Open space for open minds
Exploration and learning through play
The Learning Tree, formerly known as The Wonder Years, is a fully licensed preschool and group daycare center established since 1997. We have a preschool in West Roxbury and a preschool in Needham that opens from 8.00am-5.00pm. We accept children aged from 15 months to children 6 years of age. During the school year, we offer extended hours starting at 7:30am. Our preschools are equipped with toys and supplies that encourage children to build, explore, and learn new ideas based upon their experiences.

It is our mission to create a learning environment where each student feels safe, loved and valued. The family-like atmosphere promotes creative expression, hands on learning and respect for the similarities and differences of others. Working together with children and their families to build community and communication is very important for us. Education is a life long journey that starts with the very earliest experience of being in preschool. These building blocks set a stable and grounded foundation for future learning. Your choice of entrusting these very meaningful years of your child’s education with us is an honor and privilege.
The Learning Tree’s goal is to provide the best quality care for children in a nurturing, caring and safe educational environment. The homelike quality of our school contributes to a relaxed, focused experience for each child. We believe our program has achieved the proper balance between academics and play. Playing for the simple fun of it, as part of the child’s overall learning experience is important to us. Our days consist of structured and developmentally appropriate activities, which will help your child to develop emotionally, socially and physically. As working parents there is a level of stress that you all endure, therefore, we ensure that your child is well cared for in a safe and happy environment making this one less thing for you to worry about during your busy day.
Our educators are trained professionals chosen for their dedication to young children. They respect and love working with children, helping them to grow and adjust to the various stages of their lives. Our main focus is on your child’s self-esteem, as a solid foundation for his/her development. Positive reinforcement, praise and recognition are encouraged. Developing a positive self-image that your child carries through life is an important goal for us in the Learning Tree. We believe that through caring, listening, sharing, understanding and loving, we can enhance your child’s self-esteem so that he/she may look at the world and see endless possibilities and face every new challenge with excitement and confidence.
