LILA Kinder Prep, a preschool for ages 3 and 4, invites parents and their children to experience this unique language-infused program at one of two FREE sessions on January 29, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. or from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the facility located at 121 11th Ave. SE in Forest Lake across from LILA’s Main Campus.

LILA Kinder Prep, which has earned a four-star rating from Parent Aware, introduces preschoolers to Spanish and Chinese in addition to offering academic and social experiences in English. The preschool uses the renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme curriculum to prepare young learners for the kindergarten classroom.

“This is a great way to try our program and see how fun and effective it is for young children to learn new language skills beyond English,” LILA Kinder Prep manager Sharon DeRaad explained. “Parents will stay in the same room with their child for the first part of the session. We’ll demonstrate our greeting model and sing songs with the children. We’ll have a snack, too. The children will spend the latter part of the session with one of our teachers participating in activities while other staff members meet with parents and answer questions.”

LILA Kinder Prep requests that parents call to register in advance at 651-464-0771 or send an email. All LILA Kinder Prep students enrolling in 2018-19 should be 3 or 4 years of age on September 1; they must also be potty-trained.  

LILA Kinder Prep is now accepting four-year-old students for this Spring semester, with immediate starting dates. For tours, rates, or other information, visit or call 651-464-0771.
