Welcome to LIA Preschool!


As I begin my tenth year serving you as Preschool Coordinator it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2020-2021 school year at Lincoln International Academy.  August is the time of year to reconnect with old friends and welcome new friends. At LIA we are pleased to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year!  To those students and parents who are new to LIA we extend an especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year in your new school. We hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school through the LPA (Lincoln Parent Association) and your child’s classroom program.  


For many of you, Lincoln International Academy is the beginning of your child(ren)’s education. Our staff is thrilled to be building the educational foundation upon which your children grow. LIA Preschool is a happy, welcoming school in which your children will be nurtured as they embark on their academic careers. I am glad to welcome you as partners in your child’s learning and hope you will be a familiar face at LIA Preschool.


Our Preschool services grades PK2-Kindergarten. Our staff is talented and specifically trained at early childhood education. Best practices are implemented as we ensure that your children receive both the social and academic curriculum.


In addition to creating a welcome and thriving community for the students, we are incorporating the California Preschool Learning Foundations, Common Core State and California State Standards to educate your children attending PK4 and Kindergarten. Those standards define what all students are expected to know and be able to do. Our staff will be focusing on ensuring that we are in a climate of professional learning, as we believe that it is best practice to be life-long learners.


Your child is our top priority and we look forward to continuing to work together. Please remember to encourage your child to read at home.  By modeling good reading habits and getting excited about what you are reading and learning your child will be sure to follow.


We value your participation during all school events and hope to provide a variety of opportunities to help us connect with your child and family. Educational research shows that one of the most important characteristics of an effective school is building a strong home-school relationship. LIA welcomes your involvement and seeks to create a strong home-school relationships.


Two important documents that you will need to refer to during this year are the Official School Calendar and the Parent Student Handbook.  Both documents can be found online on the LIA webpage www.lincoln.edu.ni . I would like to encourage you to read these documents at your earliest convenience and to place important dates in your agenda. We are also present on social media such as Instagram and Facebook. Give us your like to keep you updated with the latest news. 


I am looking forward to keeping in touch with you in the weeks to come and wish you every blessing in the year ahead.  If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is birgit@lincoln.edu.ni.  You can also reach me by phone: 2276- 3000 Ext: 113.


I am looking forward to working with you and your child as we work toward an academically successful school year.
