Mission Statement Children's Tree House will operate under the understanding that children need to be treated with warmth and respect. The children served by Children's Tree House especially need experiences that will foster physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth. The atmosphere at Children's Tree House will be a caring environment to encourage independence, constructive problem solving, positive self-esteem, and improved self worth.
Philosophy Here at Children's Tree House Preschool & Childcare we believe that each child is a worthy individual endowed with unique capabilities and talents. Our warm loving environment will give children a place that encourages learning, creativity, personal growth, and a fun environment where they will feel safe and secure. We will help the children build trust with the teachers who care for them, so they will feel secure in knowing that they are loved and wanted, and they will receive the appreciation, respect, and acceptance children strive for. Our program is designed to prepare children ages six weeks to six years with the social and academic skills they need such as sharing, listening, letters, numbers, etc. We will enrich our classes with art, games, music, free play, and much more. All of our activities and equipment will be acceptable only at the highest level of safety. We have designed our activities to allow for plenty of physical movement, as well as healthy meals and snacks, along with a learning environment of sharing and playing together, where activities stimulate the mind. We will provide an atmosphere that is child-oriented, so children are able to develop at a pace meeting their individual needs. We will establish routines that children can cope with and understand. We ensure that infants receive individual feedings and attention, auditory and visual experiences, and most importantly a lot of cuddling with secure and warm relationships.

Testimonials Our family joined Children’s Tree House over 2 1/2 years ago and we just added our second child to the Tree House family. It was such a leap of faith in the beginning trusting our baby to a daycare and just hoping everything would be okay. Little did we now that the typical “daycare” label wouldn’t truly apply since it seems more than that each and everyday. Watching and knowing how much my child is loved by not only his teacher, but many teachers, if not all the teachers at the center... is the best feeling as a parent. Hearing daily stories, watching my child grow into a fun, smart and social toddler has made us all the more comfortable with our second baby starting recently. We thank the center and staff tremendously for helping our children grow and being such a huge part of our lives.-The Knadle Family
Our family has been with Children’s Tree House since the fall of 2017. From the moment we toured the facility and met teachers throughout the building, we knew this center was going to be a great fit for our family. Children’s Tree House has made us feel welcomed from the moment we started. All of the teachers were friendly, made it a point to know our child, and worked to build a positive relationship with us even if our son hadn’t been in their room yet! Each day we are amazed by the growth our son has made academically and socially. His teachers have helped him develop great friendships, instill a desire to learn and explore, and have helped him grow into an independent toddler. With the use of the Brightwheel app, we have been able to stay more connected with the center on a daily basis through the daily updates, pictures, and videos shared through the app. The center has provided us with a great experience, and we feel so blessed that our second child will be able to become a part of the Children’s Tree House family in the future. -The Wrobel Family
We started at Children’s Tree House in the summer of 2016. We wanted to enroll our daughter to take advantage of their 4K program. Our daughter was very sad to leave our other daycare and was having a hard time transitioning. They helped us so much with that transition from Jackie answering all of our questions, giving us a tour and letting our daughter spend some time with the other children and teacher she would be having when she started. From the first day she started things went so smooth. They welcomed us like family and our daughter had a blast from all of the field trips, to the fun activities, and she thrived with the 4K program. We now have our second child enrolled in Children’s Tree house in the infant room. Like any mom with a new baby I had lots of apprehension leaving my baby but we were able to tour again, meet with the teachers, and the stress of it all went away. Every single teacher is so caring, loving and treats her like their own child. I leave every single day and don’t worry about her. We love the brightwheel app that is available. I know how she is doing and love seeing the pictures they send me. Children’s Tree house is an amazing daycare and we are very fortunate to be able to attend.-Tracy Puljas
Olivia and Mia started to attend children Tree house in 2017. Olivia was 2 years old and Mia was just a baby. My wife and I used to be skeptical of day care centers because we were used to a lovely in home daycare. But from the first day that we met with Children Tree house staffs, my wife and I knew that CTH was a place we would love for Olivia and Mia be a part of. To us it was more about trusting the people carrying for our daughters until they are able to go to school. We found that trust at CTH. What we love about CTH are family atmosphere, carrying professionals and the spirit of working as one team. From Natasha to all the teachers, their engagement with our daughters and all the kids at CTH is just excellent. They organize fun field trips for kids that are older and do a very good job keeping the kids engaged. We are impressed with the improvement we have seen in both Olivia and Mia and the credit goes to CTH. My wife and I work full time and our daughters spend most of their day at CTH and they always love it. In fact now at home, they have been mimicking their teachers which is a great example to follow. Thank you to all CTH staffs for carrying for all the kids and we know that it is not easy to care for those little ones but you make it seems easy. Keep up a great work and I will not hesitate to refer a friend to CTH.- Mr. Mpemwangi
