Little Friends Campus

This morning, Little Friends announced that they have entered a purchase-sale agreement for their Naperville campus. An independent businessman intends to develop the land, though it is still unknown what the new development will look like or what the fate of the Kroehler mansion will be. It’s possible the building could be demolished or relocated from the property. This will allow Little Friends to move to a new location at 27555 Diehl Road in Warrenville. They will officially purchase their new location in April and plan to be at the new location by the start of the next school year in August 2020.
