Choosing a preschool can feel like a daunting task! There are so many different kinds of school, locations, and days of operation. How do you find the one that is just right for you? As parents ourselves we know that every bit of information we can gather helps, but also that you are busy raising kids.

The Little Lake County Preschool Guide has been put together with parents in mind. Schools are listed by city so you can find the one that is in your town or near your office. Each listing includes the type of program, ages, days, and length of the day so you can easily compare and find just what you are looking for. No buzzwords, no heavy handed sales tactics here — just simple, easy to read listings from as many schools as we could receive a response from.

Little Lake County Preschool Guide:


Little Lake County is not associated with any of the schools listed; partnerships and event listings are not an endorsement of a particular school or curriculum, but are provided to give the community more in-depth information about options available. This guide is updated yearly. Schools were invited to complete a form for inclusion, larger listings paid for those positions.
