Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School is fortunate to have a dedicated, resourceful, well-qualified staff consisting of a Director, teachers, a coordinator for children and families with special needs, and a financial manager. All teachers have degrees in early childhood educations and over 85% have master's degress in their field.The teaching staff works together to plan and
evaluate the program and to discuss the progress of individual children. The staff works as a team in both the planning and the execution of the daily classroom program.
The curriculum at LPCNS grows out of the interests of the children, and the teacherâ€™s knowledge of child development and developmentally appropriate practice. The curriculum is linked to the individual and group goals that teachers establish based on their knowledge of child development and in cooperation with parents. Teachers employ strategies including identification, selection, and preparation of materials and methods to address childrenâ€™s individual differences in developmental levels, culture and learning styles. LPCNS is non-denominational and does not incorporate religious training into the curriculum. We recognize and respect the beliefs the children bring from their homes.
