The Lake and Park School accepts applications for children applying to preschool through fifth grade. There is a half day, nine to noon, preschool option, as well as a full day option, depending on family wishes and developmental needs of the child.  Children may apply to the half day preschool who will be at least three by September 30th of their enrolling year. (Four year old’s are encouraged to apply for the half day as well.)  Children may apply for the full day Pre-K option who will be five by December 31st of their enrolling year.


We provide an environment in which we meet the needs of each child. Our multi-age approach allows us to individualize for children in many ways while placing them in a classroom setting of peers. Enrollment decisions are based on an application completed by the parent, and input from current teachers. We also take the opportunity to spend time with each child during a school visit. The school does not administer or require testing for admission.

Please use Ravenna to apply to the school. There is a fee of 75.00 per application.  


Upon submitting an application, you will receive a confirmation via email. Contact Eileen Hynes,

Director of Admissions at any time during the year at 206.721.3480 or at
