ENERGY DRAINED

We provide before and after transportation and care for children in Kindergarten through 12 years of age (excluding the West location). We know children had long days at school, and we want to provide them with a fun environment with their friends here!

BUS SNACKS

School Agers are greeted with a snack for the bus ride in the afternoon, along with an additional snack at the center.

STOCKED ART AREA

We have fun keeping up with the latest and greatest “in” items to stock our School Age Classrooms. Plenty of duct tape, beads, sharpies and several other special art items are always in our classroom.

HOMEWORK TIME

We understand parents are busy and encourage time for homework to be started.

Wii GAMES

Our school agers have options of active Wii games each day to keep their bodies moving and have a blast.

SCHOOL’S OUT? WE’RE THE BACK UP PLAN!

When school is out, we are in! We have a separate back up care program for days schools are closed for holidays and professional development. We always plan a field trip to take children on when school is out.

SNACKS

Before school – we’ll get them breakfast!
After school – we’ll get them a snack on the bus on the way to us, and then at 5pm again to hold them off for dinner.

BUS TRANSPORTATION

Bus transportation to and from your child’s school is available during the school year. All of our bus drivers hold a Michigan Chauffeurs License and have been trained in proper vehicle safety. All of our vehicles are equipped with first aid kits and GPS. Your child’s school schedule and emergency card are always carried when picking up or dropping off your child. At the beginning of the school year our drivers communicate with your child’s school to designate a safe and appropriate pick up and drop off area for children attending The Learning Tree.

CURRICULUM

The curriculum for the School-Age Program differs as the children spend most of their time at school. Goals for the School-Age Program include:

  • Providing quiet area for homework and study after school
  • Be available to help encourage children with their class work
  • Provide children with games that introduce the concept of strategy
  • Encourage children to make classroom rules to develop accountability
  • Provide children with games that teach mathematics and reasoning skills
  • Off-site field trips when schools are on holiday breaks. Popular destinations include: swimming, bowling, roller-skating and visits to the Science Center

We ask parents to bring a water bottle, extra clothes on the first day. Nap Items are needed too – a fitted sheet and a blanket or stuffed animal your child is comfortable with!

Our bus drivers drive either a 14 passenger multi-functional school bus, or a minivan. All of our vehicles have regular safety checks and maintenance.

The classroom ratio is 1 teacher to 18 children. On field trips, our ratio is 1 teacher to 12 children. However, if on a swimming field trip, our ratio is 1 teacher to 4 children.

Yes! Fresh air and a change of scenery is so important for children. School Agers have scheduled time outside in the afternoons, and twice if attending a full day.

Yes! That is what we are here for! We have a separate Back Up Care Program that provides care (and fun) when school is not in session.

Safety is our top priority!  We created and implement an allergy procedure that includes a special placemat used for a food allergy.  While the child’s picture and allergy information is posted, the child will also use a placemat at all snacks and meal times that alert their allergy.  The placemat is a great tool for children to learn about allergies and be aware of allergies.  We have received amazing feedback form our state licensing consultants on how well this is implemented in our classrooms!  

What Parents Have to Say

I LOVE Miss Brenda! She has made taking my little one to daycare so much easier on the both of us! She gives great recaps of her day and always keeps me updated through kid reports! My daughter really does love her as well! Thank you for being so amazing !

Our son has been going to Learning Tree West for about 5 months now and has grown exponentially. We love the staff, the schedule, the food they provide and the small stuff they do for the families. It’s a bigger “daycare” that still works to provide the “family” feel - and that’s so important to both myself and my sons father. Highly recommend!
