Programs & Curriculums





 A good daycare and nursery school should provide a lot more than just a baby sitting service. We believe that the process of learning and acquiring knowledge begins soon after birth and continues through life. No child is too young for learning. At Learning Tree Academy, we have designed age-appropriate curricula 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, the end of each semester, to keep them abreast of their child’s achievements. A daily report, “What I Did Today”, is provided to inform the parents about their child’s daily activities.

All this teaching and developmental stimulation takes place in a loving, caring, playful and fun-filled environment where children truly enjoy their stay at the school and eagerly look forward to it each and every day.

We incorporate activities that not only provide a lot of fun, but stimulate his/her learning and create a positive self image and self esteem.

Our ultimate goal is the development of a well rounded child with characteristics of self confidence, independence, creativity, cognition and proper social skills.
Preschool classes and summer programs for children from infants up to 6 years old from Learning Tree Academy in Wood Ridge, New Jersey. Our daycare center is focused on early learning and childhood development. We want to be the safe fun place your children will love to go.


We offer a special curriculum for children at each level and provide progress reports and daily reports about how your child is developing. Our preschool classes provide a lunch program to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals and a playground to provide exercise for the children.
Safety for our children is one of the most important things we offer, we offer video cameras on site so you will know that your children are safe and well cared for.


Our field trips foster imagination and learning. We use a school bus to do a variety of field trips to help them experience new things. Some of the things we do are:
• Picnics in the Park
• Barbecues
• Sprinklers in the Summer


Learning Tree Academy provides special programs for music, Zumba, toddler yoga, fun bus computers. These programs go above what school systems require and provide a higher level of education for your children. We have special teachers that come in for each of these activities.


Our summer programs are designed for children to continue to learn in the summer but to have a fun time doing so. We have science days and hold workshops for the children. Many of our summer programs contain art and crafts. Some of the special days we have are:
  • Hawaiian Day
  • Crazy Hat Day 
  • Mad Science Workshops
  • Inflatable Bouncy Castle 
  • Pajama Parties
  • Sports Day
  • Magic Shows
Your child’s safety and security is of utmost importance to us. We have taken every possible step to insure the health, safety and security of the children in our school.
While strictly following the very stringent safety regulations of The State of New Jersey, we have gone far beyond that.
The state of the art security system protects the entire premises. An electronically controlled entry system limits the access into the building to only those personnel and parents who have been assigned a specific & individual pin code. The computer keeps accurate records of all such entries and exits.
No child is EVER released to anyone except the parents or an individual who has been previously authorized by the parents and has gone through a proper identification check.
Close circuit video cameras continuously monitor each and every classroom. The director of the center has the ability to monitor all classrooms simultaneously, either from her office on the premises, or from any remote location outside the school. Such constant monitoring optimizes the quality of care and further insures safety.
Our playground surface consists of the latest, safest and overall best material used for this purpose. Tests conducted by the Consumer Products Safety Commission show that this substance is 100-150% more effective than any other mulch, in preventing serious playground injuries.

Learning Tree Academy provides a safe, caring environment for the infants. In this environment, they can develop their motor and cognitive skills. The room has multiple shelving units with developmental toys for the children to explore. There is plenty of space for the children to begin their journey of independence by taking their first walking steps. They sing songs, listen to stories, and joyfully play games with the providers. They have comfortable, cozy, feel safe areas where they can just relax and enjoy quiet time. There is an open communication between parents and staff and all the parents questions and/or concerns are taken seriously and respectfully.



In the Toddler Room the children’s table and social manners are reinforced. Sharing and caring are operative words in that room as well as the magical words “please” and “thank you”. The children are taught to recognize letters, numbers, and shapes. All special projects are geared to enforce their learning potential. The children delight in their yoga and music classes as well as the many other special activities prepared for them. Weather permitting the children enjoy play time in a spacious, fenced-in yard. When the children cannot do outdoor activities, they have fun doing their indoor “toddlercises”.


The children enjoy Circle Time where they discuss the weather, calendar, and daily programs. They participate in activities that help to develop their fine motor skills. They have a great time enjoying the learning centers, dressing in costumes, and letting their imaginations take them to interesting places. The staff works very hard to help the parents potty train their children which is a major step in their developmental skills.


The children start the day with Circle Time where they are introduced to theme related concepts such as weather, the calendar, letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. 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.


The Pre-K4 class is the major stepping stone to Kindergarten. Our certified teacher taught Kindergarten and, therefore, has an excellent program which prepares the children for the tasks ahead. In the Pre-K4 class 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. In June, the children very excitedly prepare for their formal graduation. They look adorable in their caps and gowns as they process in the room to receive their diplomas during the graduation exercise program. The Pre-K4 has a challenging, fun, and rewarding program that the children love!
