       The Learning Tree, located in Palm Bay, Florida, was established  in 1989.  I received my degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from William Paterson University in New Jersey.  I believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing.   I believe that in a safe environment  children will explore and grow.  The philosophy of the school is that children learn by Construction rather than Instruction. 
     At The Learning Tree, we provide and encourage hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development and success for all children.  Literacy Development is at the core of our curriculum and as research shows it is the foundation for all future learning. We believe that a child who begins his/her educational experience in a school which encourages independence, self-control, creativity and imagination will be most successful in both primary and secondary school years. 
    Everyone on our staff has the same goal - to provide a warm caring environment and to support the social, emotional and physical development of each child.   Children learn best through PLAY and when they are having fun! 

    At The Learning Tree we recognize that you have a difficult schedule and we support parents the best we can. We offer early morning care and evening pick-up so that your schedule can be accommodated. We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents. We strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands. 
    All of our teachers pass a rigorous screening and fingerprinting process. We are licensed and GOLD SEAL Accredited in Florida. Our VPK teachers are certified and our other lead teachers have advanced degrees in chil
d development.
