Located in the heart of Evanston, School for Little Children is an independent, secular, non-profit welcoming families from all backgrounds and experiences since its founding in 1934.

The Mission of School for Little Children is to educate, nurture and inspire all children and support families in that endeavor.  We seek to provide high quality and equitable early education in a community that embraces individuality and diversity while promoting the social-emotional and cognitive development of our students.
