Program Details

Family Service Lincoln is a safe and exciting program filled with fun and creative learning centers that are designed for children to learn through play and active involvement. With fantastic indoor and outdoor play areas, children have daily opportunities for exploratory activities and large muscle play. We use appropriate curriculums for each age group designed to recognize the different levels of ability and development.

We employ a professional staff who acknowledges individual differences in the children and creates an environment that allows children to develop at their own pace through active exploration. The children are involved in activities that meet their specific needs in all development areas including emotional, social, and physical and intellectual.
