Our Preschool Program for Ages Three to Five Prepares Your Child For Success!
The Learning Tree preschool program is designed to prepare your child for school and encourage a lifetime of learning. This program runs during our regular hours of operation, from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. Your child can attend all or part of the day.
NEW!! We are offering a new program for our preschoolers including FREE Karate, Yoga, Gymnastics, and Zumba!!
We utilize the Illinois Early Learning Standards to prepare your child for school. These standards lay out very specific goals for children of this age group. These goals are set to pave the way for success in kindergarten and beyond.
The Learning Tree has lots of fun things to do!
The preschool program goals are also there to help them prepare for life in general, with character building and self awareness. To meet these goals, we use the Reggio Project Approach, Scholastic and Creative Curriculum. These curricula have been proven to teach children all they should learn during these important years. This is done through both group activities and individual work.
In addition to the core basics that need to be taught to this age group, The Learning Tree offers computer activities to get children used to using technology in a fun and learning environment. These computer activities teach them how to use a keyboard and mouse, and the learning games teach them core basics as well.
The Learning Tree teachers have created extensive lessons on character development, specifically fairness, responsibility, respect and trustworthiness.
Social skills are also taught, such as how to successfully get along with others and resolve conflict. Our comprehensive curriculum even includes introductory Spanish, as well as an emphasis on fitness.
Life long friendships are built daily at The Learning Tree!
