Mission and Philosophy of Blue Lake Preschool

Blue Lake Preschool is a quality preschool that is dedicated to nurturing and empowering young children to learn and grow in a safe and challenging environment.  We believe in creating a setting for children that will foster positive self-esteem and prepare them for a successful, long-term, educational experience.

Studies continually conclude a consistent routine, quality teachers and lower student-teacher ratios are a strong foundation for providing an enriched classroom environment for our children.  We pride ourselves in hiring teachers who are compassionate, enthusiastic, and dedicated to their role as a professional in early childhood education.  We provide funding for our teachers to take additional college courses and reserve two in-service days where the school closes to prepare for the upcoming school year.  We also close one day each January to meet with you to inform you of your child’s behavior, progress, and social and physical needs.

Blue Lake Preschool is continually rated by Qualistar and you can find those results as well as helpful information on selecting childcare that is right for your family at www.Qualistar.org.
