Enrichment Programs

  • Over 60 years of early childhood education

    Beyond having your children in our care, we want to thoughtfully extend your children’s growth throughout the day. We offer an art studio program that cultivates expression and creativity. We also offer music and movement to meet the developmental need for gross motor activity. In our outdoor space, we offer a garden curriculum where children learn to plant, grow and sometimes even eat fruits and vegetables. Depending on your child’s schedule, s/he will experience these programs as well as the familiar transitions of lunch and/or nap. We have partnered with SF Tots, which provides soccer, basketball and baseball and the JKA/Japan Karate Association/American Federation Institute, which provides martial arts to our students.
  • Art Studio

    Enrichment Program, 4 to 5 years old

    The Art Studio was introduced in 2012 as part of Lakeside’s preschool enrichment program. Here, children explore and engage with different materials and mediums and learn about art history and artists. Often, materials are revisited with new ideas and uses. Most artist-themed units extend over a course of weeks, deepening engagement and learning. Projects are compiled at the end of the school year in student portfolios.

  • Music and Movement

    Enrichment Program, 2.5 to 5 years old

    The Music and Movement program was introduced in 2012 as part of Lakeside’s preschool enrichment program. During Music and Movement time, children participate in different styles of movement and sensory-motor play and games. Often, motor skills and routines are revisited with new additional concepts. Most sensory-motor play activities run quarterly, depending on engagement and learning. Some learned dance routines are presented and/or recorded for families to enjoy.
