Our Programs

Learning Tree Academy offers several programs for families seeking quality education and care for their children. With a range from infant daycare to elementary school age programs, there are different approaches within each classroom.

  • Infants and Toddlers – Your child will experience a variety of activities throughout the day including singing, reading books, sensory exploration, sign language, and expanding upon their vocabulary. Some of the goals the teachers are working on through daily activities include: identifying basic colors and shapes, identifying everyday objects with picture cues, increasing vocabulary, improving self-help skills like using utensils, sippy cups, etc., and social skills like sharing.
  • Preschool – Your children will experience activities that are hands-on and allow them to develop at their own pace. The different developmentally appropriate activities introduce them to many subject areas including math, science, social studies, health and safety, and language literacy.
  • Pre-K – our Pre-K program is a full day program in which the teachers utilize the curriculum to implement developmentally appropriate activities that are geared toward kindergarten readiness. The children will progress in areas of positive social skills, following directions, taking initiative in decision making skills, and creating a strong foundation in language and literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts.
  • Before and After Care – The school age program provides the children the opportunity to socialize, participate in center activities, and prepare for departure to school in the morning. In the afternoon, the children return from school and will be given time to work on homework with assistance from the teachers, enjoy outside time, and interact with their peers within a variety of activities. We provide transportation to and from several of the local schools in the Appoquinimink School District.
  • Summer Camp – During the summer, we provide educational and entertaining activities to give children an opportunity to have fun while they continue learning.

We would love to show you our school. Contact us today to set up a visit and let us show you why our school is so much more than daycare!!!

My children have been at this center 8 months now and I could not be more pleased with it. The teachers have been beyond wonderful and the directors are great. It's a very well run center. Before LTA we were at another center and had an absolute horrible experience. I was so hesitant to put my children back in daycare after that, but LTA restored my faith. I highly recommend them and I'm thrilled my children get to go here!

I could not have asked for a better place to send my children. The staff is absolutely wonderful, accommodating and creates such a safe yet fun place for my kids. My children enjoyed going to school everyday. The LTA really treated my kids as if they were family. They also were very reasonable and accommodating during this COVID-19 crises. I completely trust them with my children. If I could give them ten stars, I would. Sad we are moving away and we have to leave.
