About our Preschool
At Olive Tree, our mission is to provide a high quality early childhood experience to every child. We provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment to present opportunities for children to grow and develop as lifelong learners. This Child Development program examines the needs of the children, families and the community we serve. Our Program has an important role in shaping their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of young children.
The philosophy of Olive Tree Learning Academy has been designed through a holistic approach where every child is valued, respected, and seen as an individual. Our classroom environment encourages trust, independence, and responsibility. We believe this will help children gain a positive self-concept and self-discipline.
We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Children will explore, investigate, experience, and discover through hands-on and developmentally age-appropriate activities. Through play, freedom is fostered to children, so they can try outing with new ideas, developing social skills, and “readiness” skills.
We offer small class size, ideal student/teacher ratio where children, family, and staff will work collaboratively with one another. We believe parents are our partners and strive for our families to become actively involved in their child’s learning program. We believe together we can build an early foundation towards a successful school experience.
For the children, we strive to maintain a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment where the developmental needs of the children are addressed. For the parents, we strive to keep the program affordable and available. For staff, we strive to provide an atmosphere that will attract and retain well-trained personnel by maintaining good working conditions. We encourage a sense of cooperation and open communication among members of the preschool community. The program maintains high educational and training requirements for staff.
