The developmental curriculum at the Lakeview Union School is based on what is known about the
physical, social, and intellectual growth of young children; on an understanding of what children
need to learn; and on what is known about how children learn. We provide a program of study, skill
acquisition, and achievement sequenced in specific relation to children's cognitive and
socio-emotional growth patterns. Basic skills are acquired in a natural sequence enhanced by
classroom environments that encourage children to learn to make positive choices, initiate and pursue
tasks,solve problems, communicate effectively, and demonstrate an investment in their own learning.
