Lakeside Early Advantage

LEAPP operates on regular school days during a typical 37 week school year.  Wrap-around CARE is available for students enrolled at Marilla tuition-based preschool classes at an additional charge. Non-School vacation camps are available, (at an additional cost) to all students enrolled in the licensed LEAPP classes; Traditional English (3-5-year-olds), Spanish-Enriched (3-5-year-olds), and State-funded Preschool (3-5-year-olds.)  LEAPP offers secure environments under the careful guidance of our experienced, licensed, and dedicated staff.  Preschool Teachers and the Preschool Manager work together to plan extended exploration activities where children are encouraged to thrive.  

LEAPP helps your child get a jump start on learning with an enriching experience before kindergarten. Our teachers understand how young children develop and learn, using engagement strategies that capture the interest of children as they learn the skills and concepts necessary for success in school.
