Vision and Philosophy
The Learning Tree Teaching Team is an amazing group of educators, trained and guided by the vision and philosophy of Mr. Michael R. Severeid.
Toddler Tree is an early childhood program that provides developmentally appropriate practices to carry out a theme based curriculum in English, focusing on the developmental needs of young children. This is done under the supervision of degreed early childhood/child development specialists in a model setting.
Kinder Korner is also total English immersion and students learn primarily through the arts: music, stories, role-play and creative art.
Guided by experienced teachers, the children rotate to both indoor and an outdoor environment each day and receive quality, age appropriate instruction and guidance as they explore each learning area. Growth and development takes place through these uniquely designed learning centers: literacy (reading and writing), creative art, math, science & nature, music, dramatic play, sensory play, cooking, and discovery.
Play is an important aspect of early learning and at Kinder Korner, it is integrated throughout the class day. Teachers facilitate and motivate students, allowing students to build confidence, developmental skills, and core knowledge as well as helping them work in teams and establish healthy relationships… all necessary tools for future school success.
