Welcome to The Little Red School House
A Licensed and Certified Day Care Center in Westbrook Maine

In September of 2000 Rebecca Palmer opened her home to a small number of wonderful families. Since then the day care has steadily grown over the years. The day care now has a new home located at the old Warren Elementary School on Main Street in Westbrook. The historic school building offers us room to grow, a more structured atmosphere and a convenient location. We strive to achieve the nurturing aspects of the home day care in the center.


The Little Red School House has a strict rule that your child will not be released into the care of someone other than the parents with out a phone call, verbal notification or a written note signed by the parent or guardian. After the parent has given us notification, the person who has been approved to pick up your child must bring photo identification prior to the release of your child.

The Little Red School House also has card key security locks on all entry doors to the class rooms. Each card key is numbered and coded to a specific person. Only that person may use the card key. If lost or stolen the card is canceled immediately and will not function if someone tries to use it.
