The Learning Tree

We are a full time preschool/kindergarten program designed to stimulate learning and social activities in a fun and enriching environment. The Leaning Tree strives to create enriching experiences outside the home to give children the full, happy young life their parents want for them.

We believe that each child deserves individual respect and attention as well as a chance to participate in stimulating learning and social activities with peers. The Learning Tree program is designed to broaden the child's awareness of the total world around him/her, while learning at their own pace. We also offer after school pick up for surrounding elementary schools.

Operating as usual

This is a week late...

We had an eventful day and an eggtastic Easter party last Friday (April 2nd)!

We hunted eggs, ate treats from our Easter baskets, ate yummy party food, had 4 chicks hatch in the Grade School room and a bunny named Olaf came to visit the children!

Those tricky Leprechauns! They visited our school and left a BIG mess 😰😫! We set up lots of traps but they were too quick for us! Hopefully we’ll catch one next year 😉.

Dec 31st: Gs field trip to the bowling alley

Waiting for 2020 to be over has been excruciating, like this bowling ball that decided to ACTUALLY go backwards 😂

“Don’t worry it’s coming back...” NOPE

Santa and The Mrs. came to visit the Learning Tree today!! This was his visit to the Dinosaur Room and my grand daughter Lucy Jo got to meet him for the first time!! Merry Christmas to all from the Dinosaur Teachers 🎅🏻🎄🧑🏻‍🎄

11/19/2020

We loved Miss Meranda and her socks! We miss her so and would like to honor her in anyway we can. If you would like to donate a pair, you can drop it off at the school and we will be sure to take them to a local shelter. Thank you so much for helping!

10/29/2020

The Monkey class went on a surprise field trip to Harrison Blvd today. We walked past a bunch of scary houses but this one stuck out to us. Stay safe this Halloween! 👻🎃

The bake sale was a success! Thank you all that helped us out sending the gradeschoolers to Bogus for a day of fun. It was definitely an interesting summer for them, but we made it work!

08/14/2020

Happy last day of swim lessons! These kiddos have come so far.

07/31/2020

Our very own Katrina is switching careers after fifteen fun-filled years. We will miss her laugh, energy, humor, and excitement. We wish her luck as she begins this new chapter in her life. We know she’ll do great. Farewell, our little hurricane. We love you so.

We are talking about Fairy Tales in the Dinosaur Class. So today we decided to write our own! Enjoy the quick read 😁😉

07/21/2020

We are so proud of the kids for wearing their masks! They have been such troupers with all of these changes we have had to make. They really are resilient! Thank you, parents, for working with us during this time. We are lucky we have such wonderful families here at the LT.

07/16/2020

It is with great sadness that we inform you that the Learning Tree family has lost a wonderful person, teacher, friend, and co-worker. Meranda Green was the head teacher in the Dinosaur room from 2012 until 2017; she passed away this last Sunday from cancer. Words cannot begin to express the utter devastation and sadness we are feeling right now. We miss her and will always cherish the time we had with her. She loved all her students and enjoyed watching them grow. She not only made a serious impact on them, but on our school as a whole. Our sincerest condolences go out to her friends and family.

Some of the Dinosaurs had fun throwing the helicopter maple seeds up in the air today, in slow motion!! 😳😁

Kit had an extra guest for swim lessons today!! He chickened out though, he didn’t want to get his feathers wet!!

Boise Parks and Recreation

After careful consideration, leaders from the City of Boise and the Boise Parks and Recreation Department have made the tough decision not to open the city’s municipal swimming pools this year. Uncertainty surrounding the continued spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), public safety, and cost evaluations based on a shortened season all factored into the decision. CDC guidance related to water parks and public pools also supports this determination: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/visitors.html

The closure of pools in 2020 means there will be no Youth Summer Recreational Swim Team. In addition, the department will not be offering any swimming lessons in 2020. We understand this is a disappointing announcement for many families and we look forward to reopening safely in 2021. Read the full statement here: https://www.cityofboise.org/news/parks-and-recreation/2020/may/city-of-boise-outdoor-pools-will-not-open-in-2020/

[04/21/20]   We will be having another drive-through on Wednesday, April 22nd from 9:30-10:30 in the morning. We will have a packet to give to each student, if you would like. Please stay in your car; there will be no need to get out. We are excited to see you and wave to all our friends! We sure miss you all!
