"LPCNS was an incredible first school experience for our family. From the sensitive way the school handles separation, to the play-based educational philosophy with embedded curricular objectives, to the modeling of communication skills and the gentle way in which conflicts were diffused, LPCNS created a warm, nurturing environment that fostered our daughter's love of school. As parents, we gained valuable child development pointers through our time assisting in the classroom, insights shared during parent/teacher conferences, and the parent education provided through school news, events, and discussions with the staff. Perhaps most importantly, we met other families who, ten years later, are still some of our closest friends."
The mission of Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School is to provide a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate program for preschool children, governed by a parent board and staffed by professional early childhood educators with assistance from parents and guardians.
