HOW WE TEACH
Our Experiential School Program
Our preschool through 1st-grade program is one inspired by Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio philosophies.
We offer a quality learning program that provides children ages 3-7 and potty trained and parents with the opportunity to learn and grow within a community of support and love.
When The Tree House first opened its doors in December of 2011, owner Tanya Jennings main priority was meeting the needs of children and their families. Our space served families as an indoor play space and resource center. The need for more quality school programs led Tanya to begin a small preschool program in the summer of 2012. The program was full with a waiting list in less than 48 hours. Since then, the program has blossomed into one that serves more than 30 families.
Children are encouraged to learn through exploration and real-world experiences. Our students receive yoga, music, science, art, Spanish, and lots of outdoor/nature education and exploration time. Our program is 9am-1pm, M-F. Please contact us to schedule a time to visit
Our mission is to provide families with a safe and engaging place to play and learn together. Kiddos will be excited to play here, and parents will have the satisfaction of knowing that their children are having fun in meaningful ways. We also strive to offer parents the latest and most developmentally appropriate parenting information so that they become facilitators of growth!
It is the philosophy of The Tree House Community School that children are encouraged to learn and grow by engaging in developmentally appropriate and meaningful experiences.
Our priority is to provide a safe and nurturing space where all children can succeed. We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our child-directed preschool through 1st-grade program provides inclusive settings that recognize children’s varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles.
We believe children learn best through meaningful Play and work. Our Montessori and Waldorf inspired and child-centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas for the holistic development of the child. Meaningful work and play encourage curiosity, discovery, and problem solving which allows the growth and development of a positive self-image.
We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the bond between family and community.
