Serving Metairie for 44 Years Strong

The Early Years

The Little Red Schoolhouse was established in 1974. Our original location was a little red cottage tucked away in the Old Metairie neighborhood. In the late 1980’s we moved into our current location on Metairie Road. Connie Richardson and Debbie Schweter have pioneered this great dream and are now the directors of a program that nurtures and educates children from infancy through pre-kindergarden.

Our Directors

The school is owned and under the directorship of Connie Richardson and Debbie Schweter. Connie attended Southeastern Louisiana University and holds a degree in Early Childhood Education. Debbie holds a B.A. in Elementary Education from Louisiana Tech University and specialized in Early Childhood Development.
