness, and caring for others.

“Teaching has impacted me in more ways than I can count. I have been entrusted with children created uniquely by God and am called to love them as His image bearers and teach them from a distinctly Christian perspective. I have to rely on God and his grace to help me with this daily, so my walk with Him has grown. I’ve also been impacted by the students themselves. They all have a very special place in my heart.”
