Reimagining Play Education
Lincoln Community Preschool is based on the science of learning. Learning occurs children are mentally active, engaged, socially active, and building meaningful connections to their lives. Lincoln Community Preschool follows The California Preschool Curriculum Framework.
Lincoln Community Preschool connects intentional play activities to individualized child-centered goals. Lincoln Community Preschool is an inclusive learning environment encouraging the growth and development of children in their own time. The learning environment is also food-allergen-free, in addition to being Eco-Healthy Childcare Endorsed.

Individualized play-based learning experience!
Our preschool program is designed for all children ages 2-6. We offer multiple sessions; a morning session from 9:00 - 12:00 and an afternoon session from 1:00- 4:00. It is important to us for children and families to feel welcomed, nurtured and safe. Together, with children and families, we develop goals for your child's personal growth and development. We utilize California's developmental tracking tool from early infancy to kindergarten entry. Parents can access their child's daily observations and messages from the Teachers with the Learning Genie App. We thrive to build confidence and competence with every child.
