Preschool

3 – 5 years

Love to Learn

At Learning Tree Academy, we have designed an age-appropriate curriculum to stimulate each child’s cognitive, motor, social and communicative development. A specially designed progress report tracks such development and sets goals for the staff and the students. The parents receive these progress reports twice a year, at the end of each semester, to keep them abreast of their child’s achievements. You continue to receive updates through the Daily Connect app about your child’s projects in class.  

Self-Care Skills

Learning self-care and follow directions are important parts of child development. At this age, our kids start participating in creating their own routine charts.  It promotes their inner self-worth and encourages them to actually follow through. The children learn more advanced problem-solving by being in charge of making decisions about the necessary adjustments and taking responsibility for that.  

Raising Healthy Eaters

In our academy, we encourage parents to participate in our amazing lunch program. We work with Simply Gourmet Caterers company that provides our children and staff with healthy and tasty meals. The food is nutritious, delicious, and child-friendly.  You can choose from a variety of options for your little one. The choices will please even the pickiest eater. Products are nut-free, with no additives or artificial ingredients, limited GMO, and comes from farm to table, all year round. Of course, all food is thoughtfully prepared and individually packaged in a clean facility to ensure the safety of our children.

Enrichment Classes

Learning Tree Academy provides special programs, such as Music, Yoga, Zumba. These programs go above what school systems require and provide a higher level of education for your children. We have specialists that come in for each of these activities.

    They work on many different activities to reinforce their work habits, listening skills, and social and emotional skills. They exercise their minds in the computer classes and their bodies in the Zumba classes.

    Happy Transition

    Our Pre-K3-4 class is the major stepping stone to Kindergarten. We follow an excellent program that prepares the children for the tasks ahead. In the Pre-K3-4, the children not only work on their academic curriculum, but they also focus on their self-reliance skills, reading and math readiness skills, and listening and speaking skills as well. Kids love our challenging, fun, and rewarding program!

    In June, our four-year-olds are very excitedly preparing for their formal graduation. They look adorable in their caps and gowns as they parade to receive their diplomas during the graduation ceremony.

    What Our Families are Saying

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do you keep the building secure?

    At Learning Tree Academy, we believe the same level of safety and security expertise that protects The President should be called upon to keep your child safe. That is why we partnered with SEC, a company owned and operated by former US Secret Service Agents, to help us take our safety and security to the highest level possible. SEC is a group of highly-skilled security and protection experts. The SEC team specializes in analyzing facilities, developing Emergency Preparedness Plans, and preparing faculty and staff to appropriately confront emergencies of all kinds.

    What happens if my child needs medication?

    We will ask you to fill out a special medication form with all the necessary information we need to administer the medication for your child. Medications should be in their original packaging and must be prescribed to the child.

    What do you do about food allergies?

    We will ask you to fill out the allergy form for your child and will make any accommodations necessary to keep your baby safe with us. 

    What happens if my child becomes ill at school?

    Our children's wellbeing is our top priority. If your child becomes ill, has a very high fever, vomiting, has diarrhea, or is exhibiting any other symptoms of a contagious illness, you will be notified and asked to pick the child up. In cases requiring medication, we ask that the child only returns to our care after finishing medication and 24 hrs fever-free. Illnesses are dealt with on a case by case basis.
