At the Windham Learning Tree Academy, each of our Early Pre-K teachers has extensive experience working with young children, as well as the patience, understanding, and love to help them enjoy what may be a first school experience away from home.

Our low student-to-teacher ratios ensure that these young children benefit from the individualized attention they need to mature, while still learning the socialization skills they require to interact well with their peers.
