Where better to affirm children and teach them to succeed in school and life, than in their early years and in community? The Learning Tree offers a curriculum and programs that are truly child-centered. Through a capable, dedicated and compassionate staff, committed to developing in our children a strong sense of themselves and a solid foundation in the basics, our students are supported in being confident and able learners.
The Learning Tree follows the New York State curriculum and enriches it with strong arts and cultural studies components. Math, reading, writing, science, social studies, arts, African Diaspora and physical education are all important components of our curriculum. We also emphasize the development of social skills and character. Students engage in community service projects, field trips, and class plays. Our arts curriculum includes dance, drum, and visual arts. Curriculum is complemented with appropriate field trips: Third grade takes a full-day cultural trip to Pennsylvania Dutch Country, fourth grade visits Historic Pennsylvania, and fifth grade takes a three-day field trip to our nation’s capital and other historic locations. Kindergarten through second grades also take various educational trips.
