Little & Lower School Campus Enhancements

Historic Gift Kicks Off Little & Lower School Campaign

One of the best investments in a child is an investment in their education. A recent anonymous donor’s generosity put that ethos into action in Little and Lower Schools, with a gift that will kickstart the next phase in Lincoln’s 10-year Facilities Master Plan, dedicated to growing and enhancing our historic Butler Avenue campus.

The unprecedented $4.5 million gift, the third gift over the one-million-dollar mark secured in the last three years, will strengthen Lincoln’s commitment to innovative curriculum and best-in-class teaching, to further diversify our student body and make campus improvements.

A sizable portion of that gift will go toward the lives and learning of Lincoln’s littlest. Kicking off a $5 million campaign, $3 million has been earmarked for the growth and enhancement of our Little and Lower Schools.

The fall of 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Lincoln’s Little School, which offers boys and girls six weeks to 3 years old a unique path to discovery through a child-directed, Reggio Emilia-inspired approach.

In response to the high demand for these two outstanding programs, the plan is to begin in December 2019. This project, still in the initial design stage, will help to strengthen the best early childhood education program in the state (Little School operates with a continual waitlist), and complement the unique and innovative learning that the Lower School is widely known for. 

This gift showcases the depth of commitment our community has to Lincoln, and is emblematic of its current momentum. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting development!
