Pre-K 3 & Pre-K 4
LCS offers high quality, Christian-based early childhood education for children from three to five years old. Our preschool classrooms provide an academic environment that is fun, nurturing, and cognitively stimulating to set young children on a path for academic success. Children are engaged in cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual development. We allow students opportunities to explore their world with creative play while developing the vital learning skills and academic concepts they need in kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that encourages both social and academic development.
LCS is a CCAP provider, meaning financial assistance is available through the State of Colorado for families in need. Our Pre-K classes are licensed by the State of Colorado.

- Abeka materials have been developed as a result of 50 years of actual classroom experience in the Pensacola Christian Academy, one of America’s largest and most respected Christian day schools. Their publications are built upon the firm foundation of scriptural truth and are written by dedicated and talented Christian scholars who are well grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching.
