All three of my children attended Learning Tree Preschool- LT has been such an important part of our lives for the past 7 years. For us, the staff were not just teachers, they felt like family and treated our kids with such love and respect throughout our time there. Even during the craziness of covid, LT was the constant in our life that kept our kid's learning on track and went above and beyond to ensure their safety and happiness each day. Now that our youngest is entering into kindergarten, we will miss the teachers and all the friends made at LT so much. We feel so grateful that we chose this little school to prepare our babes for elementary years. For anyone looking for the best of the best- look no further you have found it.

My daughter started at Learning Tree when she was 2.9yrs old and is now off to kindergarten in the fall. I feel so lucky to have found Learning Tree because Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Ali understand how critical a child's early years are in their learning and development. At Learning Tree, children are surrounded by a safe, caring environment that promotes an enthusiasm for learning. The curriculum is adaptive, well structured and consists of a wide variety of fun activities that promotes literacy and fundamental skills. At Learning Tree, children are surrounded by teachers that are patient, kind, knowledgeable, energetic and compassionate. They communicate with families so well regarding a child's individual needs and progress. Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Ali take the time to get to know each child. They understand how that child learns best and what that child needs (especially when they are trying to tackle their big emotions). They model appropriate behavior in a gentle and empathetic way. While doing all this, they still put effort into knowing what is happening in the students' lives outside of school. They truly feel like an extension of the family. When my daughter would walk up the stairs to school, excitedly telling her teacher what she did or what she loves to do, I knew she was walking into a bright, fun and caring environment that not only promoted her academic growth but emotional and social growth as well. She would be learning independence, socialization skills and beginning to form her identity all while tackling big feelings. I also knew that she was surrounded by genuinely kind people that wanted the best for her and were always available with a kind word or a much needed hug and as I would drive away, I knew there was no other place she ought to be.

We have been part of the Learning Tree family for 5 years and have loved every minute of it. We felt welcome at the Learning Tree from the moment we visited with our oldest. For us, a loving and caring environment was a top priority. Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly, and Ms. Ali care about every child in their care. They know them as people not just students. They know their favorite things, their favorite people, and their favorite hobbies. They respond to behavior challenges with compassion and support so children learn. They cultivate the social, and emotional growth of their students while also enabling them to make tremendous progress academically. I will never forget the support we all got arriving for my son's first day of school just one day after his baby sister was born. Two huge milestones all at once for him and Learning Tree gave him (and me) everything he (we) needed. My daughter, who is always attached to me, never, and I mean never, hesitated to walk confidently into the Learning Tree. It was the one place where she consistently felt safe to be away from me. We are so grateful to the Learning Tree and especially Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly, and Ms. Ali for what they gave our kids at such a critical stage in their development.

Words cannot being to express what an amazing experience the Learning Tree has been for my twins. After going to another school in Georgetown that we did not like, we found this gem of a preschool. Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly, and Ms. Ali not only teach the kids basic fundamentals, but they also teach them how to be respectful and good kids. You can tell that all three teachers care very deeply about every one of those kids, and I will be forever grateful for this experience. My daughter has cerebral palsy and they worked with her to help her "lefty" whenever possible. They also allowed her OT to come in to do some therapy. My son had a bit of a rough patch with his behavior. Ms. Kelli, Ms. Kelly, and Ms. Ali did not give up on him, only believed in him harder. Like I said, the care from these teachers go unmatched. I cannot thank them enough for what they did for my twins.

The learning tree preschool has served our family since 2019, when our son Was 2.5 years old. Since that first day We felt completely at ease knowing that our son was in the best of hands. Learning tree preschool is a close knit family network that pays close attention to each child’s individual needs. Our son was in EArly intervention, and Miss. Kelli and Miss Kelly were completely supportive in helping Our son through his speech and fine motor delay. Because of our positive experience we Now have our daughter at the preschool and she is excelling beautifully. Miss. Kelli and Miss. Kelly are extremely supportive and provide exceptional care and attention to our children. They both spend one on one time helping students who may need extra help. The kids come home with so many lovely projects and books that they have created on a weekly basis- the Learning Tree also offers a very structured learning environment - key to a preschool. We are so lucky to have The Learning Tree be a part of our family! -Burge Family

Our experience at Learning Tree Preschool has been incredible. Our son has shown growth in his confidence, social skills, and academic work. We are thrilled with the diverse and fun curriculum. There are awesome projects sent home and at the end of the school year, there is a journal, among many other pieces of work, that highlight the growth and learning progression. It is obvious how well the teachers know and work within each child’s skill level to help learning occur at all stages. As a parent there is nothing more comforting than to send your child to a safe, engaging, and welcoming environment that fosters all important areas of development. Our younger son will join his brother this fall at Learning Tree, and we could not be happier to have them both there.

