Welcome to Kindergarten at Our Lake of the Lake Catholic School. The word kindergarten comes from the German words kinder and garten, literally "children's garden." In early kindergartens, the teachers were known as kindergarteners, the gardeners working to bring about growth in their students. This blending of words symbolizes the partnership of the learning environment in our school between students and teachers who work together to maximize development. Our goal is to provide that special garden which will allow your child to blossom and flourish. With the right mix of a challenging curriculum, a large sprinkling of songs, rhymes, and laughter, and an appreciation for the light of our Catholic faith which shines down upon us, we bring about the progress of each little person in a joyous year. We're excited to share our program with you!
