We believe that every child is unique and will grow at his or her own pace. Our teachers spend time nurturing children’s strengths and encouraging them to reach new heights. We are structured differently than many early childhood education programs in that we feel playtime is essential for our children's development.  We find that at this age, social skills are the most important lesson.  Once children learn how to behave, they are more apt to listen, leading to a more condusive learning environment and a higher teachability.  

Learning through Play

Here our roots run deep

Welcome to The Giving Tree Learning Center.  It is our mission  to exceed parents’ expectations for providing the best care next only to yours.  We believe that life is shaped by relationships.  We feel a deep obligation to our community and seek to create relationships that enhance your children to prepare them for the highest success possible in life.  We promote self-esteem and nurture their individual gifts.  We commit to  promoting individualism with an emphasis on positive reinforcement as motivation to help your child attain his or her highest potential. We understand that you live in this wonderful community to experience a higher standard of living.  We want you to feel that our care for your young person is of those same standards.  We like picky parents!  Your recommendations are encouraged and your concerns are never a burden.


Our Preschool has closed her doors as of September 30 2014.  We deeply apologize as it would have been our pleasure to serve your family with the peace of mind of having the best care possible for your precious child.
