Welcome to the Lincoln Public Schools Preschool Program!
Lincoln Public Schools Preschool Program offers many different learning opportunities. In inclusive classroom settings each class provides active learning, adult-child interactions, a safe and engaging learning environment, daily routines and child assessment. Each child learns through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities in the classroom and during home visits.
Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. Creative Curriculum for Preschool is based on five fundamental principles:
*Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical foundation for successful learning.
*Social-emotional competence is a significant factor in school success.
*Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning.
*The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning interactions.
*Teacher-family partnerships promote development and learning.
Second Step is the Social Emotional Learning Curriculum. This curriculum helps preschoolers:
*Learn social skills
*Develop problem solving abilities
*Foster independence and self-control
The Early Childhood Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for Behavior (MTSS-B) provides a framework of evidence-based practices that promote young children's social emotional competence, and prevents and addresses challenging behaviors. The supports include:
*high quality learning environments that have positive behavior
expectations and predictable routines
*the intentional teaching of social-emotional strategies
*individualized interventions for children who need a positive
behavior support plan.
