Lincoln Primary’s Birth to Three Program wants to welcome all of the new families to our program. We have conducted visits, and we are looking forward to additional visits in which we share activities that will help our children in all areas of development such as; physical, language, cognitive, social, emotional, and others. We conduct group connections and provide various resources. Please stop by room 101 and talk to a parent educator about job openings, job fairs, and classes, or come in so that your child or children can see our Black History displays.
