After much anticipation, the new Lower School playground is now open!
3 years—Grade 5
Lower Schoolers at Lincoln eagerly explore, question, and reflect. They might collect and examine sea life along the shores of Narragansett Bay, or problem-solve through a engineering design challenge. Later, they might analyze issues of social justice, hearing from a Holocaust survivor as a guest speaker. Experiences like these create critical and passionate thinkers who possess solid foundational skills. Our students learn to face and embrace problems, to be leaders, and to act as caring and cooperative classmates.
Along the way, we support children's needs and encourage their strengths by getting to know them as individuals and partnering with their parents. We celebrate their accomplishments through school-wide gatherings, fostering a sense of community and pride. Our ultimate goal is to help students become engaged, enthusiastic, and confident learners.

Nursery: Oak Room
Pre-Kindergarten: Ginkgo Room
The Early Childhood program consists of two co-ed classrooms: the Oak room for three- and four-year-olds, and the Ginkgo room for four- and five-year-olds. Our approach is influenced by the internationally renowned Reggio Emilia concept of early childhood teaching and learning. Through an evolving, emergent curriculum shaped by each child’s cognitive social and physical development, children come to view school as a place of exploration and discovery.
The Academic Program in Kindergarten through Grade 5 engages girls in active exploration of the world around them. Our curriculum is designed to reflect their interests and broaden their experiences. As they ask questions and seek answers, they are encouraged to see themselves as life-long learners.
