Lakes International Language Academy opens Kinder Prep

Parents now have a language-infused kindergarten readiness option in Forest Lake with Lakes International Language Academy’s Kinder Prep.

Opening this fall for 4-year-olds, Kinder Prep features programming in Spanish, Chinese, and English to spark children’s curiosity and create opportunities for exploration in language, science, math, literacy, the arts, and physical development.

“The curriculum is based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme,” explained Shannon Peterson, assistant director at LILA. “The focus is on the whole child: social, physical, emotional, and academic development.”

Like all LILA staff, Kinder Prep educators have professional training and job experience.

A newly remodeled facility for Kinder Prep, just across the street from the LILA elementary school on SE 11th Avenue, offers a safe and child-friendly learning atmosphere.

Fees for Kinder Prep vary depending on the schedule chosen. Registration details for Kinder Prep and kindergarten 2013-14 classes are available at 651-464-0771 or
