As my wife and I were first thinking about preschool for our two boys, we both knew that we wanted their first schooling experiences to be positive, joyful and enriching. We had heard great things about the Lake School but were doubtful that we could afford the tuition. We are thrilled and grateful for the scholarship, which has allowed us to send our boys to a school that has exceeded our expectations. The facilities and the curriculum are great, but for us, I think the most notable thing is the teachers. When our boys talk about their teachers, it is obvious that they love and admire them. I know being a preschool teacher is very hard work (I actually taught preschool for about 4 years), and I feel so lucky that our boys are able to have such great, caring teachers for their first classroom experiences.

"As a young family, who moved to Bay Area from a different country, we highly appreciate every way the local community supports us. The Lake School scholarship allowed our son to keep learning new skills, socializing and playing with his friends longer hours, which will send him off to a great start at Kindergarten next year!I just can't stop thanking The Lake School community!"
