Little red schoolhouse 20 sprague ave riverside. Two of my three children went here. Only two because we moved. That was 10 yrs ago. To this day not only do some of the same teachers work there, but they care so much about each and every child that when in the area they actually remember my boys. Longevity in employees and the amazing way they teach not only foundations but caring and community action prove what an incredible school it is!

Little Red School house is were my daughter is attending now and my son has attened as well but is off to Kindergarten this fall! I am very pleased with the staff there, they are very caring and take care of all of the children so well! I always recommend anyone in the area to send their children there because the staff actually work with the children! To make sure they learn about new and important things in daily life! I am pleased at how much my son has learned from just a daycare! I could never send my daughter to any other school because I trust the staff and feel very safe knowing she gets the best care!

Little Red Schoolhouse in Riverside RI. By far one of the best child care centers inthe area. Great staff, grounds and curriculum!!

Little Red School House is a wonderful place for children. The staff is very professioal and nuturing. They provide a well rounded curriculum to the children There are alway many special events as well. Such as the annual Christmas and Spring concerts. I highly recommend LRS to anyone I know who is looking for chilcare. When a parent drops off their child, they leave knowing that their child is in a caring, learning and fun environment.

My children attended The Little Red School House when they were 3 and 4 years old, It was a warm nurturing supportive environment. They had a great time there and looked forward to school everyday. It was a terrific way to introduce them to an educational setting. Thanks Little Red Schoolhouse 6 years later they both still look forward to school everyday.

I worked at the Little Red Schoolhouse for 6 years...this is a amazing school and place to work for...This day care retains their staff for years and your child does not have a revolving door of staff coming in and out of there life...The children being learning valuable education as early as 18 months...I recommend my family members, my godchildren, my friends children, and I recommend all to this amazing daycare...It was a honor to work with such amazing kids and get to be apart of their first experience at school, also a honor to work with such amazing staff and owner.

She has an amazing vocabulary! It's like talking to an adult :))

So many of my friend's children have attended over the years and looked forward to going every day. It's such a clean, cute place with a warm and loving staff. Learning and playing mesh well and the kids don't realize that they're even learning. It all seems like play to them because of the wonderful staff. A real home away from home for the little ones.
