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!

We could not be happier with our choice to send our son to Learning Tree! It is a special, one of a kind place. The space itself is bright, friendly and inviting! The teachers are truly special! Our son attended another school for his first year of preschool and although he didn't dislike it, he was never really excited to go and was always happy on his days to stay home. Now at Learning Tree he can't wait for school days and wakes up every morning and asks if he gets to school that day! Initially there were lots of tears with the first few drop offs, but each one of the teachers really took the time to make him feel special so he'd feel comfortable and safe. They really make each child feel special. With the first two drop offs being especially difficult, Miss Kelli always followed up with a phone call to let me know he was doing ok. Now he hops right out of the car with a quick kiss! The activities they do at school are exceptional! From those to music, yoga, and science Friday the kids are always learning and having fun. We have also really enjoyed the shows that the kids have put on! You can tell just how much each of the teachers loves what they by how much thought and creativity goes into every day! To see our son genuinely love school so much is priceless! We look forward to our two younger children also going to Learning Tree!

We have had such a wonderful experience with Learning Tree Preschool. This is our third year with the school and both of our children love it there. The teachers are so kind and treat our children like they are their own. As a result, both of my children have had amazing first experiences in going to school. Whether it's something new they learned during "Science Friday" or a new Yoga move they perform for me when they get home, I know my children are learning and having so much for while doing so. I can't say enough great things about the Learning Tree Preschool and all of their teachers.

I sent my daughter to Learning Tree preschool for 2 years and was extremely happy with all aspects of the school. Initially I had signed her up with another program but my gut was telling me something wasn't right, so I decided to check out Learning Tree after another Mom had recommended it. From the moment I entered the school for the first visit it just "felt right". The physical space is open, sunny and welcoming. The staff is wonderful. Miss Kelli, Miss Kelly and Miss Lisa love the kids and truly get to know them and care about them. They were always patient and professional. I was particularly impressed with the teacher: student ratio. Having adopted my daughter at the age of 2 1/2 from China, she was struggling with language issues and I knew communication would be a problem for her, but knowing there would be a 1:4 teacher to student ratio her first year helped me to feel more comfortable. After our first year at Learning Tree in the 2 day program we moved up to East Kingston, NH. Despite a 25 minute drive each way, we decided to keep our daughter at Learning Tree because she loved it and I couldn't imagine sending her anywhere else. It was worth it to keep her there as she had a great year. I highly recommend the school for their warm, personalized and professional program.

After having an unpleasant experience at a previous preschool, followed by numerous tours searching for a new school, we discovered Learning Tree. From the moment I walked into the building, it just felt right. The space is warm and inviting and gives off a certain lightness and home-like feel. The setting is quaint with a protected, fenced-in outdoor play area. The skilled teachers are all mothers themselves, which is reflected in the loving and caring way they interact with the children. They understand how difficult it can be for a child and parent to be separated for their first school experience; they respectfully consider these feelings and are very accommodating in making the transition into school as stress free as possible for both the child and the parent. As a result, my older son who had separation anxiety to start with, transitioned into Learning Tree immediately and effortlessly. He is presently a second grader in public school, yet he still speaks fondly of the two years he spent at Learning Tree. Now, three years later, my youngest son attends Learning Tree and is having an equally rewarding experience. I feel completely comfortable leaving my sons in the care of this amazing team of teachers. The children’s’ days are full of wonderful activity: learning letters, writing names, Science Fridays, a variety of lovely art projects, story telling and music, mixed in with time for free play. I really appreciate the drop-off/pick up procedure at Learning Tree as compared to other schools as well. At Learning Tree, you drive right up to the door and a smiling teacher greets your child at your car and walks him or her directly into the school for you. You never even have to get out of the car! This may seem like a trivial feature, but it really was a bonus for me not to have to take my sleeping younger son out of his car seat and into the frigid winter weather to walk my older son in and out of the school. Additionally, I feel like there is good communication between staff and parents at Learning Tree. A weekly newsletter informs you of your child’s activities and any important notices, in addition to the daily face time you get with teachers during drop off and pick up. The whole school environment feels very intimate and child-centered. Learning Tree Preschool is truly a gem!

After 30 years of being a professional nanny for many families - I've come full circle, now being "gg" (grandmother:) with two grandchildren of my own to care for:) - I couldn't be more pleased to have my first and now second grandchild attend this school. Miss Kelly, Miss Kelli and Miss Lisa are a treat to see each time we drive all the way up to the door:) My grandson likes to guess who will walk up the stairs with him each day:) Children and parents are welcomed with a smile and a bit of hint of what the morning will bring:) They are all caring and very understanding of both the parents and the childrens feelings, making drop off less anxious for all involved - I've watched each teacher attend to the children at eye level and with attentive listening - thats magic for me:)The colorful artwork and adventures through stories and song is music to my ears:) For me this is a well rounded space for learning and caring - what a great first step into the big world:)

Our third child will be entering the Learning Tree in the fall which will begin our fifth year at the Learning Tree. Our experience with our other two children couldn't have been better. Our first had a hard time going to school but the teachers at the Learning Tree couldn't have been more comforting and wonderful helping him with the transition. Our second can't wait for "school days" and loves every minute of school. The teachers are warm and exceptional with the kids. The projects are so cute and appropriate for the age group. There is a focus on getting ready for kindergarten and as a result my son was well prepared. We look forward to three more wonderful years at the Learning Tree!

Kelli Webster and her staff of dedicated teachers at the Learning Tree provided both of our children with happy, fun-filled preschool years. Attending this quality preschool was such a joy for my children; they still talk about how much they loved it at the Learning Tree. They jumped out of the car every morning with huge smiles on their faces and hopped back in at the end of the day with the same smiles. The staff was so creative and nurturing. We still display the wonderful, wall-worthy artwork and projects our children created at the Learning Tree. To feel loved and safe while learning was a wonderful introduction to education, and both of my children are thriving in elementary school thanks in part to their positive experience at the Learning Tree.

My daughter LOVES preschool! She would go every day if she could. I was someone who considered never sending my children to school and now I would never keep them away. Her excitement is all I need to see. She is a shy girl and has really come out of her shell with help from her amazing teachers! She has made wonderful friends, as have I, and is learning more than I imagined she would. She has become more confident. the musical shows they put on in front of the family audience has helped her with that. I could go on forever but all in all the Learning Tree has surpassed my expectations and I'll be sad that my daughter's time there is ending but excited that my son will get to experience the school in the Fall :-)

My son spent his first few years at a large child care center and when we moved to the area, we started him mid-year at learning tree. What a HUGE difference it was - they welcomed him with such warmth and understanding, it made the transition seamless. My son blossomed during his two years at Learning Tree and he was absolutely prepared and excited for kindergarten. I am so grateful for the start they gave him, and I look forward to my daughter starting there in the fall.
