Dear Preschool Families,
I hope this finds everyone doing well. If you had told me 5 months ago I would be writing this letter, I would not have believed it. How our lives have changed.

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Lakewood Preschool will not be opening in September. With all the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and with so many of our students not returning this fall, myself along with the preschool board have determined it would not be financially feasible for the preschool to remain open at this time.
However, there was interest by many parents to possibly be ready to send students in January. So we will be reevaluating plans to reopen in January for our second semester. Your child will remain enrolled at Lakewood unless you let us know otherwise.

In the meantime, we want to make sure we are communicating with all of our enrolled students and families. I will be meeting with our teachers to put a plan in place to keep in touch with our students on a weekly or biweekly basis. Once we have a plan finalized, you will receive more information.
If you chose to put your refund from last year toward this year or have paid anything toward fall semester, you will receive a check in the mail refunding your money.

I thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please call or email the preschool.

Lakewood Preschool 
Where your child's love of learning begins!

​Lakewood Preschool provides a safe and caring environment for our students.  We make learning fun through art, music, gym, cooking, stories, singing, learning centers, and hands-on activities.  We help foster the children to have positive self-esteem and develop the basic skills for successful social interaction with their peers and adults. We focus on general preparation for kindergarten readiness skills which include: learning colors, numbers, letters, rhyming, opposites, sequencing, using scissors, writing their name along with many other skills. Please see our philosophy page for more details.
