Message from the Board
Dear Growing Tree Families:
After much consideration and with great sadness, the Board of Directors of Growing Tree has decided to close the TreeHouse permanently, effective on Sept. 1, 2016.
Please know that the Board of Directors did not come to this decision lightly. Several months ago the Board learned of potential changes to the lease of the building on Kearney Avenue that could affect the long-term stability of the TreeHouse. With the support and partnership of the Board, Tammy worked to remedy the stability issue and explored new, sustainable options for the TreeHouse. Unfortunately, she found few satisfactory alternatives.
At the core of the issue was respect and consideration for families and staff, as well as continued commitment to Growing Tree's mission of providing affordable, high-quality developmental programs for children.
As September approaches, Tammy will be evaluating and projecting staffing in the main center in an effort to reduce staff displacement as a result of the TreeHouse closure. Growing Tree is committed to minimizing the burden of this change on the staff.
Many children in the TreeHouse are slated to head to kindergarten in September. For those families that will have to find child care as a result of the closure, we are truly sorry. Families with children in the main center rooms (Seedling, Big Seed, Sprout, Bud, Branch, Blossom) should not be affected by the TreeHouse closure.
Growing Tree Board of Directors
