About Us


Our Approach

Giving Tree Family Learning Center is based on the belief that when we work together as a community, everyone benefits. We welcome all kinds of learners and appreciate the differences and similarities amongst us. We are a fully licensed full service day care provider servicing all children from the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years. In our small in-home environment, we offer a safe and happy learning environment that focuses on each child as a unique and wonderful individual.


We believe in a constructivist, play based approach to learning with explicit teaching embedded within. Children need to explore to learn. This may mean they get dirty, run, jump, investigate, study, read, write, or reflect to explore the world around them.

We have a hands-on approach to learning and immerse children in what we are  studying. We consider the physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and cultural development of each child when building our responsive curriculum.

The first years of a child’s life is by far the most significant in helping to lay the foundation for the rest of their lives.

"Regardless of ZIP code, students  should have access to high-quality, equitable learning experiences."

I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Arcadia University before serving as a classroom teacher for 6 years. Through a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, I facilitated authentic learning experiences to allow students to co-create their education and consistently outperform peers on standardized assessments.

I envision excellence for all students. Regardless of ZIP code, students should have access to high-quality, equitable learning experiences. It is my job to inspire learners and teachers through a partnership in discovery and to prepare children for an ever-changing world.
