Our School Philosophy

Our objective is to prepare the child for life. The Learning Tree will give each child a strong basis for developing habits, skills, and positive attitudes that will stay with him/her throughout life. We want to help the child to have a love and respect of self and others, and to help develop a joy, curiosity, and enthusiasm for learning. We want him/her to become a flexible person who can cope and adjust, who knows how to think, to be creative, problem solve, to make decisions, to be independent, and to develop self-discipline. The environment of The Learning Tree is designed to be developmentally appropriate for the children. This takes into account the age appropriateness, as well as individual appropriateness of activities.
