Our goal at Growing Tree is to make your infant/toddler feel safe, secure, and nurtured while in our care. We recognize that each child is a unique individual who develops at his/her own rate. Our infants and toddlers are divided into “family pods,” each with a teacher/primary caregiver. Each pod has four children. This method of care giving allows teachers, children, and families the opportunity to work as a team to provide the best care for their child.
We provide an environment that is emotionally warm and nurturing, physically safe and cognitively challenging. Respect is shown to each child along with observations in order to understand and meet his/her individual needs.
