Infant and Toddler Programs
Many families are surprised to learn that we offer age-appropriate lesson plans for even the youngest of children. We understand the importance of building relationships with children. We also plan activities that promote healthy development including problem solving, gross and fine motor skills, creative expression and communication — beginning as young as 6 weeks of age. Children are assessed weekly to ensure they're reaching their developmental milestones.
Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Programs
Preschool and pre-kindergarten programs at Lincoln Learning Center give your child the opportunity to acquire the skills needed for a successful transition into kindergarten.
More than 93 percent of the children who complete our preschool program meet key developmental milestones before entering their first year of grade school. In addition, our students typically score higher than the national average for reading readiness by the time they enter grade school.
Before- and After-School Care
Before- and after-school care is provided for children in kindergarten through 12 years of age. Studies show that children perform better in school when they're enrolled in quality preschool, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
Our early education and school-age programs combine:
- Educational and recreational activities.
- Time to do homework.
- Qualified homework helpers to complete school assignments.
- Access to special computer programs.
- A credentialed staff of lead teachers. We also have pickup and drop-off services available for nine area schools. Call to find out if this is available at your child's school.
Lincoln Learning Center is housed in the same building with Lincoln Adult Day Health Care. This proximity offers a unique opportunity for children and seniors to participate in mutually beneficial, interactive activities.
Preschool is a critical time to evaluate children to ensure they have the basic skills and knowledge they need to be successful learners. Children from the ages 3-5 who are enrolled in Lincoln Learning Center are screened to identify their strengths as well as potential developmental delays. The screenings, valued at $420, are provided at no cost to parents, and are administered by staff of the Arizona Literacy and Learning Center. This is paid for through funds from multiple grant sources, such as the Lincoln Guild.
