Our mission:

We are committed to supporting children's social, emotional, physical, and educational development, while respecting individual differences.

 

We strive to provide an environment where children can develop healthy relationships, self-awareness, a strong sense of self-worth,independence and inspiration to become a successful life-long learner!

Infants

The Learning Tree's infant room has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of children 6 weeks to 12 months of age. Our loving and nurturing infant teachers will take the time to understand your child's schedule to ensure that their physical and emotional needs will be consistently and affectionately met.  We believe it is important to work closely with families as partners. In this way, we can work together to become a supportive and positive extension of your family while your child is in our care.

 

Our infant room is full of a variety of different stimulating objects and opportunities to explore and grow in a nurturing environment. We have a program that offers interactive play time, singing, exploring their environment, naps, diapering, feeding, washing and comforting. The daily schedule is flexible and will be adjusted to your infant's special needs. You will receive daily communication from your child's teacher to understand every aspect of your child's day.

 Wobbler 

At The Learning Tree, our wobbler room has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of children 12 months to 24 months of age. Wobblers thrive when they are in a safe and supportive environment that provides developmentally appropriate areas for children to explore. Our teachers recognize the uniqueness of each child as they develop. They strive to promote independence, self-help skills and encourage each child's accomplishments.​​ 

The day is filled with child-directed activities in which the child can construct his/her own knowledge through hands-on experimentation and exploration in all areas of development. Our wobbler curriculum is based on creating stimulating daily experiences for each child in our care. It includes both child-initiated and teacher-guided play. We strive to provide a classroom which is loving, safe, understanding and consistent.

Toddler

Our Toddler room has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of children 24 months-36 months of age. Our classroom is full of independent experiences and self-help areas. Our dedicated teachers encourage children with this new phase of development. At this age your child is learning new skills and changing every day!

Preschool

The Learning Tree's preschool program has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of children 3 - 4 years of age. We encourage children to explore their environment which is filled with investigation, exploration, and discovery. This allows active and enthusiastic children to refine and expand their skills and knowledge. Children are constantly engaged in learning and can make more meaningful “real world” connections with what they’re learning about in their classroom!

It is important to us that children have a wide variety of open-ended materials to investigate, explore and discover. Our curriculum is based on creating daily experiences in learning areas to engage each child in our care. Our teachers will focus on encouraging each child to learn, engage in their environment, expand their self images, explore their interests and creativity!

Our goal is to create a developmentally appropriate learning environment that empowers each child to be confident, independent and successful life long learners.

 

Prekindergarten - Kindergarten

 

Our multi age prekindergarten & kindergarten program has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of children 4 - 6 years of age. In this classroom the curriculum is both prepared and emergent. Each child will gain independence while having a more organized, purposeful play environment. Children are constantly engaged in learning and can make meaningful “real world” connections with what they’re learning about in their classroom!

The Learning Tree's dedicated teachers encourage individual growth and they nurture each child’s developmental timetable to ensure successful discoveries, a love of learning, and a strong sense of self-esteem. 

Our goal is to empower children to create a strong sense of love for learning for future success upon entering public school!
