Founded in 1978 in a vacant church building surrounded by green fields and grazing cattle, Raintree is a private school which implements the Montessori philosophy of education.
Raintree offers half, extended and full-day classes for children ages 3-6 years.
In 1986 a full-day toddler class was added for children 18 months to age 3.
In 1992 Raintree expanded its program to included the elementary child, and now offers an ungraded Montessori elementary program for children ages 6-12.
In addition to the regular program, Raintree offers a summer camp for both Raintree students and those in Lawrence and surrounding communities.
Raintree's Toddler Community and Children's Houses are licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
