About Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School
The mission of Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School (LPCNS or The Co-op) is to provide a safe and nurturing developmentally appropriate program for pre-school children, governed by a parent board, and staffed by professional early childhood educators with assistance from parents. The Co-op embraces a play based curriculum that is based upon the three principles of Social Constructivist philosophy: community, cooperation, and relationships. Since its founding in 1951, LPCNS has stayed true to its vision: to provide play-based and emergent curriculum supported by developmentally appropriate practices grounded in a deep knowledge of child development.
LPCNS is a licensed and NAEYC accredited nursery school.
