Both of our sons attended Oak Grove Learning Tree and both loved it. We as parents appreciated the way they worked with kids and families if an issue arose or help was needed. Andrea, Lori and Scott are helpful and welcoming at the front desk and in their management of the school. Each teacher we had as the kids grew was caring and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Our children first began attending Oak Grove Learning Tree/Learning Tree Day School of Oak Grove in May 2019. Our daughter, Rosalind, was just a day over one and our son, Winston, was barely three. Up until this point, both children had been home with us, or with a nanny while we were both at work three days per week. We were very apprehensive to place them in a childcare facility, but after making our way through eight different nannies in only a few months, we decided to give it a try. (Rosie was a screamer with any and all strangers; she never adjusted to a single care provider in our home and they quickly burned out.) Rosie was the youngest child in the facility, the baby of the baby, AKA the Guppies, room. Winston was the oldest of the kiddos in the magical potty training miracle called the Starfish Room. Both children went through a little adjustment period, as expected, but without making a single teacher blink. While they often fussed at drop off, both settled in quickly after parental departure and did great with their new reliable environment and consistent caregivers. (I know this because they tolerated my frequent nervous telephone check-ins daily until I became more comfortable. Perhaps I was the one with stranger anxiety, not the kids! Ha!)Since the adjustment period, the children have done nothing but thrive there. Winston quickly graduated the Starfish Room after becoming confident in his toileting (Thank you Teacher Kerry!) and subsequently moved to the Minnow Room, where he has continued to grow his social, artistic, and motor skills. He recently graduated to the Goldfish Room, but not before learning how to write his name, draw creative self portraits, and name most, if not all, of his colors and shapes, as well as many, many letters. (Thank you, Teacher Kathryn!) He has a number of "best" friends he talks about constantly and asks to attend school nearly every single day. He's extremely happy there. (Thank you, Teacher Kelly!)Rosie is now approaching her transition to the Starfish Room and we couldn't be more delighted. Rosie knows her colors and many shapes as well. She sings many songs at home she has learned, at least partially, at school, and she talks often about "her" babies (AKA the younger students in the Guppy Room). She has had a couple of teachers throughout her stay there (almost 18 months now) and all have been terrific, but Hayley has certainly been among her favorites (Thank you Hayley!). While all of this would have been fantastic during normal, boring, basic times, this is particularly special because we are not living in those times. When the pandemic first started, my husband and I were absolutely overwhelmed trying to brainstorm how we would continue to maintain our employment (both essential workers in engineering and healthcare) and provide safe care to our children. Fortunately, these concerns were quickly dissipated. As we watched many, many local childcare facilities close down, several permanently, Oak Grove Learning Tree has remained open throughout these volatile times. As new state regulations have emerged, again and again, they have risen to meet them, shifting roles, reconfiguring classrooms, and continually maintaining an amazing, safe place for our children to further learn and grow. In a world full of evolving changes, they've given ourchildren consistency, and ourselves peace of mind. We cannot recommend this amazing facility with enough enthusiasm and sincerity.P.S. A huge, grateful thank you to Director Scott, and Administrators Andrea and Laurie, along with anyone else we may not have mentioned by name. We appreciate you! THANK YOU!

My two kiddos have been at OGLT since 2015, with my oldest daughter starting there at age 2 and then my youngest started when she could at 12 months old. I have been an educator for over 10 years and my children are ages 5 and 8, and I can say with full confidence that OGLT is the best daycare provider I have ever had experience with. I have had many positive and negative experiences with various daycare providers around Oregon, and I would not want to have my children anywhere else. The staff and supervisors (Scott and Andrea) are so flexible and understanding, and it truly feels like a home environment. I know that all the staff at OGLT care about my kids and have their best interests at heart. I have had some challenging scheduling issues and parenting dynamics, and they handle everything with understanding and professionalism. I seriously cannot say enough nice things about them and would recommend them to anyone.

Our daughter loves Oak Grove Learning Tree. As parents, we have watched her grow and develop throughout the years at OGLT. We are greeted each morning with a smile from Andrea and Lori making drop off a breeze. We started at OGLT when our daughter was 1.5 and in diapers, she then moved to Kerry's class, where Kerry worked on potty training. We have been so impressed with how Scott keeps parents informed, and how he implemented individual curriculums so each child is successful. Never once have I been concerned about my daughter's well-being while at OGLT. I HIGHLY recommend them if you are looking for a phenomenal daycare.

My son went here for close to a year before my husband had to change jobs. The took great care of him. He came home everyday with projects and new things to show me. He even had some terrible two moments and they handled it very well

Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
This article aims to show you where to look for information about school reopening protocols, school reopening communications, schools that have closed, and schools with COVID-19 cases, among other COVID-19 related issues.
