Day in the Life

General School Mission

My Little Learning Tree stimulates a child’s curiosity and encourages well–rounded growth for all children based on their individual levels of development. Children are encouraged to develop a sense of self-worth while learning basic skills at their individual pace. By participating in hands on activities and providing a nurturing environment, children will be able to develop whole body and hand eye coordination along with expressive language and listening skills. Language, literacy, and math concepts are introduced through every day experiences of the children. Having a nurturing and comfortable environment promotes self esteem and imagination. Our program strives to create a culturally sensitive setting in which we respect the variety of languages, cultures, and family structures represented in our school.
