At Learning Tree we believe young children need to act as children. The Preschool has been developed into a “prepared environment,” which excites and challenges the child’s curious intellect. With a world of concrete material, this school encourages your child to explore, touch, create, learn and communicate. The atmosphere is Montessori-oriented, allowing freedom with responsibility, while emphasizing the development of “inner discipline” rather than the use of outward controls. Literacy is at the heart of everything we do, providing a print rich environment and appreciation for the spoken & written word. The preschool prepares the children for Kindergarten which continues on utilizing many of the successful methods used in our preschool program.
