Kinder Prep: Preschool For 3 - & 4 -Year-Olds With Fun Language, Academic, And Social Learning For Kindergarten Readiness
Lakes International Language Academy offers a pre-kindergarten program for children who are three or four years old on September 1 of the school year. Guided by LILA’s award-winning global focus, Kinder Prep is a fee-based, preschool experience for 3-year-olds and a year-before-kindergarten experience for 4-year-olds that prepares all children to enter kindergarten with the readiness and skills necessary for a successful academic career.
DEC 2018 UPDATE:
In January 2019, LILA will offer two new sections of Kinder Prep. The 2.5 hour classes will be taught in English, with an introduction to both Mandarin and Spanish.
- The morning session (9:00 - 11:30 am) is a mixed age class for 3 - 5 year olds.
- The afternoon session (12:15 - 2:45 pm) is planned for 4 - 5 year olds enrolling in kindergarten next fall.
In Kinder Prep preschool, learning takes place through play and developmentally age-appropriate activities. See a sample of our daily schedule.
As an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme school, LILA’s Kinder Prep focuses on the whole child: his or her social, physical, emotional, and academic development. Programming in Spanish, Chinese, and English will spark the children’s curiosity and create opportunities for exploration in language, science, math, literacy, the arts, and physical development.
Kinder Prep staff members are skilled professionals who respect and enjoy working with preschool children. They are required to have a combination of professional training and job experience, enabling them to understand the developmental and emotional needs of children.
