Child Care

childcare

Local daycare providers and Lakehead Public Schools have formed a very beneficial child-focused partnership. At Lakehead Public Schools sites, daycare providers and school educators are working together to ensure that current and future students are prepared to succeed in elementary school and beyond.We are very pleased to offer Before and After School Child Care Services in our Full-Day Early Learning Program schools.  Each year, all schools offering this program will survey their school communities to determine the interest in these services.  Before and/or After School Programs will be offered in schools where there are sufficient numbers of interested families.
