Laker Playgroup

For children ages 18 months to 3 years old and a caregiver.
All playgroup activities are based on our Reggio Emilia educational philosophy, which emphasizes hands-on discovery and exploration in a supportive and enriching environment. Nature exploration, baking and other hands-on experiences are complemented with lessons taught by ULS Spanish, art and music teachers. Laker Playgroup is a stepping-stone that prepares your child for the JK3 experience.
