  • Welcome!  My name is Claudia Albert, M.Ed., Director of Lakeside Lutheran Preschool.  I hold a dual Master’s in Education, Educational Technology and Reading, from Concordia University. I earned my BA degree from the University of Southwest Florida and hold my Florida Director Credentials.

    I have over ten years of educational experience and joined Lakeside Preschool in 2017.  I hold memberships with NAEYC, Education for Young Children FL Chapter (FLAEYC) and SECA, Southern Early Childhood Association.   I am also an active facilitator for the Patterson Foundation in Sarasota for MITM, Mind in the Making. 

    I am excited with Lakeside Preschools mission, vision and continued growth as we serve the Venice Community and South Sarasota County.  All families are welcome to visit our preschool to learn more about who we are, the programs we offer and to meet our awesome staff.
