Everyday Magic, Inc. (EMI) has been providing quality programs at Lakeshore since 1989. We are a child development center located within Lakeshore School.
Our mission is to support the growth and development of school-aged children, their families, and child care professionals through children’s programs and services. Our program is based on our philosophy. We believe in caring for and nurturing the individual needs of the whole child by balancing their daily experience to address sensory and emotional development. The program strives to build a safe community which respects diversity in all aspects and encourages creativity using developmentally appropriate practices. Students can sign up for either or both morning and afternoon sessions. Hours are 7:30-9:30 a.m. and 3:35-6 p.m. More information available at everyday-magic.org/

We are devoted to promoting the merits of chess among children by using stories, dances, and catchy songs to make the game of chess exciting and easy to understand. This wonderful learning experience not only teaches children to play chess, but also prepares them for life by enhancing their thought process. Children participating in our program develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, have better concentration and mental discipline, gain confidence, and have lots of FUN!

New to Lakeshore in 2015-16, our LEGO® Engineering enrichment program takes on real-life engineering challenges and explores concepts in physics, architecture, mechanical, and structural engineering. Students work individually, in teams, and as a group throughout the sessions. A short discussion and demonstration of the day’s topic starts each meeting. Children are given a design/building assignment at the beginning of class. Instructors will provide individual assistance and instruction and facilitate challenges, performance testing, competitions, and modifications to projects.
