A place to play, learn, and grow!
The Growing Tree Playcare & Preschool, a licensed home daycare, was founded in 2013 by Jessica Dixon and Alli Atterbury. Jessi and Alli met as toddlers in a home-based daycare on Mercer Island. They had such a wonderful daycare experience, it was always a dream to open a daycare of their own!
Jessi and Alli opened a second location in 2016. The Treehouse Playcare & Preschool is a private 4 hour preschool for children 2.5 to 5 years old.
Their mission is to provide a unique, enriching, and loving environment for children to thrive in. Both locations are Play and Nature-based while inspired by Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and Waldorf approaches.
Teaching and modeling compassion, respect, and empathy is at the root of our philosophy.
