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.

Early Care is Here!

Starting in the Fall of 2018, SLC will provide before school care starting at 8:30 a.m.
Registration is now open!

Your support will allow SLC to bolster our commitment to embracing equity and diversity.

Make your donation by September 15th to see your brick installed this fall.
