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.

“Coroline is loving kindergarten and learning so much.  All of the credit belongs to the teachers and staff at SLC. Really–we feel the loving, kind, and rich learning environment at SLC was so tremendously important to developing her safe, secure, and happy feeling in school.

We just love SLC!!!” 

– Fran L, Former SLC Parent
