Welcome to the neighborhood of Lincoln Nursery School!

During the 2020-21 school year, LNS faculty responded to Covid while maintaining our core values. Through the efforts of our community, we were open all year. We learned a lot – adapting our work to be primarily outside and slowing down our pace to support the anxiety brought about by the pandemic. We feel prepared for the 2021-22 school year, continuing to be responsive as we address Covid variants.

Families from a dozen towns travel to LNS, at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. Children’s ages range from two years, nine months to six years old.

For seventy-five years, LNS, a Reggio-inspired partnership of teachers, family members and children, has created a meaningful and reflective school, establishing a foundation for lifelong learning. Our location at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum broadens our experiences and sense of community.

Mission Statement

Lincoln Nursery School is a cooperative partnership among our citizens – children, teachers, and families, as well as our broader community.  We value open communication and mutual respect, are committed to social justice, and foster a culture of collaboration to encourage every child to take action in a connected world. Learning through play and inquiry, listening and dialog, we generate a multiplicity of relationships.  These connections broaden our sense of place and open the world from “me” to “we.”

“What we practice we become.”  –Tara Brach
