child-developmentWe believe that all children are entitled to a clean, safe and healthy environment in which their atmosphere is secure and oriented to their care. We believe in the individuality and the special uniqueness of each child, the importance of providing developmentally appropriate activities that encourage development of mind and in participatory play as the most positive manner of learning. We also believe opportunities for optimal learning occur at the child’s own pace and in his or her unique style. We believe in positive discipline that is relevant, related and respectful; that establish consistent independence, interdependence, and responsibility through conflict resolution; and that enhance the child’s positive developing self-esteem and self-image preservation. Our goal is to always develop a respectful partnership with families. We value the many unique gifts we offer and we celebrate the diversity and the importance of establishing an atmosphere in which all people feel accepted and respected!

The Growing Tree Academy’s Core Philosophies

The Growing Tree’s core philosophy empowers children to make great choices by giving them the opportunity to succeed and enjoy their future in school. We encourage children to explore and progress at their own pace, in their own style. When your child learns and plays in this manner, he or she is empowered to learn and grow socially and intellectually. This is the distinction of including character education as part of our standards-based learning curriculum. Our teachers are highly trained, extremely attentive and enormously admired by the children in our facilities. The continuous training we provide for our staff always meets and often exceeds the standard for child-care. We require staff to participate in ongoing professional development programs to ensure their mastery of the standards-based curriculum education and early childhood learning skills. Our commitment is to the safety of your children. We never stop thinking about your child’s safety, so you don’t have to think twice about it. From background checks for every employee to much more, your child’s safety is our number one priority.

Our main concern is to have our children feel happy with themselves and others, and develop their natural intellectual interests. Each class offers instruction in the areas of reading, language arts, math concepts, science/technology, arts and crafts, outdoor play and music.

Investing in the future

The Growing Tree Academy’s Quality Early Education is an Investment in Our Future. The early years of a child’s life are a critical time for brain-development. A child’s initial experiences can have a positive impact on their ongoing development as well as brain connections that will last a lifetime. We know that high-quality early learning programs, which include research-based curriculum, highly-qualified teachers, study assessments and family engagement are essential to nurturing young children and their minds. The Growing Tree Academy’s vision is that all children will have access to the highest quality early care and education, so they can have the best possible start in school and in life. Our mission is to elevate the quality of early development care and beyond.
