EDUCATION BEGINS NOW

In the Highscope Education Approach, Infants learn through discovery with their teachers – this is called active participatory learning. During active learning, teachers encourage infants and toddlers to discover the world around them by exploring and playing. Development and learning are secured by trusting relationships with teachers, who are close at hand to support children as they play.

THE KIDREPORTS DIGITAL APP WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED THROUGHOUT THE DAY, FOR ULTIMATE PEACE OF MIND

You’ll receive real time photos and notifications with recorded naps, diaper changes, bottles and feedings.

SAFE WARM BOTTLES

Bottles are warmed in Kozii-Kinde warmers and our teachers complete additional safety checks before feeding a bottle. Every infant is held while feeding a bottle. This is a special bonding time between the teacher and infant!

SAFE SLEEP NAPS

We follow our Safe Sleep Policy and infants are always placed to sleep on their backs with no items in their crib.

DIAPERS CHANGED OFTEN

Diapers are changed as needed, never exceeding two hours in-between changes. Parents provide diapers while we provide the wipes.

SHOE-FREE ZONE!

Our infant space is a no-shoes room. As babies learn to crawl, get belly time, and explore their environment, we want to keep the environment clean and safe.

Fitted crib sheet, bottles for the day, extra clothes, pacifier (if needed), jar food (if needed)

Please label bottles with first and last name, date. If breast milk, please also include date expressed.

The ratio in the infant program is one teacher to four children.

We follow Michigan’s Great Start to Quality Educational Standards. All of our lead teachers have a Bachelor, Associates or CDA Degree. Our Assistant Teachers have requirements including courses completed, degree in process, or required training courses.

Yes! Fresh air and a change of scenery is so important for children. We will go outside twice a day to a developmentally appropriate area for infants.

Walking, eating table food, takes one nap per day while in care.

Yes! Anytime. We have an open door policy. Please visit, call or email as often as you’d like!

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

Our child is at the Learning Tree North. Her teachers Noreen, Ashley and Sarah do a great job caring for the children. We are happy with the teachers, facility and the staff of the Learning Tree North. The communication between teachers and parents is exceptional with a cell phone app that is kept up to date. I would not want our child any place else.

We highly recommend Ms. Amanda C. as an Infant teacher! She is so nurturing, patient, and always tells us little stories about our daughter's growth and development. She is so sweet and is very engaged with her job as a care giver to little ones. Our daughter adores her and we adore Ms. Amanda. We also love Ms. Kaitlynn S. and Ms. Stephanie L.! Ms. Kaitlynn made our toddler feel welcome to the class and does a great job teaching her lessons! Ms. Stephanie always looks out for her and our daughter loves to spend time with her and sing songs.

We cannot thank Noreen and Ashley J. enough for all of the love, care, structure and fun they provide for our child on a daily basis. Their energy, PATIENCE, stability and constancy help to give our energetic fearless toddler a routine and safe environment for him to learn and thrive in. I will continue to refer friends and family to Noreen and Ashley because of their dedication and skill with toddlers. The organic menu, the awesome curriculum, size of the classrooms, and the daily app. updates are all just added perks. Can't recommend these employees at the Learning Tree North highly enough!
