Lakeview Child Center is an autonomous affiliate of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton. Lakeview Child Center, which opened in 1985, operates a network of seven childcare centers throughout Central New Jersey. At Lakeview Child Center, we provide a loving and caring environment where every child is actively involved in the learning process. The teachers and staff prepare exciting learning centers that stimulate a child's sense of exploration and discovery. Through creative play, children learn to explore, experiment, and draw conclusions about the world around them. Our integrated, thematic curriculum stresses hands-on, child-initiated activities which stimulate and encourage the development of language, cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills. These activities, which are both age appropriate and individualized, help children develop a healthy self concept and a feeling of accomplishment. Each child is encouraged to develop a love for self, others, the world and learning. Our goal is to introduce children to the joy of learning within a framework where intellectual curiosity and social responsibility go hand in hand.
