Premier, Personalized Care with a family feel

When you walk in the doors of a Learning Tree Center, you feel something special happening.  Each child is paired with a Primary Caregiver who focuses on the individual needs of each child on a daily basis.  The Primary Caregivers are responsible for the daily emotional, physical and academic needs of your child and provide consistent communication with parents.  Individualized attention to the child, along with a strong commitment to open communication with parents demonstrates The Learning Tree Child Care Centers dedication to providing well-rounded care that helps each child develop to his or her greatest potential.

The Learning Tree directors are a group of professional individuals with an average of over 24 years of experience in child care.  Each director strives to stay current in the field by annually participating in various forms of continuing education.  Hiring, training and supporting the staff is a responsibility that is taken very seriously and the directors at each center do their best to see that the caregivers and teachers are more than qualified to care for your child.
