Preschool Programs

As the largest nature-based preschool in the region, the Center’s programming is designed to build on children’s inherent curiosity.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s renowned preschool programs serve children ages one to six each year through classes in three specially designed classrooms, where children participate in hands-on, age-appropriate activities to support social, physical and academic development. The surrounding 100-acre parkland and access to Lake Erie serve as an extended outdoor classroom, making the Center uniquely positioned to influence the next generation’s understanding of local wildlife and conservation efforts.

In all of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s preschool programs, highly skilled instructors integrate Ohio Early Learning Standards such as science, math, literacy and the arts into fun learning experiences while fostering cooperative learning and social competence. The result is transformative: the Center fosters a lifelong appreciation for the natural world.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s preschool programs are designed to be taken in combination with each other as a customized preschool or as a complement to traditional preschool. To discuss the best fit for your child, please contact Preschool Coordinator Teece Lester at 440-871-2900 x214 or teece@lensc.org.
