The Learning Tree

Opens September 2018!

We are so excited to open our doors this September to serve families in the Huntersville area! The Learning Tree offers a half-day, school-year (September-May) preschool program with the option of both extended-day and year-round care. In the summer, we will offer a series of half-day camps, while continuing the option of extended day. In 2018-19, our enrollment will be approximately 70 children and we will look to expand in our capacity and reach each year to educate “one more child” (up to 140).

The Learning Tree is a God-centered, relational environment, where your child can discover the world through exploration, interaction and investigation.  Our high-quality teachers will nurture and guide toward “whole child”  healthy development – social, emotional, cognitive, language, physical and spiritual.


Developing the ‘whole child’ through high-quality guided learning, in a loving Christian environment.

As a ministry of Lake Forest Church, The Learning Tree welcomes a diverse community of families. Our mission is to reach out to any family needing high-quality education and nurturing care for their young child/children, in a Christian environment. The Learning Tree offers financial scholarships for families of first-responders and those meeting qualifications based on income and number of family dependents.

At The Learning Tree, your child will:
DISCOVER: Who they are, the world they live in, and the God who loves them.
BELONG: In stimulating, nurturing relationship with teachers, other students and their families.
SHARE: Their unique emerging gifts, capabilities and passions.
GO: Well-prepared into their next phase of school and life.
