If you're a parent, you want only the best for your child – that includes schools.

Lincoln Learning Center at 303 E. Eva St. in Phoenix provides learning opportunities for children from the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years. The Center is known for its licensed, accredited child care and early education programs.In fact, it's one of the few schools in the state to meet the nation's highest standards for child development and school readiness.

The Center has a five-star rating from First Things First and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

Charlotte Shaff, whose sons Eric, 3, and Jake, 4 1/2, attend Lincoln Learning Center, loves it "because of the wide variety of things they learn there. Jake's learning how to count in Japanese. The boys are drawing or painting all the time, too. Lincoln Learning Center really encourages their creative side."

Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) also receive plenty of attention at the Center. Staff there recently bought such equipment as pathways, ramps, balls and see-through tubes, offering an engaging doorway into STEM topics. "We were able to buy the equipment thanks to a combination of funds from First Things First and the Ruth Ann Coleman Endowment," said Kathryn Wauters, the Center's director.

Preschool and pre-kindergarten programs at Lincoln Learning Center help children acquire the skills they need for a successful transition into kindergarten.

Scholarships are available for those needing help with tuition.

If you have older children, the Center provides before-and-after school care. Tutors are available. For more information, please visit or call 602-943-3731.
