Update (July 22, 2022): Unfortunately, due to low enrollment and staffing challenges, not to mention we are still facing pandemic concerns, the Loving Tree Preschool will not be able to open for the 2022-2023 school year. Registration and enrollment links below have been disabled. If you submitted payment already, it will be refunded asap. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you, and we highly recommend the Christ Lutheran Church Preschool.

Who we are

The Loving Tree School program is “Rooted and Grounded in Love” and has a focus on the social and emotional needs of our children ages 3-5 years old. We believe in treating a child with the same respect you would treat an honored guest. Our program is inclusive of ALL. We are an open, affirming and reconciling school where all are warmly welcomed and treated with respect. We work to promote justice for everyone, cultivate joy and laughter, and give abundantly of our time and talents. We strive to take positive action to help one another, our community and the world. We are advocates for creation, and work to better our ways of being in relationship with the earth.

“My family feels so blessed to have had four years of our two little learners being nurtured at Loving Tree School. My kids met friends, grew in their confidence and learned to be members of a community. I loved the creative projects that the teachers developed. My kids were always excited to tell me about the cool things they’d done at school. We have so many wonderful memories from Loving Tree!” ~Chantee Z, parent
