About Us

The Tree House of Early Learning Daycare in Independence Kansas is a high quality, creative, safe and engaging environment for children ages 18mo. to 6 years. 

     Here at The Tree House of Early Learning we want to bring the outside in, which is where we get our name. We want to provide an environment with a natural cozy feel to promote learning. We support the development of children from 18mo to 6 years through fun, creative and engaging activities that are appropriate for their age and their developmental needs. We also have other exciting activities such as trips to the library, water days, yoga, and field trips! We can't wait to meet you and your family, and make your child's education our priority.

     In addition to having a cozy natural feel to our daycare the children will also feel very at home because our small class size means more one on one attention for each child as they develop and grow. Our multi-age classroom will also allow older children to help teach and become friends with younger ones which is not only great for cognitive development of both but also for development of social skills and empathy. For more information on multi-age classrooms and their advantages please check out this wonderful article on the subject.
