Our Philosophy

Nurturing child development in an enriching, creative and high-quality learning environment.

The Windham Learning Tree Academy believes that children are growing physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually. We believe in an individualized and well-balanced program that builds on each individual child’s self-esteem and self-confidence in a safe, healthy quality learning environment.

The Windham Learning Tree Academy curriculum is carefully planned and then integrated into the classroom through a thematic approach and offers learning activities that are relevant, concrete age appropriate and real. We strive to expose children to a variety of enrichment programs including culture and foreign language, culinary arts, music, physical fitness, nutrition and much more that enhance their learning experience.

We value and support our teaching staff and feel that they are the key to a quality program. We carefully choose qualified educators that are well rounded and foster an enthusiasm and education specifically in early childhood development.

We recognize the importance of connecting school and home and offer many opportunities for parents and families to participate and be a part of our program and their child’s educational experience.

We assess and evaluate each child and our program as a whole continually and adapt the program as needed.

We acknowledge and support the diversity of the school community and strive to offer programs that meet each family’s individual needs.

Your child is our focus.

About Our Daily Program



The Academy offers small group, large group, teacher-directed and child-directed activities designed to foster development in the areas of social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth. Activities are varied to foster the developmental needs and interests of the children in the classroom.

Hands-on Experience

Children are encouraged to communicate and interact with each other and teachers. We help foster this through many hands-on experiences where children learn by doing. Children participate in regular classroom tasks and special projects to help promote the hands-on experiences that encourage their development.

Learning Centers

There are a choice of learning centers in each classroom and outdoors, including those for science, art, dramatic play, language arts and mathematics. Every child has the opportunity to participate in every learning center, especially those that most capture their interests and foster the opportunity for exploration and learning.
