Imagination, passion, and the feeling of community flows through students and parents alike at Red Door.
Children are learning and interacting with both peers and teachers in an environment which exudes creativity, exploration, and an experience that will evoke a love of learning and inspire young minds. This inspiration comes from a highly qualified staff, mindfulness approaches to learning, a curriculum that supports and embodies the curiosity in our children and balances it perfectly with an exceptional foundation for school.
We believe in educating the whole child on this beginning journey and understand that the relationships made with families are life long. Red Door is an experience, a home, and a pillar in our community for all children.
Be creative, Be Imaginative, Feel Inspired!
Red Door will use STEAM initiatives to enhance children’s learning through exploration, discovery, and curiosity. Our promise to our families is to fill our rooms with imagination, wonder, and mindfulness practices through a passionate and highly qualified staff. Red Door promotes a love of learning and believes wholeheartedly in a strong early foundation, educating the whole child on his or her own journey.
Our Story: Inspiring Young Minds
A Campaign for Red Door Early Learning Center
If there is one thing that is certain, it is that Red Door Early Learning Center has gone through a major transformation over the last 2 years. Changes of this magnitude are only possible with the generosity of community members who posses the vision and a strong commitment to the future of an organization.
We are honored to celebrate two such families who are deeply committed to the future of Red Door Early Learning Center. The Fistner and Perrotta families entrusted the teachers of Red Door with their children’s first introduction to education. What they found was so much more than a pre-school.
Red Door teachers became an extension of their family and the school became a second home. They witnessed their children flourish and develop a deep love of learning, and for that they will be forever grateful to those who inspired their children.
In the summer of 2016, the Fistner and Perrotta families were presented with a challenge. Red Door Early Learning Center could no longer remain in Hellertown, and was in need of a new location for the 2017 school year, or it would cease to exist. There was no time for a traditional capital campaign, so both families committed to funding a full renovation of the building at 4777 Saucon Creek. The creation of a non-profit Early Childhood Private Preschool implementing a state-of-the-art, STEAM-influenced program designed to engage young minds and create a life-long love of learning was reborn. In only 9 short months Red Door was ready to accept its first camp of students at the new location.
It was clear from the very early stages that this project was turning into much more than just a new facility. The Fistner and Perrotta families recognized that they had the unbelievable opportunity to design a space around how children play and learn. Inspiration is found in every corner and the space invites children to be curious, to touch, to investigate, to explore, to have moments of quiet and moments of wonder. Equally important is the fact that the space matched the caliber of the teaching staff. The space allows our highly qualified teachers to teach in a multitude of environments. The classrooms are imaginative spaces full of opportunities to explore. The flex space is perfect for getting little bodies moving. The creations that are produced in the science and art lab are incredible, and the nature playground is a multifaceted outdoor learning space that functions as an extension of the classroom for the teachers as well as a space where children can explore, take risks, and use their imaginations.
Red Door is like no other place when it comes to early childhood education. The teaching staff recognizes that every child’s journey is different and they focus on educating the whole child. They are passionate about developing each child at their own pace. The result is an environment where every child succeeds, regardless of their abilities. The STEAM based curriculum offers the unique blend of imagination and discovery. This curriculum stimulates new ideas and critical thinking that the students take part in and bring to fruition.
The addition of Sara Kimble as Executive Director ensured a future for Red Door where the teaching staff was given the facility and the stability that it deserved, and where families in the community could count on Red Door for generations to come.
The mission of Red Door Early Learning Center is to inspire children. Invest in Red Door’s future today!
" Red Door has established itself as the pillar of education for our preschool children "
Red Door has become the safest place outside of my home for my children. I feel like it's a home away from home. Every year Red Door continues to offer a stronger, better program for our children. The staff is priceless!! I really believe Red Door has established itself within the community as the pillar of education for our preschool children. I am lucky to have had 3 of my 4 children spend their early years within the Red Door program.
