Westlake Elementary School

PK-K House

Kindergarten classroomWestlake Elementary School strives to empower all students to achieve their educational goals, to direct their lives, and to contribute to society. the objectives for each child include:

  • Communicate ideas in a variety of forms
  • Gather, interpret and analyze information
  • Accept responsibility as citizens of the school, community and world
  • Make decisions, make judgements and solve problems individually and in groups

The Westlake Early Childhood Program believes that learning is enhanced by the opportunity provided to all children to interact with their environment and others. The early childhood services available through the Westlake City School District are based on the works of Piaget, Erikson, Maslow, Kohlberg and Katze.

  • Each child is unique
  • All children can learn and their potential is unlimited
  • Children learn best through play, exploration and discovery
  • Learning activities must be age and individually appropriate
  • the sharing of knowledge and expertise is critical to development
  • The inter-relationships between the child, family and community form the core for early childhood services

Collaborative efforts between home, school, agencies and community enhance the preschool experience. Together they assist in preparing children for their next learning environment according to their own unique needs. These efforts must support skills in decision-making, self-confidence, problem solving, and the acceptance of self and others.
