The Little Red Playhouse is a privately funded inclusive early education facility managed by La Fondation Place Coco; a non-profit, federally registered children’s charity. We believe in early intervention and integration and our mission is to teach all children as the individuals that they are, to be the best that they can be. Our integrative approach allows children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and language delays to develop, learn, and grow in an enriched environment alongside their typically developing peers, preparing them for a successful academic career. We teach all children empathy, compassion, understanding and acceptance of all diversity.
