little red hen logoWelcome to Little Red Hen!

We are a truly a stimulating 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 to them.
