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.
