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.

Little School offers a nurturing environment where children explore at their own pace and developmental level, using open-ended materials. As they grow, learn and build relationships with staff and the children around them, they develop a sense of competence and trust in the world.
Young Toddlers at Little School develop an appreciation for their uniqueness along with a sense of respect for others and themselves. They engage in language, motor, cognitive, social, and emotional development through hands-on exploration and group interactions.
Our Older Toddlers and Young Threes follow their natural curiosity, develop ideas, and learn about their world. We take cues from their individual interests, learning styles, and abilities, with a curriculum focused on the process and foundation of learning, not the resulting product.
The yearlings explored with washable Tempera paint (Quick drying & easy to clean/sensory play). Finger painting encourages the development of hand/eye coordination and spatial awareness. It helps develop fine motor skills while learning about colors, new tools, & language development.
Over the past several weeks, Beech Tree friends have found it fun to hide underneath the tables. Teachers have utilized this interest by creating an easel on the underside of the table. Teachers first displayed a picture of Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel. Teachers explained that he spent years laying on his back to create this piece.
