Evanston Daycare & Preschool

Little Green Tree House in Evanston is our first suburban location. We are located on beautiful Central Street just west of Northwestern University’s campus and situated amongst the thriving shops and boutiques of this village-like area. This location is over 10,000 square feet and has wonderful natural light in each classroom, a large indoor play space as well as an attached outdoor playground.

Thank you to all the families that attended our Open House! It was lovely to meet you, and we are so happy that you are on our waitlist for a potential place at LGTH!

LGTH Evanston is full with a waitlist in all our programs and are not scheduling tours at the moment. We will be having another Open House soon for those wanting to add their children to our waitlist.

Please email Betsy Taylor – betsyt@littlegreentreehouse.com for more information!

Our Enrollment team would be happy to add you to our waitlist or talk further about availability! Please contact us for more info!

Meet Our Directors

Ryan Allen, Senior Managing Director

My name is Ryan. I received a Child Development degree from Ellis University in 2009. I went back to school the summer of 2015 to achieve my Director Credentials from Harold Washington. I began my career in daycare back in 2005 and have experience working with every age group. I moved into management in 2015 and opened, directed, and managed 7 locations with my previous company. As a Senior Managing Director, I believe that communication with staff is key in creating a positive and effective workplace. I consider myself to be an open, honest, and fair leader. I also believe that a strong, personal, and open relationship with parents is vital for the success of your child, the staff, and the center. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling as far and often as possible. My friends and I take full advantage of Chicago summers, enjoying concerts, street fests, and my favorite restaurant, The Dock at Montrose.

Betsy Taylor, Enrollment Administrator

Hello! My name is Betsy Taylor. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. During my sophomore year at Stanford, I studied abroad at Oxford University with the Stanford-in-Oxford program and fell in love with the UK! After graduating, I lived in London for many years. The last place I lived in London was in Borough on the South Bank which was a stones-throw from Borough Market, the National Theatre and the Tate Modern! I have been with Little Green Tree House for almost 11 years, and it has been my absolute pleasure to help so many families join LGTH over the last decade! I have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of our wonderful parents and children. Early Childhood Education is my passion, and our talented teachers are a daily inspiration. Hearing “Miss Betsy” as I walk down the hallway will never cease to bring me sunshine on the rainiest of days! I can’t wait to welcome you and your child to the Little Green Tree House family! Come grow and learn with us!
