Little School
6 weeks—3 years

Little School at Lincoln is a warm, child-focused environment that exudes joy. Children play, dance, sing, create, share stories, investigate nature, and share meals with friends. It’s all part of the unique path to discovery we offer for boys and girls six weeks through three years through our child-directed, Reggio Emilia-inspired approach, which emphasizes collaboration and process.

The Little School curriculum also benefits from belonging to the larger Lincoln School community and campus, with specialist and extracurricular classes including foreign language beginning at age two, as well as library, music, and physical education.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our warm, nurturing, and exciting Little School community.

New Year in the Yearling Room

What an exciting week! Our yearlings have been so busy since the New Year, enjoying new books, exploring their first snowstorm, and creative projects. This week, they read "When Snowflakes Fall" by Carl B. Sams, "Sleepy Time" by Kathryn White, and of course, "Where's Spot", a Yearling Room favorite. Along with these, the yearlings are learning to sing and sign "The More We Get Together"!

Going on a Bear Hunt!

In the Carriage House, our young toddlers have been reading We’re Going on A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. This classic story is about a father and his four young children who as the title suggests, are going on a bear hunt. They cross a field of tall, wavy grass, wade through a deep, cold river, struggle through swampy mud, find their way through a big, dark forest, fight through a whirling snowstorm, and finally enter a narrow, gloomy cave. Through reading this story, our young toddlers have experienced every aspect of the hunt the book describes. Can you guess what they found at the end?