I love seeing how happy my daughter is at the Learning Tree Preschool. She is so excited to go to school and be with her friends, and she absolutely adores Miss Kelli and Miss Kelly. When choosing a preschool it was important to us that there was both structured learning and free play. My daughter loves her daily routine, which involves circle time, play, art projects, structured learning and snack/lunch time. The kids do so many fun projects and learning activities – I can’t believe how many art projects my daughter comes home with, and she is so proud of all of them! They also put on several holiday shows and an end of year show, which are so fun for the kids and their families! I cannot express enough gratitude to Miss Kelli and Miss Kelly in helping influence my daughter in such a loving and positive environment. You can really see that attention is given to each child, and I’m certainly grateful that the teachers take one on one time with my daughter to help her develop skills, such as writing letters and numbers, counting, cutting, etc. in preparation for the kindergarten classroom. We also love the weekly newsletters detailing all of the week’s activities and events. I am confident that my daughter is getting the best preschool experience at the Learning Tree, and I’m looking forward to sending my son there next year.

Three years ago, I started on the journey of visiting area preschools to find the best fit for my daughter. Being an educator myself, I had a mental list of what I was looking for in a preschool -- warm, inviting, and child-centered with a focus on play and social skills. I visited and toured many area preschools --- but something was always missing -- they either felt too busy, too focused on academics, or too business-like. I was starting to worry I wouldn't find the right fit --that is until an old high school friend recommended Learning Tree Preschool to me. The moment I went for my visit and met Kelli Webster, I knew Learning Tree was it! Her warm smile and enthusiasm while meeting me and my daughter, Hannah, I knew this was the place for us. My daughter was a very shy 2.9 year old with a speech and gross motor delay. Under Miss Kelli and "Other Miss Kelly's" (as Hannah calls them) care, my daughter has BLOSSOMED into an outgoing and confident 5 year old who LOVES learning, school, and making new friends. Learning Tree's curriculum is child-centered, engaging, and creative. Each activity is carefully planned so that their little learners get a lot of practice and exposure to all of the necessary and essential pre-writing, pre-literacy, and early mathematical skills. The seasonal projects that they complete are amazing -- and are my absolute favorite! I have kept them all and decorate my house for all of the special holidays! Having Hannah's projects around the house every year brings a smile to my face. Miss Kelli and Miss Kelly also take the time to help the children make "special gifts" -- the ones that will be kept forever and passed on when my children venture out on their own.

I cant say enough about how much we love the Learning Tree. When we were looking for a preschool, it was a daunting task as we wanted a place that was nurturing and warm but we also needed it to be structured enough and up for the challenge of taking on three excitable triplet boys. We visited several preschools in the area but after touring the Learning Tree, we immediately knew it was the right fit. They do so many amazing art and learning projects and the holiday shows they have the kids put on are the absolute best! The Learning Tree has provided a safe, caring and fun environment that has really allowed my boys to thrive. My three are smiling and laughing from the moment they are greeted at drop off to the moment they are brought to the car at pick up. You can really see the time and effort that is spent planning age appropriate lessons and activities. My boys absolutely love their days at school. Additionally, their teachers Ms. Kelli and Ms. Kelly are amazing; they are so welcoming and have such a great presence around the kids and parents alike that I was at ease from the very first day. I always feel like they work with my boys and all of the kids as individuals, that Im well informed (through daily updates and the weekly newsletter) and that they are accessible. This school is so much more than just a preschool, it truly is a family.

I am so happy to share my experience with The Learning Tree Preschool in West Newbury. My twin girls are starting their third year in the fall. They have missed school greatly over the summer, even meeting their teacher for ice cream to hold them over until September. My kids are not unique in this way. The teachers at Learning Tree have created such a loving and homey environment that the children are thrilled to go to school and miss it on off days. The curriculum is very engaging. Surprising elements like yoga, Science Fridays and field trips keep the kids enthusiastic, resulting in a love of learning. Parents have the option of a two or three day program. Some families (including ours) can even opt for all 5 days. The teaching staff will work with you to find the perfect fit for you and your child. Our girls have grown by leaps and bound since beginning school and we have come to see the school as an extension of our family. When I arrived at the Learning Tree with my very tiny two-year olds in tow, I was struck with a sense of familiarity. The school reminded me of the preschool I had attended as I child. My typically shy kids wandered off to explore the colorful and tidy spaces and never looked back. If you are looking for a warm and nurturing environment for your child, consider The Learning Tree Preschool. We are so glad we did!

