YMCA Learning Tree Preschool
Your children are our future
Learning Tree Preschool provides quality, child-centered classrooms that encourage children to learn, flourish, and grow. Learning Tree offers a rich variety of activities including free and facilitated play, problem solving, and group time. Through these activities, children gain the skills necessary for cognitive, language, physical, and social/emotional development.
Each of our classrooms are staffed with two experienced and qualified lead teachers. We provide low child to teacher ratios and offer lots of close and individualized attention for our students. Learning Tree promotes achievement in the classroom by encouraging exploration and experimentation. We are dedicated to giving children the tools to make choices and problem solve on their own, skills necessary for long term school success.
We teach in accordance with the early childhood education quality standards set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and are licensed through the Michigan Department of Human Services. Our nurturing and supportive atmosphere welcomes and celebrates the diversity of all children in the community – We invite you to learn more about us and to visit our classrooms soon.
Welcome to Learning Tree!
All of Learning Tree is ready to begin another school year full of enthusiasm and excitement! Our talented and dedicated teachers have been busily preparing the classrooms for all of our students, new and old. We cannot wait to get started, reunite with friends, and welcome new faces to our outstanding program.
We are filled with many hopes and dreams for your children this 2014-2015 school year. We cannot wait to expand all of the children’s’ horizons through our rich programming and curriculum.
We are very honored that you chose Learning Tree to begin your child’s educational journey. We strongly believe that parents are their children’s primary teachers! Families are always welcome to join us in the classroom and actively participate in their children’s preschool day. Your children are very special people, and we thank you for your willingness to share them with us this school year. We welcome and value your suggestions and input, and can’t wait to begin the school year with all of you.
At this time, we would also like to extend an invitation to you to join our COPs (Committee of Parents) board and participate in our numerous fundraising activities. This is a wonderful way to meet other families at Learning Tree and help the preschool out at the same time. The COPs meet once a month, usually on the fourth Monday of the month, at 6:30 pm in Preschool Room A. All are welcome!
Best wishes for a fun filled and terrific school year!
Sincerely – Miss Meredith
