"Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 2:6

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11


The Learning Tree is an old facility with a new name. Most of the staff, including the owner, Marta Jo Slater, have worked together since 1997. The Learning Tree prides itself on low ratios and staff tenure.

Mission Statement

We, at the Learning Tree, seek foremost to glorify the Lord and nurture children in a happy and secure environment, teaching them scriptural morals and values that will allow them to develop strong Christian character.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to have the children and families who enter the doors of The Learning Tree to sense the love of Jesus as we build lasting relationships together. God has given parents and teachers the awesome responsibility of nurturing the children He has placed in our care.

We believe it is important to teach the word of God to young children. In faith, we believe that when we plant the seeds of God’s word, the child develops in the wisdom and knowledge of God and His ways. Teachers include a daily Bible lesson so that the child’s personal relationship grows and is enhanced with songs, Bible stories and verses. Teachers also use this time to present life application lessons that connect to children’s lives in a meaningful, age appropriate way. In our curriculum, we pray that God will be perceived as our creator and in control of our lives and universe.