Our daughter has attended the Learning Tree Preschool since she was 2.9 years old. We originally chose Learning Tree because it offered exactly what she needed- a fun, safe place to learn and grow from a toddler into a pre-k child. 1.5 years later, this has been one of the best decisions we have made. Our daughter is thriving here and looks forward to school every day. One of the reasons we have found Learning Tree to be such a wonderful place is simply because of the two teachers, Miss Kelli and Ms Kelly. They are not only attentive to each child's needs on an individual basis, but also take such care in connecting with the children in the classroom as a whole. My daughter's communication skills have grown leaps and bounds since starting here. Additionally, they are just the sweetest two teachers around and really make you feel as though you are part of a family when you pick up/ drop off your child each day. We also really love the combination of free play/structured learning that takes place here. As much as we want our daughter to be fully prepared for the kindergarten classroom, we also want her to understand that life is not always a series of planned activities and she will need to tap into her creative side at times. We love that there are year-long projects that the children work on and books that they "learn in" so that we can see how far she has come each year. We also love our weekly newsletter with all of the week's happenings and upcoming events, and the holiday/end of year shows that the children orchestrate. Because our daughter loves Learning Tree and her teachers so much, we will most definitely be sending our two younger children here as well and will continue to share this gem of a school with everyone we know.

There is literally not one thing that we don't love about The Learning Tree. Miss Kelli and Miss Kelly are two of the most genuine, warm, and caring teachers I have ever known. The attention that they pay to each child is remarkable. They have made my daughter so comfortable in a situation that was initially quite scary for her...she is now thriving under their tender direction and learning more than we thought possible. This school has an intimate feel, like a family. The patience and commitment to seeing every child succeed makes me feel so happy as a mother and I know that my daughter is in the best possible hands when she's at school! It was unquestionably the right decision to send her to Learning Tree!

I love everything about Learning Tree Preschool! The staff is wonderful. They are seasoned educators who clearly love working with children. They are professional yet nurturing, kind and fun. The curriculum is creative and fun. Whether the children are learning a new yoga pose, experimenting for "Science Friday", or baking an apple pie - they always enjoy the lesson. The classroom atmosphere is friendly and open. Parents are always welcome to come and visit during school hours and often do to read to the children, help with special activities, or enjoy one of the many special performances the children put on. There is a weekly newsletter that details the events of the week. It's a great way to learn about what the children did each week as well as to prepare for upcoming activities/lessons. Learning Tree provided the perfect preschool experience for my sons. I highly recommend Learning Tree for anyone in the area looking for a preschool program.

This September marked the beginning of our third year at Learning Tree Preschool. Our son is in his third year and our daughter started her first year. They truly love it! They both go to school with a smile, excited for a wonderful day, and they both come home with a smile, having had fun learning and playing with friends. When touring preschools a few years back, we instantly felt at home with the Learning Tree. The space is perfect for young minds and creative imaginations. Our children come home with the best craft projects! They are also learning so much in this warm and supportive environment. Our son is already reading on his own! We love the weekly notes detailing what has happened each day. The teachers are so loving and truly exceptional with the children. You can see the love and care they have for the children in their smiles and hugs and how they love to share a funny story or accomplishment. We feel so lucky to be a part of the Learning Tree family . . . and with a recent new addition to our family, we look forward to more years to come!

We could not be happier with our decision to send our son to Learning Tree! Last year he attended another preschool and although he "liked" it once he was there, every morning he'd say he rather stay home. Now at Learning Tree he LOVES school days, can't wait to go, and hops right out of the car with a big smile on his face. And every day at pick up he's smiling from ear to ear and tell us what a great day he had. While he was adjusting to this new school each one of the teachers went above and beyond to make him feel special and safe. Everyone took the time to really get to know him so they could make him feel comfortable. After lots of tears the first two days, Miss Kelli followed up with a call to me after drop off to let me know he was ok-which means the world to any mom! But those tears very quickly disappeared and soon he was jumping out of the car to see wonderful teachers and friends! In addition to their obvious love of children the school itself is warm, bright and inviting! And their day to day activities are fantastic! From yoga to artwork, music, and our favorite...science Fridays! Also the shows that they put on are great! The teachers put so much thought and creativity into every thing they do! There is nothing better than to see our son so happy and thriving at school and we look forward to our younger children attending Learning Tree as well!
