And the Winner for the Best Preschool in Evanston is... And the Winner for the Best Preschool in Evanston is...

Evanston Patch readers voted , 1427 Chicago Ave., as the best preschool in Evanston in of our Reader’s Choice series.

Rankings were determined based on a combination of total votes and reviews in our business directory, and though had the highest percentage of the votes (31 percent), School for Little Children won the Reader’s Choice with both strong poll numbers (27 percent) and several glowing reviews.

St. Joan of Arc Church did secure a second place finish, however, and took third place.

All three preschools received public acclaim.

Reader Susie Pratt gave School for Little Children :

“Kids are nurtured and supported by a tremendous teaching staff that knows and loves each kid individually. And the diverse, inclusive classrooms have been a fantastic environment. You can't do better.”

User "Evanston Community Member" praised the preschool for being inclusive and adapting to individual children’s needs:

“The school has been able to adapt and integrate his needs to help him go through the daily activities & expectations despite socialization and sensory challenges.”

St. Joan of Arc Church :

“St Joan of Arc School offers both half-day and full day preschool with an outstanding group of warm and caring teachers who have been with the school for many years. We could not have asked for a better experience for our daughter.”

And Puerta Abierta Preschool for its flexible daily activities schedule:

“We've chosen Puerta Abierta Preschool for each of our three children. This is a preschool that believes in the power of play and encourages children to explore what interests and excites them. Lots of time outdoors, lots of music, free form art activities, loving and patient and wise teachers, and lots of Spanish!”

Thanks to everyone who participated. Next week we will ask you to let us know what you think is Evanston’s best Italian eatery.
