"The spirit of “The Little School” and the creativity you always encourage were key factors we considered when looking for a school for our sons. We are so grateful to all of you for the love, guidance and fun you have given our boys over the years. You are such a gifted staff with such warmth and caring."

The Little School

The Little School began in a church basement in 1984.
In 2000, we were able to purchase our building in the heart of Highland Park.
The building was renovated and an amazing environment for children was created.
Our classrooms are filled with natural light, neutral colors and engaging materials.
The outdoor play space includes a Children’s Garden and gazebo.
Children can chase butterflies, grow beans and carrots,
run with rainbow streamers through garden paths and develop a love of nature.
RESPECT for ourselves, our friends and our environment, is the cornerstone of
The Little School’s philosophy.

We pride ourselves on our low teacher/child ratios,
creative curriculum and the ability to see each child as a gift.

Each day the children fill our hearts with laughter and joy.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
We look forward to sharing information with you about our special “Little School”
