About The Learning Tree
What We Teach
On August 29, 1972, The Church Learning Tree Kindergarten and Childcare began. It was voted in as a Ministry of the First Baptist Church of Winter Park in 1975. The Church Learning Tree consists of several programs: Preschool, Preschool with Childcare, and Elementary Summer Camp. All classes work with a planned curriculum and teaching styles unique to each child. We are first and foremost a Christian School. We introduce children to God and His Son, Jesus Christ, through Bible verses, stories, songs, and small group discussions. Our focus at The Church Learning Tree is to partner with the parent in helping your child become a well-rounded individual; spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. We provide academic learning experiences for all children, infants through Preschool 4’s. We strive to provide a variety of learning experiences using a variety of tools and methods. At The Church Learning Tree, we teach children where they are in their development through their senses: touch, hearing, taste, sight, and smell. Learning occurs through exploration, problem solving, reasoning and decision making. Our babies thru preschool 4’s use the Wee Learn curriculum. In addition, the fours use Writing Without Tears and ABEKA.
The enrichment program of The Church Learning Tree consists of physical education, music, science, Spanish and chapel. As regular parts of their learning, the children are also involved in cooking, library, computers, playground, and play. Three’s and four’s attend chapel every Wednesday starting in August, our two’s start in January. The children enjoy music lead by a staff person and a story or object lesson taught by one of the teachers or staff of FBCWP. Baptist doctrine is not taught at The Church Learning Tree, but the truth of the Bible is. Our goal is not just to provide a safe and stimulating environment for your child, but to take the opportunity to minister to the needs of your whole family. First Baptist Church of Winter Park offers a wide variety of programs designed to meet the needs of individuals and families alike. You are always welcome and encouraged to be a part as you sense a need.
We thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your life and the life of the most precious gift God has given you-your child. We pray that you will be pleased by your experience at The Church Learning Tree in the days and years to come.
The Church Learning Tree Philosophy
We are first and foremost a Christian school. All classes work with a planned curriculum and use teaching methods tailored to the individual child through the use of a variety of learning experiences.
Understanding the different learning styles of children, we facilitate learning through use of their senses: touch, taste, sound, sight and smell. We not only want to provide a safe and stimulating environment for your child, but desire to minister to the needs of your whole family as we have opportunity.
