Learning Environment

At Peace Tree, children thrive in a prepared environment that nurtures order, concentration and independence. Children learn to become active seekers of knowledge where they have the freedom and tools to pursue their own interests. This set up accommodates all learning styles and allows each individual to learn at their own pace and advance when they are ready.
