6 weeks - 3 years
We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our warm, nurturing, and exciting Little School community.
Building Beginnings (rendering on left) will make the way for more future learners at Little School!
- Infants & Yearlings (6 weeks – 18 months)
- Young Toddlers (starting around 18 months)
- Older Toddlers and Young Threes (24 months and up)
- Life in the Little School
It’s all about joy, discovery, friendship, and growth!
Life in the Little School means…
- Singing, moving and shaking in weekly music and movement classes. Little School Partners with East Side Music Together for weekly classes that nurture the musical growth of our youngest learners.
- Participating in campus-wide activities with our older students, like the International Day of Peace.
- Speaking, singing and listening to stories in French and Spanish taught by language specialists from our World Language Department.
- Exploring creative expression through dramatic play, creative block building, outdoor play and mixed media art.
- Listening to stories, poems and fingerplays both in the classroom and in the library. Weekly library classes are taught by our Lower School Librarian.
- Caring for, harvesting, and sampling vegetables from the Edible Garden.
- Exploring language with shared reading and writing, nursery rhymes, book making, storytelling and journal “writing.”
- Learning through discovery and connecting through the community.

In this guest blog post, Stephanie Petronelli takes us inside Little School's morning meeting.
As a school, Lincoln is shaped daily by the passion and brilliance of its faculty and staff, and this year we’d like to help you–our community–get to know them a bit better!
This week, faculty and staff returned to campus for Faculty Work Week, a final chance to prepare for the excitement of the 2019–2020 school year! While we are thrilled to welcome back so many familiar faces, we are also excited to have 10 new members of our community this year.
In Lincoln's Little School children spend a lot of time outdoors, sparking their innate curiosity and inviting them to use all of their senses to explore the world around them.
