School Notes

  • It can be incredibly nerve-wracking to raise a child without a manual...we scan the literature, read the books, attend birth classes and play groups, but every day greets us with the uncertainty of "Am I making the best choices for my child " 

    Let us at Lincoln Park KinderCare help! Our staff has the National Association for the Education of Young Children seal of approval on their education, training, and ability to care for Little Ones (and their parents!). Questions and repartee about your outside of school endeavors are a part of our daily life. We love it. Let us take a load off your mind, find a kindred heart, share some tips and tricks, and join your "village".

    Child-rearing is a messy job. Let's do it with fingerpaints. 


    -Jenn Wisegarver, Center Director
