Located in the heart of Evanston, School for Little Children is a play-based, part-time preschool serving children ages 2 to 5. Since its founding in 1934, SLC has developed a strong reputation for quality early education, serving over 150 children each year.

SLC believes all children thrive, and their experiences are enriched, when differing backgrounds come together in a nurturing environment. Embracing individuality and diversity, our high teacher/child ratio provides support for each child and their unique and differing needs.
