Learning Tree Academy"Children do not care how much you know until they know how much you care" - Teddy Roosevelt
Welcome to your children’s home away from home!
If you looking for a quality place of care for your children, look no further.
Here, at Learning Tree Academy, we welcome babies starting at 6 weeks old and lovingly support them up to early elementary school.
We welcome Infants to Pre-K
Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment where children can develop a sense of belonging based on mutual importance and respect. We want to help you raise respectful, resilient, and capable children.
We welcome children from diverse families and different cultural backgrounds. We understand how kids learn and our curriculum is adapted to the needs of different age groups.
At Learning Tree Academy, we have a personal commitment to provide warm, loving, and engaging care to our children. Our staff has more than 100 years of Early Childhood Education and experience combined. We strive for growth and use every learning opportunity to enhance our curriculum.
As teachers, we recognize that children always make decisions in response to their experiences. There’s a belief behind every behavior. Kids learn about the world by doing. Therefore, it’s our job to encourage them and provide opportunities for them to learn the best social and life skills.
We follow the Five Criteria of Positive Discipline:
Help children feel a sense of connection (Belonging and Significance);
Is kind and firm at the same time (Respectful and Encouraging);
Is effective long-term (punishment may “work” in the short term, but has negative long-term results);
Teach valuable social life skills for a good character (Respect, Concern for others, Problem-solving, Cooperation, Contribution).
Invite children to discover how capable they are and to use their personal power in constructive ways.
When children experience a loving connection and provided with adequate autonomy that allows them to contribute, they feel stronger about themselves. They learn that they’re capable, respected by others, and they experience a sense of belonging.
As psychiatrist Alfred Adler pointed out, “Human behavior is purposive and it’s directed by goals to belong and feel significant”. He believed that each of us has an inborn impulse to contribute to the wellbeing of those around us.
We try to listen to each other and our children. We respectfully focus on solutions and share responsibility. We model all the skills we want our children to learn for the future.
Hello and welcome to Learning Tree Academy, or as our parents call it, Our Home Away From Home.
