Little Reds is a co-ed early childhood program serving children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Little Reds is for preschool aged children (2 - 5 years old) and Littlest Reds is for the tiniest members of our community (6 weeks - 2 years old). We believe that all children have the potential, curiosity and interest to succeed, especially when they are provided with the freedom to navigate their own learning with the support of experienced teachers.
Our co-ed classrooms embrace the Reggio Emilia-inspired philosophy, which allows for the teacher, child and classroom to work in collaboration. This promotes inquiry, discovery, literacy and numeracy so that RPCS Little Reds students are prepared for kindergarten and beyond.
Our teachers support both academic and character skills, such as persistence, curiosity, communication, creativity and innovation. They observe and analyze the interactions of all students, then plan and create a learning environment to guide each student as he or she progresses. This can take place indoors or in our outdoor classroom and gardens, allowing our students to have hands-on, authentic learning experiences at all times.
This comprehensive and innovative approach sets our students up for intellectual and personal success by establishing a strong foundation of academics and a love of learning.
