Lakewood’s vision for all scholars of differing abilities is:

Developing scholars who are prepared to engage and thrive in all academic and social environments and circumstances.

Lakewood is a Title 1 early childhood school located in Baltimore City, Maryland. Lakewood is a unique school that serves the community as well as east side of the city for scholars who need additional supports. We are the only school in Baltimore City to have a unique population of typical and atypical early learning scholars.

Lakewood seeks to provide many social and academic experiences for scholars aged 4 to 6. Supporting each child where they are developmentally and providing them with the tools, strategies, and solid pre-academic base necessary to live a fulfilling, productive life. 

Lakewood’s curriculum is Tools of the Mind, a research-based play curriculum that is infused with pre-academic and academic content. Lakewood strives to meet each child where they are developmentally and scaffold learning activities to challenge each child at their individual level, which in turn builds and fosters scholars' social-emotional and self-regulatory skills needed to be successful in life.
