come to the centers two times per year; once in early summer and once
just in time for the winter holidays.
The photographer is highly experienced in photographing young children
and the packages are very reasonably priced.
If you have your child’s picture taken and view the portraits,
you will receive a FREE mouse pad, tote bag, or child-sized T-Shirt WITH
YOUR CHILD’S PORTRAIT ON IT … no purchase necessary!
You can’t beat that deal.

Little Red Schoolhouse, Inc. does take children on fun
and educational field trips. Most
field trips are taken during the summer, but there are a few select trips
scheduled in fall, winter, or spring.
For each trip a permission form or sign up sheet must be signed
by the parent/guardian. Parents are welcome to accompany staff
and children on field trips.
A licensed stylist from Kid-Do’s Children’s
Salon comes to the Colgate location every six weeks and cuts children’s
hair upon the request of the parent.
No more taking the kids to a busy and expensive salon on a Saturday,
just drop the payment off at LRS with your child and he or she will have
a new “do” by the end of the day.
We offer a hot lunch program at an additional cost of
$2.25 per day, delivered daily from a local caterer. No more time spent packing lunches; your
child will have a delicious and nutritious lunch every day! Menus are provided monthly and meet the
State of Wisconsin’s
nutritional requirements for young children.
Sample Hot Lunch Menu
The Center welcomes any presentation of a specialty (job
experience, hobby, talent, etc.), that would enhance a curriculum unit
or theme. Please contact your child’s teacher to make these arrangements;
parent involvement is always welcome (and encouraged) at Little Red Schoolhouse,
Newsletters and Calendars
Each family will receive a monthly newsletter on or near
the first of each month. This
newsletter will contain a listing of weekly themes and units, along with
information on upcoming events and a “Looking Back” section
detailing events of the past month. Teachers will also post weekly lesson
plans and activities on your child’s classroom door.
A Parent/Teacher Communication Board is located
at each center. This board
contains important information for parents, including copies of our newsletter,
the monthly lunch menu, computer class information, special dates, and
other pertinent information.
Each child has a mailbox where his/her things are kept
(papers, artwork, newsletter, messages for home, etc.) Please check your child’s mailbox
daily, as there may be notes to parents in the mailbox; this is a very
pertinent means of communication between LRS and parents.
