Our curriculum supports a balance between teacher-directed and child-directed activities.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The key to providing an exceptional experience is hiring qualified, degreed teachers, paying them well, providing them with a comprehensive benefits package, and respecting their professional knowledge and backgrounds in allowing them to create and implement unique lesson plans and child-centered experiences. A campus that provides specialized rooms and common areas, in addition to multiple outdoor options, allows teachers and children the space to realize the most meaningful educational experiences possible.

These essential elements?a child-centered campus, attention to the details, and most importantly, outstanding teachers?summarize BeanTree Learning?s goal of making a difference in children?s lives each day.
