Growing Tree Academy Preschool and Childcare Center ("GTA") is an exceptional early childhood education program that combines learning with play for children ages infant to first grade. We are located in Vista, California and have served families from Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, Oceanside and Bonsall. Our school is located on an idyllic two-acre campus.
Growing Tree Academy (formerly know as The Learning Village and also as Honey Bear Preschool and Childcare) is located on two-acres of beautiful country landscape on Taylor Street in North Vista. There are many trees, plants, flowers, and a creek which provides an appealing atmosphere. We have an upper play yard with a slide, swings and other play equipment, and a larger play yard in the lower field. One of our many unique attributes is our large play areas and fields, including a real, outdoor stage that we utilize to produce shows and plays.
The school building is about 3,000 square feet with 5 classrooms for infants through Kindergarten/First Grade. Consistently, our Kindergarten and First Grade graduates who enter into local first and second grade classrooms have excellent reading, math and classroom skills. Our classes at Growing Tree Academy are small and individualized, creating a perfect environment for the Kindergarteners and First Graders to learn Spanish, French, American Sign Language in addition to the traditional curriculum of Reading, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
Growing Tree Academy stresses education, not only in its children's programs, but also for its teachers and parents, as its highest priority. We are a family run and owned infant care, preschool, and Kindergarten/First Grade education center with child development as our core operating philosophy. Our programs are regularly evaluated and upgraded following the latest progress in the field of infant and child development.
