About the Provider

Description: Little Red Schoolhouse is a child-centered learning environment for children in their early years of development. Knowing these years are the most crucial time in the emotional, social, and cognitive development of a child, we seek to provide a nurturing, supportive environment in which the child will thrive in each of these areas. We wish to extend to our students our desire for them to reach their highest potential, and instill in them a love of learning. Our program is highly structured and stimulating, and offers an integrated curriculum that ties all subject areas together through a hands-on approach. We believe that children learn by doing; a child-centered, yet teacher-directed environment is most appropriate for an effective early childhood program. Our staff possesses the best skills to offer a warm, supportive, and exciting environment with a very small student/teacher ratio, allowing more one-on-one attention. Focusing on one child at a time allows teachers to examine both their strengths and areas of need in order to “customize” an individual program for each child. In doing so, we are respecting the learning style of each child, and tailoring our curriculum accordingly. As well as integrating all the core subject areas, we also provide the children with opportunities to expand on their independence and social skills. These are ongoing processes that are reinforced on a daily basis. Learning takes place in the classroom, outdoors on the playground, and frequently expands into the community.
