What our parents are saying

"This is my child’s first year at Children’s Learning Tree and I have been blown away with the academic rigor, organization, and community atmosphere that this school provides."

"I am comfortable and confident sending my budding sprout to school each day that I am giving him the best opportunity to learn and grow both academically and socially."

"Our daughter has been at CLT since she was two and a half. She has thrived each year with great teachers and a solid curriculum!"

"The directors of CLT are hands-on and committed to excellence not only in our children’s academic endeavors, but also in their life skills, character education and creativity."

"Our daughter is a smart, happy, joyful student who loves attending CLT!"

"I am well pleased with the education, and care my son has received/is receiving during the last few years at Children’s Leaning Tree (CLT)."

"The educators are warm, nurturing and extremely knowledgeable in Pre-School Education."

"It brings me great joy to see my son’s enthusiasm about learning, and the progress he has made."

"In my eyes, putting my son in CLT was/is an investment in which my son is most certainly reaping the rewards!"

"After meeting the administrative directors, touring the school facilities and learning about the curriculum we felt our child could learn a lot academically and thrive socially in the CLT environment."

"CLT was the best choice for our child because of the diverse make-up of the school and small class sizes with lots of personal attention and encouragement."

"Our child has really learned to listen, focus and how to participate in a true classroom environment before attending formal schooling. Academically, my child enjoys learning and the challenges the school provides. "

We’d say if you want your child to have fun, grow and learn in a safe, caring environment then CLT should be the top choice on your list. We don’t think your child could be more prepared for a classroom environment than after being at CLT."

High Quality Care!

At Children's Learning Tree we  believe children learn best in a nurturing, self-exploratory, diverse and purposeful environment. Children are encouraged to explore their unique abilities and freely celebrate their cultures and ethnicities.
We  believe in providing a culture of inclusivity.

We believe in providing parents helpful resources for best parenting practices. Developmentally Appropriate Practice drives our teaching practices. Our teachers are actively mentored and coached in order to ensure the best delivery of instruction to the children.

We believe the foundation for learning should be both active and stimulating.  Therefore our curriculum is lead by respected early childhood theory and methods.  Teachers design authentic activities that facilitate social and emotional, cognitive, language, fine motor and gross motor skills.  These foundational skills build self-reliant, self-assured, responsible individuals who are prepared for primary school.

Our philosophy is embedded in the notion that the interaction between teacher, child and parent(s) is the cornerstone to a healthy early education experience.  We welcome and encourage parents to share their unique talents and abilities.  Parent involvement as well as a developmentally appropriate curriculum is key to children’s success in early learning and understanding how  to navigate  the world around them.

Our teachers meet all required state qualifications. We maintain a highly trained teaching staff that strives daily to create a caring and nurturing atmosphere that fosters each child’s creativity and positive self-image.
