Welcome to Learning Tree Cooperative Preschool!
Thank you for your interest in our program—we’re delighted to have your child join us for a year full of new and exciting preschool experiences! Learning Tree Cooperative Preschool provides an enriching early childhood program for children from ages 2-5 under the direction of highly qualified teachers, aides and assistance by cooperating parents. We are a non-profit organization, licensed by the State of Michigan and are proud to be 5 STAR rated with the Michigan Great Start To Quality Program. We are a member of the Midland County Great Start Collaborative and have been a partner with them in providing an enriching preschool experience to many qualifying students over the past several years.
Our caring staff are all certified in First Aid and CPR and log more than the required number of professional development hours annually for licensing. They are dedicated to provide a loving and caring environment for children where they feel safe, secure and ready to play and learn.
During the school year, children will experience the fun and enjoyment of learning in all curriculum areas using the Creative Curriculum program and ongoing opportunities with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). Literacy activities, puzzles, games, music and movement and outdoor play also enrich our day! Both individual and group opportunities help the children to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually and also help them develop positive social skills such as cooperation, problem solving, negotiating, self-control and coping skills with their peers. Staying for lunch is a highlight of their day and helps prepare them for the all-day kindergarten program.
We look forward to getting to know your family and growing with your child over the next year!
