Mathematics: Math is seen as another language. We could call the subject “numeracy” in keeping with “literacy”, which may more accurately reflect our understanding of the subject. Children need practice in mathematics in order to build confidence, and they often do best when the approach to the subject allows them to grow their sense of number over time. A “spiral curriculum”, one that keeps returning to certain basic concepts while at the same time pushing outward, meets the needs of most children. We work with math standards established by the National Council of Mathematics and draw our resources from the Miquon Math Program, Bridges Mathematics Curriculum, Math Their Way and Marilyn Burns material.

Home / Admissions
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 preschool 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 our online application 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,
