Welcome to The Growing Tree Playcare & Preschool!

We now have 3 schools on the same street, The Growing Tree,  The Treehouse, and our new Pre-K Branch of Treehouse!

Our home daycare, The Growing Tree, was established in 2013 and provides full time, part time, and drop in care for infants through children 5 years old 7am-5:30pm Monday through Friday. 

 

The Treehouse, our part-time private preschool, opened in September 2016! The Treehouse offers a 4 hour preschool and pre-k program 1 to 5 days per week, as well as drop in playcare, for children 2.5 to 5 years old. Parents can choose any 4 hour block between 8am and 4:45pm Monday through Friday.

Our new Pre-K branch of Treehouse is now enrolling 4 and 5 year olds and is located right next door to Treehouse! Although still play and nature based, this program is developmentally geared towards older children and focuses on kindergarten readiness skills using the Reggio-Emilia approach. 

 

All locations have open enrollment throughout the year and children do NOT have to be potty-trained.

Our New Pre-Kindergarten Branch

We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Treehouse! Our Pre-K annex will be opening in September, 2019 and is now enrolling children who will be four and five years old by September. This program is specifically geared towards the older children, preparing them both academically and socially for kindergarten. Treehouse's Pre-K branch is play and nature based and is inspired by Reggio-Emilia, Montessori, and Waldorf approaches, as are our other two locations. 

Established in 2013 by Jessi and Alli who met at a home daycare as toddlers! The Growing Tree is a home away from home for infants through preschoolers. Our goal is to create a loving and compassionate environment for your child to thrive in and enjoy their childhood years. 

A branch of The Growing Tree, opened by Alli and Jessi in 2016. The Treehouse is a play and nature based preschool inspired by Reggio Emilia, Waldorf, and Montessori approaches. 

Jessi and Alli met at a home daycare as children and always dreamed of opening their own daycare and preschool so that more children could have the same wonderful experience they had growing up. Learning through play, spending time exploring nature, and spreading compassion are some of the core values of The Growing Tree and Treehouse. Every moment can be a learning opportunity, especially in the right environment. We believe in "child-centeredness" and that learning should be internally motivated. Children are always encouraged to participate in activities, but never forced to do anything they do not want to do.

Between the two schools, we offer full time schedules, as well as half days, a few days a week, and drop-in care. We are open through the summer, have open enrollment year round, and children do not have to be potty trained!
