About Us


We Care About Kids

The Little Red Rocket Programs curriculum is designed to balance academics and enrichment to give your child a well rounded education.

PHILOSOPHY

Little Red Rocket dual language programs offer a nurturing environment that focuses on the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of each child.   Our bilingual teachers expose children to Spanish in a way that is fun and age appropriate and use an award-winning curriculum.

At Little Red Rocket, we believe that families and educators must join together as partners. We respect the importance of each family tradition and strongly encourage parents’ involvement through family events and activities throughout the year.

OUR MISSION

Is to serve children and their families by providing innovative, high quality early learning and affordable child care as well as provide an environment where children experience secure, stimulating, healthy and enjoyable opportunities for growth and development.

OUR GOALS

Our goals at Little Red Rocket are to provide high quality care for children in a safe, secure, positive environment and to provide our students with the best education and care available.

We have created an environment that meets the needs and promotes the physical, social, and emotional development of the child using creativity and age-appropriate practices. We believe there should be a balance between education and independent play.
