Treehouse takes pride in our unique infant programs. We have
three infant classrooms ranging in ages 6 weeks to one year
. We believe in separating infants based not only on ages
but developmental skills as well. Parents are asked to
supply diapers and one package of wipes per month. We also
ask for changes of clothes along with any formula and jar
food for your child. The Treehouse provides items such as
bibs, sheets, blankets, toys, equipment, sippy cups, cereal,
etc.. Each child is assigned to his/her own crib and bedding
is laundered each night. Mothers who are breast feeding and
work in the area are always welcome to stop by and feed
their baby. We are happy to provide a quiet area for you and
Our youngest infant room is for children age 6 weeks until they are ready to
move around and start to crawl. These children receive one
on one time from teachers, tummy time which aids in
development, rides on the Bye Bye Buggies, bubble play,
puppet shows, and the love and care they deserve each day.
Our infant teachers are dedicated to making your babies
first child care experience a comfortable one.
The second infant room is a transitional room from crawling
to pulling up. These children have age appropriate toys
available for developing the skills they need to learn to
crawl and pull up. This classroom has a smaller amount of
children to allow more one on one time with teachers.
Teachers focus on social skills such as sharing toys and
general interaction with peers. Daily routines include rides
on the Bye Bye Buggies, bubble play, reading books, and
special help with developing fine and gross motor skills.
The third and last infant room is for infants pulling up and moving around to
walking! This is an exciting age for parents and our older
infant staff. This room provides more space for older
infants to crawl and take those first “wobbly” steps. There
are many surfaces for children to pull up and move around.
Teachers enjoy music and movement activities, teaching basic
signs, story time, and special outdoor time. This is also
the last room children sleep in cribs.
Class (1 year/walking – 18
The waddler classroom
is the first transition for children from crib to cot and
from two naps to one nap during the day.
These children also
begin their first curriculum experiences. Students are
encouraged to “use their words” to express themselves. Our
toddler playground was designed just for this age group. It
features smaller playground equipment and very few “blind
spots” for teachers. The waddlers sit in specially designed
table seats for eating time. These tables allow our teachers
to focus on introducing a spoon and encouraging good eating
Class (18 – 24 months)
Our toddler room
increases the amount of classroom structure from the waddler
room while still attending to this age group’s needs.
Children are introduced to sitting at tables with chairs at
meal and activity times. The amount of curriculum time is
also increased. Children are encouraged to use their
blossoming language skills with books, songs, finger plays,
and poetry. This classroom also participates in a weekly
music and movement class taught by Lisa Bradley. Each day
the class holds a morning circle time with a story and the
lesson of the day. They utilize the toddler and two’s
playgrounds for outdoor playtime. Children generally remain
in this classroom until they are ready to begin potty
“developmental separation” concept used for our infant
classrooms are also implemented in our two year old
programs. The first two year old class is the potty training
room. This is such a milestone for children and parents!
Teachers work hard to introduce the potty and help children
“graduate” from toddler to two year old. Children begin
drinking from regular cups at mealtime and also are
encouraged to transition away from pacifiers, blankets, etc.
that often hinder activity and socialization in the
classroom. Children are taken to the potty each hour and a
potty chart is kept for parent convenience. This classroom
also participates in weekly music and movement classes with
The second two year
old classroom is our older two year olds. Children to begin
increasing structured learning time in order to focus on
getting ready for our three year old and pre-school
programs. Most of these students have either “mastered” the
potty or require less focus on potty training. This class
participates in the weekly music and movement classes with
Lisa Bradley as well.
Following in the
tradition of the infant and two year old classrooms, The
Treehouse has two three year old classrooms as well. The
younger three year old classroom starts the journey to
kindergarten. Students are learning beginning cutting, math,
color recognition, sequencing, and writing skills to prepare
them for Pre-K.
This classroom also begins taking The
Treehouse annual field trips. Throughout the school year
students travel to educational sites such as Oatland Island
and seasonal trips such as the Pumpkin Patch in October, a
train ride at the mall in December and the strawberry farm
in the summer. Teachers also begin focusing on behavior in
an educational setting by sending home daily behavior
reports to bridge the gap between home and school.
Our older three year
old classroom also has four year old children who have
“missed” the cut off date for Pre-K. Students focus on
learning the following skills, counting basic numbers 1-10
and higher, letters and sounds of the alphabet, shapes and
colors, days of the week/months of the year, and learning to
write his/her name and numbers 1-10. Our older three year
old classroom also takes an annual field trip to pick out
their own class pet. Each Friday children are asked to bring
in one special item for show and tell. Students enjoy
sharing their special items from home with one another.
At The Learning
Treehouse, we choose to offer a private Pre-K program. Our
goal is to prepare your child for his/her kindergarten test
at the end of the year while creating special memories that
will last a lifetime. We have carefully selected a
curriculum that focuses on academics yet allows our teachers
to support each child’s weaker areas. The Early Beginnings
program focuses on basic readiness skills.
the following skills in math: Colors, shapes, patterning,
sorting by colors, positional words, identifying numbers,
ordinal numbers, and sets, and the use of a graph.
focus on the following skills in language arts:
introduced to the first 50 sight words, the letters of the
alphabet and their sounds. Children are taught the D’Nealian
style of printing, this is the same style that Effingham
County Schools use. Before the end of the school year,
children will be able to put sight words into sentences and
We always end our circle time reading stories to
develop strong listening and oral language skills. In
addition to our morning circle time, our Pre-K program
spends time throughout the day learning social skills,
independence, table manners, and learning to share and play
in a cooperative manner.
In December the Pre-K students
perform a wonderful Christmas play for parents and family
members. We end the year with a graduation ceremony complete
with caps and gowns for our graduates.
Treehouse serves Blandford, South Effingham and Ebenezer
Elementary schools. Upon arrival, afterschoolers are served a
substantial snack. We choose to serve a heavier snack
because students have eaten lunch so much earlier in the
day, they are generally very hungry once they arrive at our
After snack is completed, children begin on
homework. At our main location, we separate the afterschoolers into three groups; Pre-K/Kindergarten, Grades
1-2, and grades 3-6. This allows the older students with
more homework to have a longer quiet time without making the
younger children who have completed their work wait.
Teachers offer help with homework and check their work.
However, we always encourage parents to go over homework
with their children each night. After homework is completed,
students generally work on a fun activity and then go
outside (weather permitting).
Our afterschool teachers
encourage working together to play outdoor, card, and board
games. On days the schools are closed and The Treehouse is
open, your afterschooler is welcome to attend from
6:30am-6:30pm. We charge an additional $15.00 for these days
because we provide breakfast and lunch. We may take a field
trip these days which is at no cost to you.
Treehouse strives to make our afterschool program a home
away from home for school age children. We believe in
offering time for relaxing and having fun after a hard day
(Our afterschoolers currently enrolled also have
first choice of enrollment in our summer camp program.)
Each summer, The
Learning Treehouse features an exciting summer camp for
children Kindergarten-fifth grade. Our camp spends time
traveling all over the Coastal Empire to destinations such
as Oatland Island, Midnight Star Pottery, Georgia Southern
Raptor Center, Splash in the Boro water park, The Warnell
Forrest Education Center, and many more!
All field trips and
meals are included in weekly tuition. Space is always
limited therefore, we ask that you call March 1st of each
year to enroll and fasten your seatbelts for a wonderful and
