Get ready for Spring

Sure feels like SPRING! Wait…I didn’t even get my sled out! Despite the wacky weather and the mild winter, we’re marching on and pulling out the kites, bubbles, and sidewalk chalk.

We say, “Let’s hit the park. It’s time to play!”

Come see our selection of ride-on toys and colorful helmets, hula hoops, and jump ropes. Swurfer tree swings, bouncy balls, and pogo sticks are all perfect for outdoor play time!

The Learning Tree is Easter Basket Headquarters. We’ve got all the extra goodies that can personalize that Easter basket full of chocolate eggs.

Spring Activity Calendar Highlights – Take a Look:

Music’s in the air at Park Place!

We’re adding on to our weekly fun with 10:30am MusicTime Mondays at Park Place!

Our own Miss Pam, along with her puppet friend Octave-ia, will gather friends for casual music exploration and fun. Using her extensive experience as a preschool teacher, and musical talent (not to mention 21 years as a Toy Expert at the Learning Tree), Miss Pam will present music basics using her guitar, autoharp and kid-sized instruments so everyone can join in the music making.

“Music is a wonderful way for young children to express themselves and learn language skills through rhyme, rhythm, and repetition!” – Pam Farrell

Kids Flea Market 2017

The Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market is a very popular, family friendly, community event that pulls everyone in the neighborhood together!

Whether you set up a family, kid centered booth for selling or shop the market looking for bargains on kid’s stuff everyone is welcome to enjoy the morning!

The Kid’s Flea Market gives kids a chance to run their own business for a few hours and to do a little spring-cleaning in the playroom! With their spot reserved at the Kid’s Flea Market, kids can begin to collect their out-grown and gently used toys, books and games to re-sell and to plan their booth.

Through the years, we’ve seen some very creative booths and merchandising. For the second year, we’ll let you be the judges and cast your vote for BEST BOOTH to add a bit of fun to the day. Handmade signs, banners, or fancy tablecloths are all great ways to make your booth unique and to attract shoppers! The lucky kid winner will get an insiders tour of the Learning Tree and a $25 gift certificate.
