At Holly Tree we know the key to success
is partnering with families! We offer many
opportunities for families and teachers to come
together, both individually, and in groups.
Not only do we enjoy these times, we know they
are valuable to children's development.
Early Childhood News experts agree:
Importance of the Family-Teacher Relationship
"Family-teacher relationships can be complex and include many different areas such as the teacher’s relationships with the children; the teacher’s relationships with the children’s families; the teacher’s relationships with colleagues; and the teacher’s relationship with the community. Often, early childhood teachers attend only to their relationships with the children. Yet, our ability to teach children expands past the children and includes family, colleagues, and our own community. By involving all of these components we create a rich environment for our children and serve as models for the children to create positive relationships with other people."

The fabulous photos you see are just one example of how
we brought Holly Tree families together, with our bi-annual
Spaghetti Dinner and Scholastic Book Fair! We had a lot of fun,
and most importantly, our Holly Tree children did, too!
Fun and fellowship are important at Holly Tree. We believe that
parents are their children's first teachers, and that we're here to provide
support and promote early childhood development--in a variety of ways!
We enjoy what we do, and would love to show you just how special Holly Tree can be!
