Mission Statement

Utilizing a play based curriculum, students will develop a strong foundation for high achievement in future educational experiences. Students emerging from this program will demonstrate kindergarten readiness in social, emotional and academic areas.


Cambridge Lakes Preschool utilizes the High Scope philosophy to implement the Core Knowledge Sequence. High Scope promotes a Plan-Do-Review approach to learning in which students select the activities that they will participate in each day during Work Time. The Core Knowledge Sequence, developed by E.D. Hirsch, is a rigorous curriculum that provides children opportunities for higher level thinking. Core Knowledge is the primary resource for Cambridge Lakes Charter School ensuring your child a seamless transition to kindergarten.
