Evanston welcomes Green Pre-school...

Green Pre-school is an ecoconscious early childhood program specializing in providing
full and part-time child care and education for children ages six weeks to three-years.  
We serve freshly prepared organic, vegetarian meals and conduct environmentally
friendly cleaning practices.  Our classroom environment and pedagogical approach is
Reggio inspired, a theoretical framework from Italy based on the utmost value for
children and families.  We are located in the teacher's private home on Central street in
Evanston.

Parent testimonials...

“We are so happy we found Green Pre-school! Our three-year-old daughter is thriving
in this peaceful and engaging environment. She is a shy kid who gradually warmed up to
the idea of being dropped off and picked up at an unfamiliar location. Now she loves it,
and loves Miss Ahzea. She is also quite attached to the other children and caregivers. It
is such a pleasure to get emails from Miss Ahzea updating us about the activities and
fun they have during the day, complete with photos. We feel that Green Pre-school will
offer much-needed stability and comfort to our daughter as she transitions to a
traditional preschool in the fall.”

“The more I get to know Ahzea and her space the happier I've been. She has been so
patient and loving with my son, who is on the fussier side; often spending hours holding
him and working with him to relax. I really feel like we were working together to get him
through his tough stage. Even with older children around she somehow manages to
devote the necessary attention to each one. I have been impressed with how well
thought out her weekly curriculums are, even for the little ones like my son. Her
approach is Reggio inspired and her space is bright, cheerful, and clean. Some of the
activities she brings out are ingenious. Though we haven't been able to take advantage
of it yet, she also prepares healthy organic meals and snacks for the older children. My
older daughter who attends a nearby Montessori school, immediately warmed to Ms.
Ahzea and wanted to spend more time with her and in her space, which I took as an
excellent sign that my son will continue to thrive there as he gets older.”

Consider home day care options for your child...


*Did you know that Green Pre-school provides the gentle, loving care which an
in-home nanny would provide, yet with the stimulation and social benefits associated
with spending time with other children?

*Did you know that Green Pre-school provides a smaller class size (six to seven
children) than the local day care centers (8 to 15 children per class)?  

*Did you know that Green Pre-school provides organic meals necessary for optional
growth and development, including whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, and
organic dairy/non-dairy milk?
