Why Choose Tree of Life?

NAEYC Accredited

Tree of Life Christian Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. This prestigious recognition is achieved by only five percent of early childhood programs and signifies our program meets national standards of excellence. We are very proud of this accreditation which ensures the best quality of our children’s daily experiences and promotes positive early childhood outcomes.

Parent Co-0p

Parent participation serves a special role in helping to make the classroom a safe and fun place as well as developing a relationship with your child and his/her classmates. Our parents and staff work together to build a sense of community spirit and a positive foundation for you and your child’s future school experience!

Extended Class Times

With a class length of 2 hours and 45 minutes, we offer a schedule that allows for more contact time with our students than other area preschools while accommodating most morning K4/half-day kindergarten pick-up times in the area. We also offer a flexible Extended Day option for our Preschool students. This additional 75 minutes of class time includes extra enrichment with teachers, additional projects/experiments and gross motor activities as well as the opportunity to enjoy a packed lunch in a community setting with their peers.

Lengthened School Year

New this past year, our school calendar ends just one week prior to Whitefish Bay Public Schools. Classes begin just one week after the Whitefish Bay Public Schools and follows the school district’s calendar regarding breaks and holidays for convenient planning for families with students of multiple ages.
