Thank you for your interest in Green Trees Early Childhood Village. At this time we expect to be fully enrolled for the 2017-18 school year. The 2018-19 application will be available on August 20, 2017 along with Learning tour dates for the fall and online sign up.
Mission
Green Trees’ mission is to develop children’s ability to think critically and creatively in a safe, stimulating and rigorous learning environment.

Through interaction with a highly engaging curriculum, Green Trees children deepen the roots of character and grow towards readiness for lifelong learning.

A Green Trees education fosters both cognitive and social-emotional learning that is developmentally appropriate for the child. Green Trees will prepare children for Newman Pre-K.

Guiding Principles

Connection – We believe that children make meaning and construct knowledge by connecting to a highly engaging learning environment that kindles their sense of curiosity and discovery. We regard the relationship between a child and caregiver as the most foundational and powerful connection that leads to Child Well-Being.

Community  We believe that children learn best when learning with and through others. We create opportunities for optimal engagement and collaborative problem solving that amplify children’s growth and development.

Constant Learning  We believe that children need multiple attempts to master complex and challenging skills. We foster an inner scaffolding of development that builds independent, self-directed learning, and resilience.
