About Little GEMS International – Lincoln Park

Little GEMS International – Lincoln Park
Every step in education is important, but it has been scientifically proven that the preschool years are the most important as they lay the foundation for future learning and success. It is for this reason that our experts in early years education developed the successful Little GEMS model in the UK and why we are expanding the program globally...including our first U.S. school, Little GEMS International - Lincoln Park.
The Little GEMS International design is firmly based on scientific research into child development and early years education. Research indicates that children who experience high-quality early education can make significantly greater progress in school than children without that experience.
The Little GEMS International method blends the English Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum--used by successful preschools in the UK--with the unique, specially written Little GEMS International curriculum. The result is a program that enhances learning and enables children to flourish academically, personally, socially and emotionally.
Our Little GEMS International team consists of educators who are highly trained, skilled and passionate about early years education. They know how important it is to work in partnership with parents and for young children to have secure attachments with people who care about them and want the best for them.
As part of our global family, Little GEMS International children receive special consideration for placement in GEMS' award-winning schools. (More information on GEMS Education schools is available on this website.)
Choosing Little GEMS International means giving your child a headstart on education and life in a safe, nurturing, world-class preschool environment.
