Founded in 2005, Growing Tree Learning Center(Little Tree Montessori International School) is committed to providing children with an English-Mandarin bilingual immersion education in a Montessori environment. Our school offers high quality full day programs for children between the ages of 2 years (18 months at GTLC) to 6 years old.
We believe that education is a process and children are constantly learning and uniquely developing their own sense of self. Through our commitment to Montessori materials and training, our aspiration is to provide an environment that encourages the balanced development of body, mind, and spirit leading to the fulfillment of each child’s individual academic and personal potential.
Our Montessori classroom environments allow children to gain a sense of order, independence, concentration, and coordination, as well as develop their curiosity, creativity, self-knowledge, interpersonal communication skills in both languages, empathy toward others, and confidence as a preparation for life. We carefully plan for a physical environment that is stimulating, attractive and warm that includes the outdoors as an integral part of our program.
We currently have seven locations to serve families in the Santa Clara Valley and East Bay – Saratoga (2 sites), Cupertino, Campbell, Sunnyvale, Fremont, and El Cerrito. We look forward to meeting you!
