Our mission at Learning Tree Cooperative Preschool is to provide every child with a quality early childhood experience. We believe that education is a partnership between parents and teachers. We encourage problem solving in a loving, safe, play-based environment that develops confidence and fosters independence. This foundation for learning is cultivated by highly educated and caring teachers in a positive atmosphere. Through play and creative problem solving, exposure to literacy, math and science fundamentals are introduced and socialization skills are nurtured. We believe in empowering children by providing an atmosphere that allows children to learn by doing through concrete, hands-on experiences. Our priority is to provide a program that reflects the needs and goals of children and families.
A non-profit, parent-run organization, licensed by the State of Michigan. St. John's Episcopal Church graciously contributes the use of the facilities, but the operation of the preschool is solely the responsibility of the parents and teacher. Thus the word “Cooperative” is included in our title – as cooperation between parents and teachers is essential.
