Helping children learn is a super exciting and fulfilling process! Here are some of the ways we teach.

Butterfly Life Cycle

From caterpillars, to chrysalises, then to butterflies 🦋 We LOVED watching the Butterfly Life Cycle happen right before our eyes! Setting them free and saying bye was bittersweet and definitely entertaining 😂.

Puffy Paint Sight Words

The concentration was out of this world for all of our kids using the paint. Simple, homemade recipes make the kids even more excited to use them 😃 We love to see their brains growing while having fun!

Colorful Lava Lamps

We put on our scientist hats and made some LAVA LAMPS 🧪 Our kids get so excited when it’s science experiment day! We love exploring with them and seeing their reactions is always priceless 🙈 SCIENCE RULES!

What parents are saying…

We take our responsibility of looking after your kiddos very serious! See what other parents are saying about us on Google and Facebook.

Miss Megan worked as a paraprofessional in my kindergarten class and was the best teacher and role model to those kids. Her love for education and the students she taught showed each and every day. It’s no wonder why she won Classified Teacher of the Year at our school. I will forever be grateful for the amazing work that she does and I am certain that Willow Tree Learning Center will be absolutely wonderful! My husband and I can’t hardly wait to have our own kids to take them to Miss Megan.

Ms. Megan is the best! She develops personal relationships with each kid and really goes all out to make a great environment for them. Our daughter always gets so excited to go to class and always comes back eager to show us what she’s learned, and has declared a great many times that Ms. Megan is one of her best friends. We are so thankful to have found this school!
