Welcome to Little Red Hen!

place for children to grow and develop into caring and competent
learners. We seek to nurture their minds and spirits by providing a
positive schooling experience which will be a bridge to a bright
educational future. ~Jane Ann Conway, Ed.M Director
Best Kept Secret In Rhode Island!
Our Philosophy: Our
program is based on a belief in the uniqueness and intrinsic value of each
child, student and staff member. We therefore strive to develop a program
that will enhance the development of each child to the fullest extent
possible. Our Program philosophy and objectives are based on the
integration of a number of theories of child development and early
education as well as on recent research findings. In general, this work
suggests that the young child learns and develops through active
involvement with the world. Through this active process the child
constructs knowledge of the world around him that make sense in terms that
he/she can understand. We also believe, based on child development theory
and research, that the young children learn best when they have and are
challenged to advance to new knowledge that is intrinsically interesting
The school is located on a hill overlooking beautiful Greenwich Bay. Our
expansive specially designed play yard is full of fun activities for climbing,
swinging, sand and water play.
The school has four classrooms equipped with
blocks, dramatic play, sand-water tables, manipulative games, computer
availability, and materials for art, science, math, music, creative movement and
language arts. Our library has over 2,000 titles including books and tapes. We
