Our model embraces the ‘learn through play’ method, as we believe that play is one of a child’s most natural actions. Our ECE certified teachers strive to support and inspire your children, providing a safe environment for them to lead and direct their own play and to develop their whole self. The ECEs at Lakehill Preschool encourage children to become independent, develop self-control, share with others, gain self-acceptance and self-worth, and develop their small and large motor skills. Our program also guides children in developing their social skills in preparation for school.
