About us

The Lakes Children’s Center offers a unique educational experience for children 8 weeks to 12 years of age. Located on Lake Jaquith, our Christian and nature-based school is open weekdays from 7:00 AM- 5:00 PM.

Our Reggio Emilia inspired program and discovery-centered curriculum provides children with hands-on, playful learning and creates experiences for children to learn about God’s love and the Bible. The classroom environments have accessible, open-ended materials that encourage development through language, movement, art, play and community building. Our outdoor space has a playground, logs, stumps and more. Our program is open for enrollment to all families and children of Waupaca and the surrounding communities.

Our Mission

The Lakes Children’s Center, as an extension of The Lakes, exists to honor God’s deep love for children by providing a safe environment, caring staff, and opportunities for children to explore nature and learn through play. We strive to partner with our families and staff to create a community of belonging and support; rooted in God’s truth and love.
