Preschool (K4)


When your preschool (K4) child joins the LCS family, he or she will live, laugh, love and learn. Preschool at Lakeland Christian’s Early Childhood program is developmentally appropriate, which encourages children to grow and mature naturally in every area of life. By the end of the K4 year, the goal is for each child to be prepared socially, emotionally and academically for K5. Each child is considered as an individual, and the faculty meets each where he or she is.

Lakeland Christian School’s Early Childhood faculty members are passionate about their work with the youngest children on campus. These teachers live for the Lord and serve at LCS because they really want to be here! Their love for the Lord overflows as they intentionally model that attribute for the students.

Even at this youngest level, the faculty teaches each subject and activity in the light of God’s Word. The teachers do an amazing job of applying the Scriptures to the young lives in their care.

If you have any questions about our Early Childhood program, feel free to contact Mrs. Luci O’Byrne, Elementary Principal, at or by calling (863) 688-2771.

Preschool (K4) Curriculum


We use the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Bible curriculum. We teach Bible stories featuring both Old and New Testament characters that reinforce character and Christian living.


Teacher-created units help to build number sense. Students learn by playing with numbers in various centers.

Language Arts/Reading:

The Zaner Bloser curriculum introduces and reinforces the correct letter and number formation. K4 teachers use DIG (Discover, Inspire, Grow) and Letter People curriculum. The three main areas of focus are phonemic awareness, rapid recall and letter/sound recognition.

Science and Social Studies:

Lessons in science and social studies are incorporated through the letter of the week and holiday activities.
