Our school was established in September 1982 by a group of parents and teachers who were concerned about the limited availability of quality childcare in Lincoln and the neighboring towns of Lexington, Concord, Sudbury, Wayland and Weston. Magic Garden, the result of their grassroots efforts, became the first full-time facility in the area to be licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).

Since its inception, Magic Garden has been a proponent of cooperative education, working closely with Lincoln and other local public school systems to provide environments and experiences that are appropriate for children of all learning styles and abilities.

Today, Magic Garden continues to be an integral part of the Lincoln educational community and a valuable resource to the young families who live and work nearby.

Magic Garden acknowledges the significant relationship between teachers, students, and families, and encourages continuous collaboration in a climate of mutual respect, cooperation and shared responsibility. Magic Garden is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of parents and staff who are elected by the school community annually.
