Lincoln Primary

Welcome to Lincoln Primary School where early learning begins. The Early Childhood program for Bellwood School District 88 recognizes that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. We value this relationship and work in partnership with the family to enhance your child’s development and deepen your knowledge about the importance of early academic learning and interventions. 

Our preschool program strives to use play as a tool to provide three to five-year-old children with the skills they need to develop a strong foundation to become lifelong learners. Children are provided with the opportunities for both structured and free-play allowing them to develop essential learning skills such as early literacy and number sense as well as following directions, cause-effect relationships, critical thinking, and conflict resolution. Development of these skills will prepare students for a seamless transition to kindergarten. At Lincoln Primary it is our goal to educate the whole children as we prepare them to be lifelong learners and globally responsible citizens.

A Message from Our Principal

Greetings to all! And just like that 2017-2018 school year is quickly coming to a close. It seems like just yesterday we, at Bellwood ECC, were welcoming students back to the program, and now the final days and weeks of school are upon us. In light of this, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our ECC parents and guardians and those who regularly support our early childhood program and learning community. We truly appreciate all of your efforts to make our program successful!

Snapshot of May Learning

During the month of May, students in preschool classrooms have been learning about the life cycle through their classroom’s exploration of the caterpillar/butterfly. Each classroom received caterpillar kits; therefore, students were able to observe the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly. Once the metamorphosis occurred, each class released the butterflies back into nature, and oh what an experience this was for children. They cheered and clapped as each butterfly took flight. Also, of note, students explored the lives of famous historical figures in Mexico’s history. As a means to reinforce this learning, engage your child in extended conversation about these learning themes underscoring associated vocabulary.
