About Us


Wee Play School is a large child care center located in the historic Millyard district of downtown Manchester, NH. We were established in 1982 and have been going strong for 30 years providing quality care for children in our community, ages 6 weeks through 11 years old.

Our facility was originally designed by Louise Huppe for 24 children, ages 6 weeks to 6 years, and a staff of 4. Wee Play School has since, due to its overwhelming success and impeccable reputation, expanded to 13,500 square feet and is able to accommodate up to 228 children. We have made a commitment to provide care to all children, including those with special needs.

Our professional staff of 21 teachers are trained in Early Childhood Education as well as infant and child CPR and first aid. We work closely with school systems and early intervention programs to provide special services to meet the needs of these children. Upon Louise Huppe’s retirement, the center’s ownership and management was taken over by her daughter, Amy Barron, who continues to uphold the values and emphasis on quality, that was instilled by her mother.
