Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The purpose of The Learning Tree Child Care Centers is to provide quality, developmentally appropriate, licensed preschool, preschool with extended child care, and school age care to children between the ages of six weeks and eleven years. Upon enrollment each child is assigned a Primary Caregiver. The Primary Caregiver takes care of the individual needs of each child on a daily basis. Primary Caregivers are responsible for the daily and academic needs of your child, communicating with parents and any medications your child may have to receive."
