Welcome to Orange Tree!
Our goal is to nurture young children in a loving environment and to provide each child with a positive introduction to formal education. We believe that each child is a unique gift of God and that a child’s first school experience is important because it lays the foundation for all future educational experiences. Therefore, we provide an encouraging atmosphere conducive to individual growth and development.
Our approach involves the whole child and recognizes that each one develops at his or her own rate. We strive to provide an environment that is safe, loving and rich in opportunities for learning and growth through age appropriate, hands-on activities.
We use project-based learning, social emotional learning, integrated studies and multidisciplinary studies. We use operant conditioning which is positive affirmation for the desired behavior and then good old-fashioned practice!
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
— Proverbs 22:6
