Providing care for children from birth through school age, Educare of Lincoln serves the Belmont neighborhood of North Lincoln. 

The facility¬†benefits¬†nearly 200 children and blends the best program and design characteristics of other Educare facilities nationwide. Early education rooms are arranged in neighborhoods following continuity of care concepts, allowing children to age through the program together. Outdoor play spaces are divided into age-appropriate areas to promote a developmentally appropriate learning environment. Educare Lincoln derived its design inspiration from the impact natural light has on the crafting of spaces, and from the planned native landscapes at the adjacent Belmont Park.
