General School Mission

Childhood is a unique and valuable stage of human development. We are committed to supporting
children's social, emotional, physical, and educational development, respecting individual differences, and
helping children learn to live and play cooperatively. We strive to promote children's health, selfawareness,
competence, self worth, and resiliency.
The number one goal of The Learning Tree is to provide the highest quality child care to every single
family we serve. In an effort to achieve that goal, we will strive to:
• Make children and families our #1 priority at all times
• Respect and support families in their task of nurturing children
• Hire, train, and support the most qualified individuals
• Instill an attitude of pride and loyalty to the profession
• Serve as an advocate for children and their families
• Listen and respond to the needs of our children and families
• Maintain high standards of professional conduct
• Treat all employees, children, and families fairly, regardless of race, religious creed, sex, age,
national origin, or any other legally protected classification
• Keep informed on current matters affecting our industry
• Abide by the letter and spirit of the laws and codes that govern our industry, community, state and
federal government
• Honor the ideals and principles of the National Association of the Education of Young Children
Code of Ethical Conduct"
