An early childhood education is an opportunity for young children to learn about their unique skills, abilities and interests. The purpose of the Lakewood Local School District’s preschool is to develop social skills, emotional control, attention/focus, motor fluidity, and language while enhancing curiosity, exploration, and creativity. These essential skills and attitudes are the foundation on which to build academic and personal growth and success.
Our preschool primarily serves children with special needs between ages 3 to 5 years. The classrooms are taught by early childhood intervention specialists. Itinerant services are also part of the continuum of options to serve children with a disability. An early childhood intervention specialist and/or a therapist can provide interventions at a child care center, Head Start, or another site within the Lakewood Local School District boundary. There is no preschool tuition fee for children who have been identified with a disability.
Additionally, we have some spots available for children who are typically developing who are 4 years of age.
If you have concerns about the cost of preschool, please contact us to learn about scholarships available.
