Readers' Choice Winner: Little Ones Nursery School

Readers showed their passion for local preschools in comments and reviews.

It's obvious that Northbrook has an amazing number of exceptional preschools. Based on the passion people showed in the comments and reviews during , it's clear that there are many wonderful choices for Northbrook's youngest residents.

Voters in our poll strongly supported four top contestants: , ,  and . Because the voting was obviously unscientific, we looked to the comments and reviews readers left on Patch Places to determine a winner: Little Ones. The nursery school garnered four glowing reviews and 10 very positive comments during our contest. 

"From the basics to exposing our children to broader topics, Little Ones is a leader in preschool education," Kim Resnick wrote in her review. "The atmosphere, the caring concern, the mindfulness for detail and genuine love for children is apparent."

"I believe that Little One's biggest strength is the family-like atmosphere," commented Heidi Sloan. "The dedication and personal investment by the teachers, as well as the director, is observed in all aspects of their job."

Kudos goes not just to Little Ones but to all of the preschools in Northbrook, who obviously do an outstanding job educating and nurturing their students. We'd also like to recognize our runners up: Northbrook Community Nursery School, The Mustard Seed Nursery School and St. Norbert Preschool.

This is totally subjective on your part. There are polls every week on patch that are all unscientific and in this case you chose to ignore the votes. Why have any polls at all then? Obviously you are bias.

Having experienced two of your runner ups, I say scientific or not, you made the write decision. As you said, the other ones are wonderful and I know how great st. Nobert is if you don't mind it being religious. To me, little one is just different than the rest. One they my child comes home counting in Japanese, next day he tells me all about Australia! He hated school before little ones and now loves it. He talks about the staff as if they are part of our family and I believe they are. I love each and everyone of them for believing in my son .

Obviously this is a reader's choice award. It has nothing to do with which school is better than the other. No one can say that unless they have experienced all of them. It would be like judging a restaurant without trying the food.

It is not a readers choice award. The readers picked St. Norbert. Jennifer Fischer chose a different one as the winner. Initially when she started the poll there were a number of schools that were not even on her list.

I believe that from the begining she said that they were going to judge it by the reviews since the votes were not accurate.

She didn't . Every week there is an athlete of the week people vote. Same method. Not scientific. The winner is the one with the most votes. If their friends, families, classmates vote for them all the better.
