Enrichment Programs

  • Over 50 years of early childhood education


    Beyond having your children in our care, we want to thoughtfully extend your children’s growth throughout the day. Morning enrichment offers an art studio program that cultivates expression and creativity. Afternoon enrichment focuses on fitness-related movement and music to meet the developmental need for gross motor activity. 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 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.  Our Art Studio program has been recognized at the SFUSD Arts Festival at the Asian Art Museum six years running and awarded grants from the Tides Foundation.
