Our conveniently located, secure facility offers a warm, creative, fun-filled environment in our classrooms and in the three large playground areas. 

Our team of teachers serve as facilitators of learning and provide a wide array of experiences for the children. Given those experiences, children are given the opportunity to:

Lakeside Lutheran Preschool's programs are based on the knowledge that a child's early years are ones of phenomenal development. Our chosen curriculum--Creative Curriculum--focuses on four key areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. Our qualified, loving and dedicated staff strive to create an atmosphere that nurtures growth in all these areas.


We believe children benefit when school and family work together to promote their child's learning and care. The preschool is an integral part of our congregation's ministry to young children and their families.


Lakeside offers one of the best Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) programs in Sarasota County. We proudly graduate many bright young stars and future leaders. Every year, we host a graduation ceremony where children and families may gather to celebrate their rising-to-kindergarten stars!
